Smart windows create energy savings options

According to Eco-Business, smart glass windows are about 70 percent more energy efficient during the summer season and 45 percent more efficient in the winter, reducing energy spending by approximately 25 percent.

Buildings account for almost 40 percent of all energy consumption in the United States, says the US Department of Energy.That means buildings are spending more than 400 billion dollars a year on units of energy. Switching to smart windows could make a huge impact on the energy bills of today’s biggest buildings. If efficiency could improve by 20 percent by 2020, there could be savings of more than $40 billion.


“Windows are a key component to any building’s design, so it’s only fitting that they are also an essential part of new strategies to improve energy efficiency.”
