 Daylighting research carried out by Prof Mardaljevic since the 1990s has resulted in significant real-world impact across a wide range of application areas from professional practice to international standards. Some of the key ones listed below are outlined in this short video. Daylighting research carried out by Prof Mardaljevic since the 1990s has resulted in significant real-world impact across a wide range of application areas from professional practice to international standards.

-In 2014 the UK Education Funding Agency (EFA) made CBDM a mandatory requirement for the evaluation of designs submitted for the Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP). School designs submitted to the PSBP must achieve certain '​target'​ criteria for the useful daylight illuminance metric (proposed by Prof Mardaljevic in 2005). This is believed to be the first major upgrade to mandatory daylight requirements since the introduction of the daylight factor more than half a century ago. The PSBP has a total value of over £10bn.+In 2014 the UK Education Funding Agency (EFA) made CBDM a mandatory requirement for the evaluation of designs submitted for the Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP).

 The UK adoption of CBDM in mandatory codes has led to a market transformation in both the skills base (numbers of CBDM practitioners) and the range of available software (developers responded very quickly to this new market opportunity). The UK adoption of CBDM in mandatory codes has led to a market transformation in both the skills base (numbers of CBDM practitioners) and the range of available software (developers responded very quickly to this new market opportunity).

-Since 2011 Prof Mardaljevic has served as 'UK Principal Expert'​ for European Committee for Standardisation CEN/TC 169 WG11 '​Daylight in Buildings'​. Throughout that time he led both the formulation and the drafting of the daylight part of the standard. In a major break with all previous standards, the methodology (which is normative) bases the targets (which are informative) on the provision of absolute levels of daylight illumination rather than simply relative levels (e.g. 2% daylight factor). ​ +Since 2011 Prof Mardaljevic has served as 'UK Principal Expert'​ for European Committee for Standardisation CEN/TC 169 WG11 '​Daylight in Buildings'​.

 +The first demonstration of urban irradiation mapping was the San Francisco VRML model ~1999. That pioneering study proved that it was possible to quantify the solar potential in large urban setting, whatever the complexity. It also showed how to link an image-based solution to GIS tools. A decade or so later, solar mapping linked to GIS became a valuable tool to aid the goal of improving urban sustainability.
