Abstract: This paper seeks to illustrate the challenges of integrating rigorous daylight and electric lighting simulation data with whole-building energy models, and defends the need for such integration in order to achieve aggressive energy savings in building designs. Through a case study example, we examine the ways daylighting-and daylighting simulation-drove the design of a large net-zero energy project.
