AbstractA Canadian researcher has found a way to calculate the energy savings from tubular skylights, and a way to work out the optimum distance they should be spaced apart. Using Sydney weather data imported into SkyVision, a free software design tool, Canadian researcher Dr Aziz Laouadi found the combined system would use from 10% (in June) to 45% (in January) less electrical energy than an electric-only system. The average monthly saving would be 29%.
