Energy conservation has become a critical component in building design. In this course you will learn about the energy flow in the US and consumption of modern buildings. You will also gain a better understanding of the technical properties of shading solutions and discover how automated shading systems contribute to daylighting and daylight harvesting.
Understand the energy flow in the United States and the energy consumption of modern buildings
Recognize energy divisions within buildings that can be made more efficient
Define day lighting and daylight harvesting and understand the best-practice methods for executing both by reviewing applications
Explain the benefits of automated shades systems and interior window treatments by way of solar properties of shades
