Shading and Climate Change

20th of March this year is the Vernal equinox, accepted as the first day of Spring. On 21.03.2023, ES-SO launch the first ever Global Shading Day.

ES-SO is a non-profit organisation that aims to promote the positive impact of solar shading on indoor climate management, thereby supporting the EU’s ambitious energy-efficiency goals.

The aim of Global Shading Day is to make the general public (and policy makers) aware of the human, ecological and economic benefits of solar shading.

The impact of increasing numbers of heatwaves hasn’t always immediately translated to the North of the UK - unless you have a south-facing aspect, and then you’ve understood for years.

Last years heat waves in June, July and August changed that.

Simply put, heatwaves are increasingly common, and heat-related deaths are increasing.

The right solar shading at the right window/ door can help you control heat gain, light ingress, and help you maintain a comfortable space in which to live and/ or work, and also reduce the need for air-conditioning and articial light. Human. Cological. Economic.
