All Subtasks will provide material for common Task products and the agreed collaborations between subtasks, mainly inputs from ST B, ST C, ST D to ST A and inputs from ST A, ST B, ST C to ST D. The main results of this Task shall be: 

Subtask A: Low Carbon Lighting and Passive Solar: Scenarios, Strategies, Roadmaps

  • Survey on data sources, methods and regulations
  • Catalog of scenarios
  • Simple tool to rate LCA / GWP
  • Design guideline
  • Roadmap
  • Report “Low Carbon Lighting: Scenarios, Strategies and Roadmaps” with chapters from the projects A.1-A.4 each

Subtask B: Visual and non-visual requirements

  • Proposal for improved glare prediction
  • Proposal for improved rating system finished
  • A roadmap for the design of daylighting and electric light in the neighborhood context
  • Literature study as a journal article finished
  • Recommendations for measurement and assessment methods of nonvisual effects
  • Collective report from Subtask B with chapters from single work items B.1 to B.5. Information material collected in B.4 in a suitable format (report or short video).

Subtask C: Design support for practitioners (Tools, Standards, Guidelines)

  • Analysis of digitalization needs
  • Novel control concepts analyzed by means of SWOT analysis
  • BIM workflows analysed and end-to-end parameter workflow specified
  • Sources of available and missing data for (day-)lighting systems for BIM integration documented.
  • State-of-the-art of lighting simulation methods for non-visual quality criteria for integrative lighting solutions summarized
  • Potentials of VR for lighting design investigated and documented
  • Refactoring of Radiance core tools implemented
  • Roadmap for holistic LCA assessment in lighting design tools
  • Collective report from Subtask C with chapters from single work items C.1 to C.4.
  • White paper on current state-of-the-art lighting simulation software tools
  • for visual and non-visual performance evaluation.

Subtask D: Lab and field study performance tracking

  • Documented evaluation procedure(s) for the case studies
  • Documented case studies and lessons learned
  • Report on minimum requirements for energy and daylight in existing standards with regard to the impact of densification on visual comfort and well-being
  • Guideline on sufficient urban and building design and operation measures
  • Information material about the impacts of densification in a suitable format (report or short video)
  • A report about applications and case studies: “Low carbon daylighting and lighting solutions: practical applications”
  • Information campaign for and with representative entities of sunbelt countries.
