Abstract

Industries have developed different types of transparent materials and light control systems to improve the design and the operation of buildings to take full advantage of daylight. This paper analyses energy, thermal and visual aspects connected to the integration of electrochromic windows as a part of a light control system. Energy saving and environmental control optimizations for non-residential buildings are analyzed by the advanced simulation package Integrated ENergy Use Simulation (IENUS), that can integrate thermal and visual aspects. Different double-glazed electrochromic windows and light management strategies are taken up for Mediterranean climate using Typical Meteorological Years (TMY). © 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd.
