Commercial buildings represent one of the largest single opportunities for energy conservation and solar energy use in the United States and developed countries. Yet, existing building energy conservation and renewable energy solutions, such as skylights and rooftop solar photo voltaic arrays, lack compelling economics to drive broad and rapid adoption.
MBC’s SkyLouver™ system is an architectural innovation designed to deliver increased levels of daylighting into commercial flat-roofed buildings while reducing building energy consumption for lighting, heating, and cooling by up to 50% in most climates. This is achieved using intelligent, louvered skylights that deliver precisely controlled illumination levels while making optimal use of the remaining energy for heating or cooling as needed. The productivity improvements and aesthetic enhancements that result from the high quality of daylight delivered by the SkyLouver system, combined with the substantial energy savings, offer very attractive economics for installation and ownership.
