AbstractThis official IEA report is a deliverable of the IEA SHC Task 21 / IEA ECBCS Annex 29: Daylight in Buildings. The task focuses on daylighting systems and strategies which can be applied in newand existing buildings with high electricity saving potential such as offices, schools, commercialand institutional buildings. The daylighting performance of these strategies is tested in laboratoryfacilities, through modeling, and in real case study buildings. This report is a deliverable of theSubtask C research projects. The main objective of Subtask C, as stated in the ImplementingAgreement of IEA SHC Task 21 / IEA ECBCS Annex 29 is ?to improve the capability, accuracyand ease-of-use of daylighting design and analysis tools for building design practitioners. Thepractitioners will be able to predict the performance of different daylighting systems and controlstrategies and to evaluate the impact of the integration of daylighting in the overall building energyconcept by using these design tools?. Subtask C work included the development of the Adelinelighting software, along with the assessment of its capabilities and accuracy.
