What is Sunlight Transport?
John Spacey, updated on July 26, 2016
Sunlight transport is a passive system that captures sunlight at a source such as a roof, focuses it, transports it by a medium such as fiber optic cables and defuses it into a room. It is typically used to get natural light into interior rooms and to reduce energy consumption. Sunlight transport is typically paired with adaptive lighting that dims when natural light is available.
