A new daylighting and solar thermal product for flat-roofed commercial buildings is completing development this year and will soon be available commercially. By controlling the light output and harvesting the excess solar energy as high-grade thermal heat, much higher daylight autonomy levels are possible compared to conventional skylights with the benefit of a thermal resource stream. Initial results from module and system testing are showing that the new product is meeting expectations for performance and ease of installation.
