Research Frontiers to Present Benefits of Smart Glass at US DOE-Sponsored Event at the National Building Museum
Gregory M. Sottile, Ph.D., Research Frontiers’ Director of Market Development, will give a presentation entitled “Advancing Sustainability and Security Goals Using Architectural Smart Glass” at the National Building Museum in Washington D.C. on January 25, 2011 at 12:30PM.
Dr. Sottile’s presentation will summarize typical energy use in United States buildings, describe the features of architectural smart glass, and discuss how architectural smart glass can advance sustainability and security goals in buildings.
The presentation is part of the National Building Museum series entitled “Buildings in the 21st Century: Lectures on Sustainable Design and Energy-Efficient Building Technologies.” This series features new technologies and construction techniques, and has been organized to increase the public’s awareness of the need for environmentally sensitive architectural design.
The United States Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is the sponsor of this series. The event is free and registration is required. Architects can receive one AIA Continuing Education System learning unit for attending Dr. Sottile’s lecture. Additional information is available from the National Building Museum website.
SPD-Smart products are the world’s fastest-switching variably tintable dynamic glazing technology. It is the only dimmable window technology that gives users the ability to instantly, precisely and uniformly control the level of shading to any point between very dark and clear. This provides exceptional control over incoming solar energy while also adding to user comfort and protecting interiors. Available in both glass and lightweight polycarbonate substrates, SPD-Smart products – windows, skylights, doors, partitions, sunroofs, roof systems and more – are laminated glazings that offer a distinctive combination of sustainability and security, can be controlled manually or automatically, and are available in custom sizes and fabrications for new construction, replacement and retrofit projects.
