A Study of Daylight Modeling Approaches Applied in LEED

Across various versions of U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), the intent of the Daylight Credit has always been to connect building occupants with the outdoors and reduce the use of electrical lighting by introducing adequate daylight into the space.

The results of this research provides architects, engineers, and daylight designers with a comprehensive analysis of two common methods of daylight evaluation to better estimate daylight performance in their designed spaces.
