Project

Montreal Trudeau International Airport Solar Shading and Lighting

Credits: Solar Buildings Research Network

The NSERC Solar Buildings Research Network (SBRN), in collaboration with the Aéroports de Montréal (AdM), implemented an innovative combined solar shading and lighting control project at the Montreal International Airport. This installation allows for the automatic control of interior motorized shades to serve the following purposes:

•Maintain interior visual comfort for travelers and airport staff

•Reduction of cooling loads resulting from excessive solar gains

•Reduction of electric lighting energy use and the corresponding cooling load when natural daylight is sufficient for lighting the space
