Industries in these last years have developed and produced different types of transparent materials and light control systems to improve the design and the operation of buildings to take full advantage of the energy saving potential coming from daylight. Building energy demand assessment requires an integrated approach of the visual and thermal management, that is realized both by the automatic control systems and by the occupants which can override control systems to suit their own comfort requirements. This paper analyses the HVAC cooling design peak and the energy demand connected to the use of advanced glazing materials in conjunction with light control systems for a typical office room in Mediterranean climate. The approach is based on an hourly simulation program IENUS (Integrated ENergy Use Simulation), that integrates environment visual and thermal aspects. IENUS implements thermal aspects by the transfer function method for a Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) and visual aspects by the computer package Super lite. Heat extraction peak and seasonal energy consumption are analyzed for different glazing systems, daylight control strategies with and without occupants interaction.
