Natural light may be introduced through toplighting (skylights, clerestories) or sidelighting (windows).
Effective daylighting solutions consisting of toplighting and side-lighting--or a combination of both--should not only optimize energy savings, but also provide benefits that clients will find compelling in tandem with the design criteria.
Optimal Daylight Factor for Energy Efficient Toplighting System (QC-06-058)
This study examines the impacts of aperture size for four combinations of toplighting strategies and glazing types on the total yearly energy loads for a prototypical open office space in four climates.
The film subtly endorses this view, representing Stella as most attractive and sympathetic when at her most natural; specifically in moments of maternal suffering like the train scene and the final street scene, where soft focus and subtle toplighting make her apparently makeup-free face radiant and light up her frizzy hair like a halo.
Changes to lighting standards include improvements to daylighting and daylighting controls, space-by-space lighting power density limits, thresholds for toplighting and revised controls requirements and format.

Lighting: Improvements to daylighting and associated controls, space-by-space lighting power density limits, toplighting thresholds, and revised requirements and format for controls.
The design of a toplight system needs to take into consideration different toplighting types, including aperture size and orientation, electric lighting control, and, most importantly, the local climate.
2] and for toplighting when skylights are required.
For example, south-facing roof monitors, a toplighting solution with vertical glazing that offers more shade in the summer, are a great match for gyms and cafeterias because these spaces tend to have shallow or no roof cavities and fewer ductwork conflicts.
2) Some building owners, researchers, and toplighting practitioners believe that daylighting may provide other benefits, e.
