SPD-SmartGlass – Contributing LEED (Leadership In Energy And Environmental Design) Credits For Green Building Projects

 In News

April 3, 2012 – Those interested in saving energy and in designing, building or operating environmentally-friendly structures will appreciate the potential LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits available when using SPD-SmartGlass™ in green building projects. SPD-SmartGlass allows you to instantly, and automatically or manually, control the tint of your glass, thereby controlling and managing heat, light and glare in real-time.
In its April 2012 newsletter, SmartGlass International, an authorized licensee of Research Frontiers’ patented SPD-SmartGlass technology, observes: “SPD-SmartGlass is significantly more energy efficient than static glazing, providing a comfortable interior for occupants with an uninterrupted view as the need for blinds/curtains is eliminated. SPD-SmartGlass provides a sustainable eco-friendly building interior whilst also enhancing the corporate image of the building.”
As noted in more detail in the newsletter, SPD-SmartGlass can contribute to LEED credits in areas including:
• Sustainable Sites: Light Pollution Reduction
• Energy and Atmosphere: Optimize Energy Performance
• Indoor Environmental Quality: Controllability of Systems – Thermal Comfort, Thermal Comfort – Design, Daylight and Views – Daylight
“Buildings are the largest source of energy consumption in the world, and energy lost through today’s inefficient windows accounts for 30% of the building heating and cooling energy consumed in the U.S.,” reports SmartGlass International. SPD-SmartGlass supports all dimensions of sustainability – energy efficiency, occupant well-being and environmental protection.
