In celebration of Earth Day, Research Frontiers reminds you that SPD-SmartGlass is contributing to improving the environment. Did you know…
Windows without smart glass account for as much as 30% of heat loss in a home.
The widespread use of smart glass will significantly support sustainability objectives in the U.S. and worldwide through lower energy costs, more optimal use of natural light, and the improved well-being of building occupants. (The Freedonia Group)
Airline’s fuel costs have risen sharply as oil prices climbed 75% in the past year. Weight-savings from SPD-Smart windows can help lower these fuel costs.
By 2025, the U.S. Department of Energy has established a goal of reducing the energy required to illuminate buildings by 50% compared to 2005 levels.
SPD Clean Technology can reduce energy consumption while at the same time improve the comfort level and connectedness with the outside environment for those in homes, buildings and vehicles.
Use of daylight harvesting systems in buildings can lead to energy savings of 35-60% or more.
Plastics parts – of particular interest to the aerospace and automotive industries – can reduce costs and increase operating efficiency because they are lightweight, durable and resist corrosion. Fuel-saving SPD technology can be used in plastic smart windows across many transportation vehicle industries.
