At the Division of Energy and Building Design, we have two main laboratories; the Energy and Building Design Lab and the Solar Simulator.

In our full-scale Energy and Building Design laboratory with south-facing rooms towards the outdoor climate, we can determine the solar transmittance of various glazing and solar shading systems, as well as measuring the resulting indoor temperature and the daylight distribution in office-like looking test rooms.

To evaluate solar collector components and whole solar systems, the building has a roof platform where solar collectors can be placed. They are then connected to an advanced HVAC sub-central inside the laboratory.

In our unique Solar Simulator with parallell light, we can perform measurements of for example the solar transmittance of shading devices and the efficiency of solar panels.
