Dynamic Solar Shading in Sustainable Buildings

Never before has there been such a focus on buildings that work – for the occupants, the owners and the environment.

Natural light, fresh air, consistent temperatures and the best possible view to the outside are all important for healthy and happy occupants.Weather, sunlight and temperature however, are all dynamic forces that constantly change. Automated, or dynamic, solar shading solutions that respond to the changing environment, combined with the right glazing, can actively contribute to creating natural light and thermal and energy efficient environments. Somfy are the world-leading supplier of motorisation and control solutions.With over 20 years global experience Anders Hall joins us on his visit to Australia, to discuss the success factors of projects using dynamic solar shading. Participants of this webinar will benefit from a broad understanding of the benefits of dynamic solar shading with regard to health, wellbeing and productivity.

International experience, case studies and research into how solar shading can reduce energy consumption in buildings will be illustrated during the session.
