ES-SDA: validated shading data for new build and renovation

Share this Post:

Solar shading has moved from a building component to a smart solar management concept for NZEB or renovated buildings (http://es-so.com/new/314-es-so-position-paper-2015). Although shading is a mature building technology in Europe it is not adequately recognised for its energy saving properties. The ES-SDA (European Solar Shading Products Properties Database) was set up to provide a reference list of independently verified and validated solar shading materials, to ensure correct specification and application in all types of buildings.
