AbstractThis paper presents the results of a pilot study to quantify the effect of daylight-linked lighting control systems on office building electrical lighting consumption. The study investigated the impact of various configurations of manually-operated venetian blinds on the performance of a commercial photo-controlled continuous dimming lighting control system. It was based on monitoring two side-by-side occupied offices over a one-year period to assess electric energy consumption and the space illumination as a function of blind slat angle and retraction area.
