AbstractThis study was intended to develop a systematic evaluation of real daylight-linked system performance in occupied spaces. It included lighting energy savings as a function of movable manual and automated shading devices, and the effect of blind angle and retraction area on the energy consumption and the space illumination. It evaluated: 1) the lighting energy savings from daylighting in four individual daylit office spaces equipped with two types of commercial daylight-linked lighting systems: automatic on/off and continuous dimming; and, 2) the impact of two types of movable shading devices, manually-operated and photocontrolled venetian blinds, on the performance of the daylight-linked lighting systems.
