Energy savings by integrating the daylighting availability in the electric lighting management contributes to the realization of ‘Green Building’. This paper provides a simulation and calculation of office building in North China with RADIANCE software on the basis of theoretical analysis, which focuses on the influence of Window-to-Wall Ratio (WWR), sill height, glazing transmittance and window shape on Lighting Savings (LS). The study finds out the relationship between those window parameters and LS. The results may be reference for  designers as daylighting is involved.
