The essential role of integrated daylighting and solar design in the quest for zero-energy carbon-neutral housing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Case studies of two recent zero-energy, carbon-neutral prototype houses - the Lighthouse in Watford, England, and the SOLTAG Energy Housing in Hørsholm, Denmark - reveal that the integration of daylighting and solar strategies is central to meeting performance standards for net zeroenergy and carbon-neutrality as well as high quality design. The paper considers how daylighting is integrated with solar strategies, mechanical and renewable energy systems, and high-performance envelope design in each house.
