When we design modern buildings, a key design consideration is the level of sunlight and heat it will experience. It affects the amount of energy required for of air-conditioning, the overall emissions produced by the design, the level of comfort of users and many other factors.

Solar is a collaborative design tool that analyses, in real time, a proposed building design, identifies how much sunlight it is likely to absorb, offers design options for shading and fa├žade design. It even predicts how much energy can be produced by incorporating solar panels on any surface of the envelope.
