Abstract—Lighting accounts for a significant amount of energy consumption in buildings especially public ones, up to 45% of the total consumed. This energy consumption can be reduced by as much as 60% through several design approaches as well as lighting control strategies. With particular focus on public buildings, where the application of this strategy is more challenging to apply due to differences in individual occupancy patterns, this paper covers and discusses items like role of lighting on comfort of occupants. Search terms were defined with use of three categories, namely ‘occupancy patterns’,‘ lighting control strategy’ , and ‘ public space or building’. Relevant articles were selected by a structured search through key online scientific databases and journals. 
Although lighting currently tends to be controlled at workspace level or in public spaces, many aspects of the lighting strategies can be further developed; there is potential to further increase energy savings on lighting within open-plan public spaces.
