A new daylight standard

This paper describes a proposal for a daylight standard for CEN countries. It is now widely accepted in the research community, and increasingly so amongst practitioners, that the standards/guidelines for daylight in buildings are in need of upgrading. The essence of the proposal is that the `target' for daylight provision should be founded on the availability of daylight as determined from climate. The method, founded on cumulative di use illuminance curves, could be introduced relatively swiftly since it requires only modest enhancement of existing daylight prediction tools.
