Abstract

Street lighting aims to contribute to the well-being and safety of citizens, and Performance Evaluation emerges as a tool to aid them in their management process. This study aims to explore what the literature offers on performance evaluation in street lighting management, in order to develop knowledge in the researchers, and clearly presenting research opportunities. In this regard, a Bibliographic Portfolio is composed from the most relevant scientific publications; Bibliometrics and a Systematic Review were performed as well. The process guided by the instrument of intervention, called ProKnow-C, presented research gaps and opportunities on the topic in question.
