The present work aims to experimentally analyze daylighting performances of the LSC-Smart Window developed by a joint R&D collaboration project between Eni (the largest Italian integrated energy company) and the Politecnico di Milano. The LSC-Smart Window, designed with the aim of enhancing the use of luminescent solar concentrators in the building sector, will be analyzed in an array of different configurations, realized with LSCs of different colors (specifically: red, orange and yellow) and compared to neutral PMMA plates. Our Smart Window represents an active element in the energy performance of a building, providing a multifunctional contribution in terms of energy saving through dynamic solar control and renewable energy production. A prototype of the Smart Window has been realized and installed in one of Eni's headquarter buildings for its accurate performance analysis.

Abstract

The present work aims to experimentally analyze daylighting performances of the LSC-Smart Window developed by a joint R&D collaboration project between Eni (the largest Italian integrated energy company) and the Politecnico di Milano. The LSC-Smart Window, designed with the aim of enhancing the use of luminescent solar concentrators in the building sector, will be analyzed in an array of different configurations, realized with LSCs of different colors (specifically: red, orange and yellow) and compared to neutral PMMA plates. Our Smart Window represents an active element in the energy performance of a building, providing a multifunctional contribution in terms of energy saving through dynamic solar control and renewable energy production. A prototype of the Smart Window has been realized and installed in one of Eni's headquarter buildings for its accurate performance analysis.
