Goals:
► Energy savings in buildings and improvement of indoor environment quality and health through:
– Advanced integrated day- and electric lighting systems based on non-imaging optics
– Optimal and adaptive building control
► Optimisation of solar energy conversion systems through nanotechnology and architectural integration
► Smart management of cities thanks to modelling and simulation of complex urban systems
(energy flows, solar potential and other sustainability related factors)
