Abstract


The object of the present writing is to shed light on the benefits and feasibility of daylighting  buildings in the European countries. The main focus of the study will be to quantify economically the benefits of daylighting approaches during the design stage, i.e. calculation of payback periods for diverse daylighting improvements while in design stage. In order to do so a climatic study of representative cities in Europe is undertaken for each different climate.

The LENI calculation will be used to estimate the benefits of Daylight in terns of the energy savings for lighting.

Different models complying with regulations in UK (Part L 2014) will be tested at different locations in Europe.
