The Light of Your Life: Building the Case for Circadian Lighting by Craig DiLouie

As interest in circadian lighting grows, the lighting industry is developing metrics and products while validating approaches. This article provides a refresher on circadian lighting and focuses on three recent studies pointing to potential benefits.
1) Healthcare project – In August 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a Gateway evaluation of a circadian lighting project at a hospital. The report documents the strategy and resulting circadian stimulus (CS) measurements.
2) Office study – The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., recently published the results of a major study demonstrating that office workers receiving high levels of circadian-effective light can experience better sleep and lower levels of depression and stress.
3) Circadian task lighting study – In response to the GSA study findings, the LRC theorized supplemental task lighting could be used to ensure office workers receive enough CS during the day.
