Hi, sunlight is the best source of light and energy. So to use effectively, the placing of windows and other openings and reflective surfaces matters a lot.
As a civil engineer, it’s our aim to maximize the comfort of the user and reduce the energy consumption for saving electricity.
The design of the building should be like this the rays of sunlight it will be scattered from the wall and reflect and cover a maximum area of the house. There will be no direct sunlight on polar sites of the walls that are north facing and south-facing. Providing large Windows is a good option to maximize the use of natural sources of light.
In the present scenario, translucent concrete is been used as concrete which transfers the light in various commercial buildings to reduce the use of artificial electricity. This is a great gift from nanotechnology.
the position of lights inside the room must be at the middle of the wall and not at the corners so that lights spread 180 degrees.
Ways to increase the light intensity within the Building:
Here, I am sharing with you some parameters through which we can increase the light intensity within the building, have a look;
