I've never seen or heard of such a thing, but it seems that it might work much the same as one on the exterior. The historical building folk think it's a bad idea to add these on the exterior of a building that never had shading elements - and that's one of my modeling projects, so I'm brainstorming for energy saving ideas.

If you think it will work, I can't think how to model it (in EnergyPlus), so I'd love some ideas about how to do that.

THe input output Reference handbook can be useful. This is described under 1.13.10 DaylightingDevice:Shelf.

And it seems that yes, you can.
