Energy Efficiency
Removal Of Non-Essential Lighting Or Daylighting

What Is It?

One way to make lighting redundant and non-essential is by implementing “daylighting” measures, whereby more natural light is let into an office or workspace through the installation of skylights, reflective surfaces, or other daylighting strategies.


Harvesting daylighting reduces energy needed for lighting and air conditioning and also reduces energy costs. Several studies have also shown that increased levels of daylighting improve worker morale and productivity and can reduce absenteeism.
