Goals
Evaluate the contribution of solar protection devices to energy p gy savings

1. Stakes 2. Presentation 3. Questions

Quantify the energy savings possibly made by the installation of textile solar protection devices Improve the consideration of thermal and visual performances of products Inform the industry (installers et manufacturers) and prescribers (building designers, architects, )

Comparison of energy needs of a standard office building equipped with textile solar protection devices to the same office without blinds.

Principle

9000 calculations made

Action on the position of the blind, artificial lighting, heating and cooling Results

Textinergie gives two different levels of results: Simplified results: percentage of energy saving associated with air-conditioning and other installations (air-conditioning + heating + artificial lighting), Detailed results: calculated temperature (C); energy needs (kWh), average position of the blind, percentage of energy saving for each unit (air-conditioning, heating and lighting) and average level of natural light (lux).
