Abstract: In this paper, the effect of the windows shading systems both on visual and thermal comfort and on the total building energy needs (for heating, cooling and artificial lighting) has been analysed. An open-space office module with different window characteristics has been simulated with EnergyPlus 7.1, controlling the internal conditions with appropriate comfort setpoints. Different window distributions (on a single fa
