[Bldg-sim] question about DGI calculation

Hi Michaela!

As long as you are looking into radiation, you can stay with Radiance 
(just assign the wavelength ranges as needed to the - by default three - 
channels). If you need to handle other, non-radiative energy transfers, 
one option is to use ESP-r. This tool is a general building simulation 
software, with an integrated interface to Radiance for daylighting 

Cheers, Lars.
