Designing buildings around harvesting sunlight offers select benefits, such as free interior lighting, passive heating, and diminished electrical consumption.

Properly implemented, strategic window placement and advanced daylighting techniques boost occupant comfort and significantly reduce lighting energy demand, which accounts for 35-50% of total commercial electrical energy use.

Join USGBC-ET and Kim Shinn PE, LEED Fellow, CxA, BEMP to explore the cutting-edge of fenestration area, positioning and transmittance, the quantitative value of daylight harvesting, and daylight harvesting requirements introduced in the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).
