The starting point of this study is to provide a non-exhaustive overview of relevant transparent advanced facade technologies available on the market and suited to Nordic climates. A corresponding literature review is carried out to assess the existing modelling capabilities in building performance simulation for each type of product, highlighting the main challenges associated with its modelling. Overall, most of the difficulties identified are linked to the inherent dynamicity of advanced facades, the interdependent physical domains they cover, the limitations of the software, and the skills necessary to recognize and implement the best-suited model among the multitude of options available.
