Book Description

Up to 40% of the energy needed to light a building can usually be saved when good use is made of daylighting. With such savings in mind, building designers have started using innovative daylighting systems. These work by redirecting incoming natural light to where it is needed, for instance to the rear of deep rooms, whilst reducing glare and discomfort for occupants. This book evaluates more than 30 such innovative systems. 71 pages.
