Here`s how future offices will be lit
Washington: Researchers are planning to naturally illuminate windowless work spaces deep inside office buildings by employing tiny, electrofluidic cells and a series of open-air "ducts."
This new technology is called SmartLight, and it`s the result of an interdisciplinary research collaboration between University of Cincinnati`s Anton Harfmann and Jason Heikenfeld.
Harfmann, an associate professor in UC`s School of Architecture and Interior Design, said that this would change the equation for energy, asserting that it would change the way buildings are designed and renovated.
He said that it would change the way energy is used.
Harfmann said that with SmartLight the sunlight channeled through the system stays, and is used, in its original form.
This method is far more efficient than converting light into electricity then back into light and would be far more sustainable than generating electric light by burning fossil fuels or releasing nuclear energy.
