Daylight & lighting
Daylight is important for the well-being of people. In buildings it conveys the relation to the outside space and is, in contrast to static artificial light lighting, much more dynamic and thus more stimulating. The new focus on energy efficiency and amenity value is creating greater demands on buildings. Well-planned lighting and daylight systems ensure a harmonious balance between the lighting level and solar shading while simultaneously contributing to a lower energy requirement. Innovative daylight and control systems help to maintain an adequate daylight supply during changing sky conditions, during heat periods or with overcast conditions.
The daylight-dependent control of electrical lighting and presence-dependent light switching are already becoming standard. The linking of facade control systems and electrical lighting brings further energy saving effects. Self-learning, adaptive or switchable systems can leverage additional comfort gains and energy efficiency effects, and offer each user the individually required lighting environment.
