IEA SHC Solar Academy: Webinar on Task 61 - Integrated Solutions for Daylighting and Electric Lighting (1)
This fourth webinar in the IEA SHC Solar Academy webinar series will introduce the work of IEA SHC Task 61 on solutions for daylighting and electric lighting.
Lighting accounts for approximately 19% of the global electric energy consumption. Research and development in the field of energy-efficient lighting techniques encompassing daylighting, electric lighting and lighting controls potentially can contribute significantly to reduce this demand. Nonetheless, growing economies, higher user demands for quality lighting and rebound effects as a result of low priced and more versatile electric lighting – “more for less” – lead to an absolute increase of the worldwide lighting energy consumption. More light is used, less consciously.
The lighting as well as the façade market have seen significant technological developments and strong growth in the past decade - where nevertheless both market sectors still act mainly completely independent of each other, leaving out big chances for better user-centered and at the same time efficient systems.
Research and developments in the field of energy efficient lighting techniques that integrates daylighting, electric lighting and lighting controls is thus needed. The ultimate goal is employing this integrated approach and bringing these techniques to the market which can reduce significantly worldwide electricity consumption and CO2 emissions. These activities will therefore be in line with several different governmental energy efficiency and sustainability targets.
The webinar will welcome the following presentations:
- Jan de Boer - Motivation and Introduction to Task 61
- Barbara Szybinska Matusiak - User requirements for lighting environments
- Marc Fontoynont - Technical Solutions for simplified maintenance, improved reliability, user-friendliness in design and application of systems
- David Geisler Moroder - Design support for practitioners – simulation workflows and daylight system characterization
- Werner Osterhaus + Niko Gentile - Instruments and methods for assessing integrative/circadian lighting systems in health environments and offices
The webinar will be moderated by Bärbel Epp of solrico - solar market research & international communication.
Q/A Session: The 90-minute webinar will include a 30 minutes Q/A session and a recording will be available online afterwards.
The webinar is organised by the Solar Academy of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Program and hosted by ISES, the International Solar Energy Society.
Special announcement - webinar re-run on 25 September 2020 at 6 AM GMT/UTC
ISES and the IEA SHC Solar Academy are happy to announce that this webinar will also take place on 25 September 2020 at 6 AM GMT/UTC to accommodate our global audience especially from Australia and Asia.

Presentation title: User requirements for lighting environments.
Marc is a Professor at the Danish Building Research Institute (SBI), Aalborg University Copenhagen. Convenor of CEN Standardization group TC 169-WG11 Daylight. He is also active in various innovative programs dealing with developing new lighting techniques, including reduction of energy use, higher human well-being, and developing techniques to facilitate decision-making by groups of stakeholders in the field of construction, design and city planning, with participants sharing VR environments on the internet.
Presentation Title: Technical Solutions for simplified maintenance, improved reliability, user-friendliness in design and application of systems.
David Geisler Moroder
David Geisler-Moroder studied at the University of Innsbruck, Austria where he achieved a master and a PhD degree in technical mathematics. Already in his diploma and doctoral thesis he worked on mathematical questions in lighting technology. Since 2010 he has been working as a project manager and head of the competence field daylight in the R&D department of Bartenbach. His main work and research areas include the development of simulation methods, the interface between daylighting and building physics, daylighting systems, and lighting technology principles.
Presentation Title: Design support for practitioners – simulation workflows and daylight system characterization.
Werner is an architect, lighting designer and Professor of Lighting Design Research at the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University in Denmark. Werner has been involved in daylighting research and design since he first started working with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Windows and Daylighting research group in 1987. Since 1994, he has been a full-time academic in architecture in the USA, New Zealand and Germany, and since 2009 in architectural engineering in Denmark. He focuses on lighting design, sustainable architecture and building environmental science.
Assistant professor at the Institute of Architecture and the Built Environment, Lund University, Sweden. In the past eight years, Niko has been working in the field of lighting and daylighting, mixing technical and observed-based evaluations. His research focuses on the role of the user in driving energy saving, targeting mainly at the role of lighting controls. Niko participated in the International Energy Agency (IEA) SHC Task 50 and he is currently leading Subtask D of IEA SHC Task 61 / EBC Annex 77 together with Prof Werner Osterhaus.
Presentation Title: Instruments and methods for assessing integrative/circadian lighting systems in health environments and offices.
