    Abstract : Lighting accounts for one-fifth of global electricity use. In Sweden, energy demand for lighting corresponds to 20% of the total electricity use in office buildings. Lighting retrofit measures are considered to be among the most cost-efficient way to reduce energy use in buildings. READ MORE

  5. 5. Solar Shading for Low Energy Use and Daylight Quality in Offices: Simulations, Measurements and Design Tools

    University dissertation from LTH, Lund University

    Author : Marie-Claude Dubois; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; screens; venetian blinds; awnings; design tools; measurements; computer simulations; solar-protective glass; heating; cooling; visual comfort; daylighting; energy use; Shading devices; solar protection; Architecture; interior design; Arkitektur; inredningsarkitektur; Energy research; Energiforskning;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the impact of solar shading devices on energy use and daylight quality in office rooms. The impact on energy use is analysed through computer simulations with the dynamic energy simulation program Derob-LTH while the impact on daylight quality is investigated through measurements in full-scale experimental office rooms and simulations with the program Radiance.
