Integration of daylighting technologies in demand side management programmes. Estimation of the energetical and peak load potential
Final Report. SAVE Project No. XVII/4.1031/S/94-138
The central goal of this project within the SAVE programme is to obtain a reliable estimate of how the use of daylighting technologies could contribute to a reduction of total energy use in buildings, changes in the profile of peak electric loads and environmental effects. The use of daylighting controls coupled with energy efficient lighting and novel daylighting technologies shows potential in reducing electricity consumption in buildings and providing better thermal and visual comfort for the occupants. In the long term cost benefits are projected due to lower energy bills and in some cases potentially lower capital costs due to the smaller installed capacity required for the heating and cooling system.
