These can be used either internally or externally, causing redistribution of daylight (sunlight or skylight) to ceilings. The efficiency of Venetian blinds in terms of light redistribution is rather low and depends upon the blind section and its material (and the associated reflectance). Only the optimum orientation of these blinds can allow maximum reflection without preventing outward vision. Visual connection to the exterior environment is vital for human beings, providing access to quality daylight.

20/ft2 for retrofitting existing homes in certain California climates with cool roofs (PG&E, 2007; SCE, 2007). 11. 75. The low-sloped roof requirements of the PG&E/SCE programme are designed to promote the use of white roofs. 40) are designed to encourage the use of existing coolcoloured products (most of which lie in Tier 1) and to spur the development and sale of improved cool-coloured products (Tier 2). 20 ABER_CH_01 7/11/08 10:19 AM Page 29 Evolution of Cool-Roof Standards in the US 29 CONCLUSIONS Since the late 1990s, the quantification of energy savings offered by the use of cool roofs has led both ASHRAE and the state of California to add cool-roof credits and/or requirements to their energy efficiency standards for both residential and non-residential buildings.

Several US cities and states other than California have developed custom cool-roof provisions to their energy standards. Voluntary energy efficiency programmes, such as the US EPA Energy Star label, the LEED Green Building Rating System of the US Green Building Council and rebate programmes offered by California and its utilities, have established qualifications for cool roofs. 75 – they are more often too lax. 15. We have also found ambiguities and outright errors in several cool-roof standards.
