What should be the lighting power densities in warehouse?


Good day,

I am involved in designing and constructing 7 of industrial warehouses for an end user.

I would like to ensure the electrical engineer designs the warehouse lighting to an efficient design. What should the lighting power density be for the warehouse component of the development please?


Hi Nick

I have worked on 3 industrial warehousing projects now which were targeting Green Star submission, and below is what we were able to achieve.

Project #1 - 4W/m2 in the warehouse box (flourescent high-bays)
Project #2 - 2.5W/m2 in the warehouse box (LED high-bays)
Project #3 - Still under design - will update once completed.

Hope this helps,
