2. THE ES-SO ACADEMY
Smart Solar Shading companies, being a member of their national ES-SO member association, have an understanding of the benefits of the solutions they put on the market as explained in the Smart Solar Shading campaign website. As from 2018 the ES-SO Academy offers training programs for their staff to become either smart solar shading advisor or smart solar shading expert.

3. ES-SDA, THE EUROPEAN SOLAR SHADING DATABASE
es sdaES-SDA stands for the European Solar Shading Database which has been developed since 2016 by ES-SO. ES-SDA is a database with validated and peer reviewed performance shading data meeting the European funded Qualicheck Project criteria. It has become a best practice for the building industry on ensuring data is accurate, verified and robust. Architects and engineers by using shading data in ES-SDA for building modelling get an accurate calculation of the benefits of solar shading. See also ES-SO ESBO (internal link)

4. ES-SO ESBO: RELIABLE, ACCURATE AND EASY SIMULATION WITH ESBO (EARLY STAGE BUILDING OPTIMIZATION)
ES SO ESBO 1

In most countries cost of energy is increasing. More and more new buildings are overheating and the use of energy to cool the indoor environment is increasing dramatically. Inaccurate modelling is a major cause of overheating with detrimental effects on people ’s comfort, health and well-being. ESBO is the first simulation software fully endorsed by ES-SO and based on the calculation engine in IDA ICE - the market leading tool for simulation of energy and indoor climate in Northern Europe. With ES-SO ESBO the use of dynamic solar shading can be simulated to ISO Standards.

The program is available in two versions: ES-SO ESBO Light, which is FREE to download and use, or ES-SO ESBO which is the full version of the software and comes at cost.
