Smart solar shading

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) stipulates that new construction projects must be built in an energy-efficient manner from 2020 (nearly zero-energy buildings). Sun protection plays an important role in improving the energy efficiency and daylight management of existing buildings and optimising the energy-efficient design of new buildings.
