What is Global Shading Day?
Debuting on Tuesday 21st March 2023, Global Shading Day was created by ES-SO to inform the public and policy makers of the numerous benefits of solar shading.
What are the Benefits of Solar Shading?
With climate change causing new extremes in temperatures and heatwaves becoming more commonplace. heat-related health issues on the rise. Demand for air conditioning and fans during the warmer months is also increasing as a result of rising temperatures. Air conditioning is not only a known contributor to CO2 emissions and greenhouse gases, but it is also especially demanding financially.
Effective, adjustable shading solutions can significantly reduce the health implications of high temperatures, as well as the impact of air conditioning on the environment and economy. Homes and commercial buildings will benefit from lower temperatures, meaning its occupants will also be less likely to overheat and become prone to heat-related illness.
