I am working on energy analysis of building wall, roof , glass materials using EnergyPlus. For which I need thermal, solar and visible absorptance values of some common building materials. If anyone knows about these, kindly share or suggest any link.

The ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals 2017 Chapter 18 has information on absorptance.
