Energy efficient corridor illumination in commercial and residential buildings is becoming increasingly important in the energy conservation era. Lighting control systems with adequate algorithms are basically used for energy saving. The integration of daylight with electric light in building corridors during daytime hours is a key element in designing the lighting control system. The most common form of electric lighting control is the on/off "toggle" switch. Other forms of lighting control include occupancy sensors, daylight sensors, clock switches, a variety of manual and automatic dimming devices, and centralized controls. The selection of sensor and type of lighting control depends on the application and the area where it is used. Mostly, occupancy sensor and photosensors are used in corridors. The corridor is not always occupied with people, rather people are moving continuously in a corridor. So, required illumination in a corridor is less as compared with a room or a hall. The twilight and night time illumination requirements are different and have additional behavioral and security issues associated. For corridors, required illumination or light intensity usually ranges from 50 to I00 lux [1]. The main aim of this paper includes the study and analysis of the good practice of energy-efficient lighting for corridor. The major findings in this study are that the energy-efficient lighting design could still be achieved without sacrificing the visual comfort and aesthetic requirement of the building, which is always a major issue of the owner. However, Energy-efficient lighting could be more easily implemented if it is considered right from the early design stage
