Abstract: A metric is a well-defined measure that a designer can use to evaluate a design.
For many years, the most widely used metrics in general lighting practice have
been the average illuminance, the associated illuminance uniformity, the daylight
factor, the correlated colour temperature and the CIE General Colour Rendering
Index of the light source, the Unified Glare Rating and the power density of the
installation. All these metrics have limitations with the result that there are now
many proposals for replacing them with metrics more suited to delivering better
lighting. This paper, which is based on the presentations given at the LRT
symposium held in London on the 15 July 2014, considers the desirable attributes
of a metric, summarises the proposed new metrics and considers how likely they
are to be adopted and, if they are, whether or not they are likely to lead to better
