Energy Saving and CO2 Reduction Potential from Solar Shading System Shutters in the EU25 (ESCORP - EU25)

Share this Post:
Solar blinds and shutters contribute to reduce the energy demand of buildings in 2 ways: in wintertime, due to a supplementary thermal resistance in closed position, they reduce the heating energy demand; in summertime, by avoiding superfluous solar heat gains, they reduce the cooling energy demand. The energy demand reduction and the corresponding CO2 reduction were quantified using building numerical simulations for different buildings and climates.
