EWFA video demonstrates the energy efficiency capabilities of Window Film technology

In order to raise awareness on the capabilities and performance of Window Film technology, EWFA today releases a video explaining how Window Film contributes to recent European Union energy efficiency targets for new and existing buildings.    (Click here to watch the video).

The building sector in Europe accounts for 41% of Europe’s energy consumption, and relevant studies indicate that the deep renovation of Europe’s existing building stock can bring up to a 32% saving of the total primary energy used in Europe. Many building owners and occupants are unfamiliar with the different technologies and products available on the market, and their varying impact on the CO2 emissions of their properties.

Window Film is used for the upgrade and modernisation of existing windows, improving their energy efficiency as well as safety, insulation and aesthetics. Window Film significantly increases the energy performance of buildings through solar heat absorption and reduced heat loss. Furthermore, Window Film allows for natural light to enter the building while providing proper control of the negative effect of harsh glare and UV exposure. With this animated video, EWFA looks to raise awareness of this considerable potential for energy savings from installing Window Film technology in all retrofit operations for commercial as well as residential buildings.

Dave Cox, EWFA President stated: “Energy efficiency is the area where there is broadest consensus amongst all governments on the need for increased action in order to reach the European Union’s 2020 targets. The European Window Film industry stands ready to support Europe’s buildings sector in reaching these levels of efficiency. With this video we hope governments, media, building owners and general society will have a better understanding of Window Film as a cost effective solution to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings in Europe.”
