Abstract  -  Making use of the solar source is key in highly energy efficient buildings both to limit thermal and lighting needs and to cover the residual demands by means of technologies exploiting a high share of renewable energy. However, this requires the careful design of the individual technologies and the planning of their integration into buildings as they may eventually result in complex systems to operate and maintain, and the thermal and visual comfort of the users may not be guaranteed. Moreover, different strategies can be competing against one another (e.g., glare control against minimization of space heating demand) and finding an optimal solution is not straightforward.
