Daylighting in Laboratories; Laboratories for the 21st Century: Best Practices (Brochure)

    Research output: NRELBrochure


    This best practices guide describes how designing a building to include daylighting can save energy and utility costs (especially energy costs for electric lighting) while improving productivity and morale among a building's occupants. Several examples are given of the effective use of daylighting in new laboratory buildings. The publication is one of an ongoing series for 'Laboratories for the21st Century,' a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy Federal Energy Management Program. It is intended for all those who plan, design, and construct public and private-sector laboratory buildings.
