“Passive shading can significantly reduce energy costs. Educating the industry is the first step towards ensuring dynamic shading products deliver that benefit for the future of our planet. The science, the applications of that science and the use of knowledge all support the correct products being installed.”

Dave Bush, Co-Founder

Who We Are

Retail solar shading companies have direct contact with consumers searching for the right smart solar shading solution in their homes. To explain in an effective way the benefits of Smart Solar Shading a training program has been designed based on the residential subdivision of the Smart Solar Shading campaign website.

Participants having followed this course conclude with a test receive a certificate issued by ES-SO in collaboration with its national member association.

Who We Are

Companies manufacturing Smart Solar Shading and/or doing advanced projects directly for the market need to have their staff trained with a deeper insight in the added value of the different Smart Solar Shading solutions and their interaction with other technologies such as glass and HVAC in buildings. Experts have to come up with the best solution for a given project and are able to demonstrate the Smart Solar Shading benefits in building modelling.

The ES-SO Smart Solar Shading expert level entails two full days of training courses. Trainees with successful completion of the final written exam receive the ES-SO Smart Solar Shading expert certificate in collaboration with the national member association.
