Dear all,

I am intending to do a parametric daylighting study for office rooms and 
I am thinking about using the detailed Energy Plus calculation method, 
because I am using E+ for thermal simulations anyway.
Does anybody know if or in how far the detailed EnergyPlus Daylighting 
calculation method is validated? Is there a detailed description of the 
validation and the calculation method available somewhere?

Thank you in advance,

best regards,

Astrid Roetzel
