As we can easily understand from the pictures I posted, the right position of the blinds might be outside (we only gain 21% of total amount of energy available) and the worst is inside (the radiation is already entered - 52%). The solution of the blinds between the two glass panels is a little bit controversial.
- they don't need to be cleaned (outside they get dirty easily)
- we can buy blinds and glass "all in one".
- The termal performances is not very good: if the color of the blind is dark, they will reflect a small part of it, re-irradiating part of the radiation absorbed.
- If we choose this system, we buy all the device already assembled: if some parts of the system get damaged, we must change everythig (as you can guess, it is not very suitable for big surfaces)

The simulation was run under Arup Software, called E+TA, the location is London and period I chose is July .
