IEA SHC Solar Academy: Integrated Solutions for Daylighting and Electric Lighting - Task 61

September 24, 2020 / 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm  (GMT/UTC)

September 25, 2020 / 6:00 am to 7:30 am  (GMT/UTC)

This IEA SHC Solar Academy webinar will provide a brief introduction to SHC Task 61 / EBC Annex 77 on Integrated Solutions for Daylighting and Electric Lighting. Participants in this project are working to create and develop strategies combining daylighting and appropriate lighting control systems to lead to:

  • very high energy-efficient lighting schemes, and
  • solutions offering the best lighting conditions for building occupants
