We need to explore and create new ways of working to capture the potential added value of SSL. Human-centric lighting provides a more positive social effect.

Kearney consultants wrote a report recently on behalf of LightingEurope, partner in the Lighting For People project, in which quantitative estimations are given of the benefits of human centric lighting.
