In recent years, much of the debate on sustainable architecture has focused on energy, CO2 emissions and the efficient use of material resources. These are all vitally important issues, but they are only three of a whole spectrum of issues affecting human life in the indoor environment.
“With the Basic Book on Daylight, Energy and Indoor Climate (DEIC), we aim to share our insight and knowledge by providing specific advice and concrete documentation on the effects and benefits of daylight and a good indoor climate in new and renovated buildings,” says Peter Foldbjerg.
The DEIC Basic Book provides information and recommendations, tools, metrics and codes for topics like daylighting, ventilation, thermal comfort, acoustics, energy and environment.
The handbook is updated and extended every year and available as a free app in the App Store.
In continuation of the DEIC Basic Book, we also provide visualization tools for designing with daylight and fresh air:
- The Daylight Visualizer for evaluating daylight conditions in buildings
- The Energy and Indoor Climate Visualizer for evaluating energy performance, thermal comfort, natural ventilation and indoor air quality in buildings.
