Course Overview

The use of natural sunlight, known as daylighting, to illuminate a building can save energy, reduce operating costs, create visual appeal, and enhance occupant health and productivity.
The U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) rating system encourages the use of daylighting to achieve high performance buildings.
This course provides an update on emerging toplight daylighting technologies that are available in commercial applications, and the impact the latest energy and building codes have on daylighting design.
