Does anybody know how to define the optical properties of the window (trans., SHGC, etc.) based on the angle of incidence?

If you use WINDOW program from LBNL (, it will give you option to create EnergyPlus file (IDF is one of E+ file options), which will enable angle-dependent calculations in E+.
