Lighting includes the use of both artificial light sources like lamps and light fixtures, as well as natural illumination by capturing daylight. Daylighting (using windows, skylights, or light shelves) is sometimes used as the main source of light during daytime in buildings.

Renewable energy—and solar energy in par­ticular—has a problem. Because it is subject to the vagaries of sunshine and wind for power generation, it is often not available when it is needed most. For those nighttime hours when the sun is not available and cloudy days when sunlight is minimal, provisions
