The optical performance of redirecting daylight materials under given outdoor illumination conditions is characterized by mean of virtual goniophotometry, and results are expressed as light source equivalent distributions that can be then used as

Solar shading devices can significantly improve thermal comfort and reduce cooling loads and potential glare problems in highly glazed buildings.
Helena Bulow-Hube and Urban Lundh
The European Commission has expressed the wish to harmonize energy regulations in the building sector and at the same time has formulated goals for promoting the use of renewable energy sources.
M. Beerepoot
PASLINK is the grouping of 14 European research institutes involved in the performance assessment of the thermal and solar characteristics of building components under real climate conditions.

In this paper, we use the validation test cases initialized within the subtask C, "Daylight design tools", of IEA SHC Task 21, "Daylight in buildings" to assess the accuracy of a commercial lighting software, Lightscape 3.2.
F. Maamari and M. Fontoynont
The thermal performance of a building depends on a number of building design parameters. Development of ‘energy efficient building concepts’ therefore requires insight in the here mentioned interrelation.
Marrit Pel and Marinus van der Voorden
Advanced daylighting strategies and systems can considerably reduce a building’s electricity consumption and also significantly improve the quality of light in an indoor environment.
J. P. Barthel, A. Comblen, G. Flamant and C. Eugène
Together with the definition of innovative plant and envelope technological solutions for buildings, many simulation tools (models) have been developed to make the design choices easier.
A. De Salvia, R. Lollini, I. Meroni
A common architectural feature of curtain wall facades is constituted by a transparent double-glazing unit mounted in front of a recessed interior metal panel.

DayMedia and MulCom are multimedia teaching packages targeted at architects and building engineers, as well as students.

Various types of double façades can be distinguished. In earlier work a simple simulation model for the energy performance of double facades is developed. In this paper the problem of modelling a half-open sunshade between sheets is discussed.
Truus de Bruin, Regina Bokel, Ellen Granneman and Marinus van der Voorden
In order to improve the user acceptance of an automatic shading device controller, user wishes concerning the blind position are learned and integrated in the automatic controller through an innovative adaptation system developed with the use of G

In the framework of harmonisation of the Slovene legislation with the European, in 1995 the Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning of the Republic of Slovenia began with the preparation of new Slovene standards and regulations.

The operation of an outdoor test site requires very substantial efforts with respect to investments, maintenance, calibration and training staff.
E. Maldonado, M. Borges
In this paper we present a procedure to test software ability to describe daylight sources. The method will be applied to Lightscape release 3.2 [1].
S. Pezzana, F. Maamari, D. Dumortier, M. Fontoynont
This work is based on an extended research from a doctorate thesis developed in a partnership between Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) in Brazil and INSA of Lyon, Thermal Centre of Lyon, Building Physics Team (CETHIL/ETB) in France.

IQ-Test is a Thematic Network supported by the European Community under the EESD Programme.The objective of IQ-TEST is to further develop common quality procedures for the PASSYS/PASLINK test cell facilities that exist in 12 European countries.

In urban canyons reflected sunlight can play an important role in the illumination of buildings, particularly in orientations and during times of the day where sunlight is not incident on the windows.
L. Brotas and M. Wilson
In a building, energy consumption and user’s comfort are directly related to its thermal performance. In early stages of building design, architects do not have enough input data to perform precise calculations.
Eduardo B. P. Castro, Joseph Virgone, Leopoldo E. G. Bastos
Spectral radiative properties of panel glass and coatings are measured, like transmittance and reflectance. The coating influence on the panel behavior is presented.
