Our Mission

Midwest Lighting Institute (MLI) moves laboratory research on light’s effect on human physiological responses into real world environments. We measure changes in human performance and well-being attributable to improved lighting systems and evaluate the savings from reduced energy and maintenance costs;. If the results show positive impacts for people and the installation is cost effective, we can speed up the adoption of these lighting installations for the benefit of everyone. We believe lighting based on proven science can improve human health, productivity and safety while creating short and long term financial benefits for the adopting company.
