A prize at the eAward 2017
At the end of February Bartenbach GmbH and its partners Zumtobel Lighting and the University of Innsbruck received a business award at the eAward 2017. The project DALEC - Light and Thermal Building Evaluation Tool was honoured in the category Industry and Trade.
Information about a building's energy needs is important for economic planning long before construction begins. This research project developed an analysis for holistic light planning that takes factors such as daylight and artificial light into account. Using this tool, the effects these factors will have on heating and cooling requirements can be easily computed early in the design phase. These opportunities are a novelty. The jury honoured DALEC, because it eases an holistic design and no comparable tool is available at the market.
