September 25, 2020 / 06:00 to 07:30 (Am - GMT/UTC)

The webinar was held live on September 24th and then rebroadcast on September 25th with a live Q/A. Both recordings posted below are of the same webinar, but the Q&A sessions are different.

This IEA SHC Solar Academy webinar provided a brief introduction to the IEA-SHC Task 61 / Annex 77 entitled: Integrated Solutions for Daylighting and Electric Lighting, as well as, input from lighting experts in a number of areas. Participants of Task 61 / Annex 77 are working to create and develop strategies combining daylighting and appropriate lighting control systems to lead to:

  • very high energy-efficient lighting schemes, and
  • solutions offering the best lighting conditions for human being.
