Window films: Low hanging fruit for efficiency gains

from Energy Manager Today

One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to drive energy efficiency in buildings is improving the efficiency of their windows. This is an area that is generating a lot of research and development. This week, The Energy Department's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy announced $31 million in funding for 14 projects in the SHIELD (Single-Pane Highly Insulating Efficient Lucid Design) program. The press release points out that single pane windows, which are common in industrial and commercial buildings, provide little insulation. Developing materials that can cut heat loss in half — the goal of the project — is preferable in many cases to costly replacement. more
