Smart Buildings for ME SustainabilityDevelopers have a duty of care to ensure buildings minimise energy consumption once they are operational.They need to recognise the importance of controlling energy usage and energy costs within a building in response to the escalating energy prices and the ‘green’ movement to reduce carbon emissions.
Smart Privacy Glass Improves Productivity
86% of productivity problems reside in the work environment of organizations with 73% of office workers surveyed stating natural daylight was extremely important. LC SmartGlass provides simple, instantaneous and reversible states of transparency with minimal alteration of light level making it an ideal solution for office interiors where ample lighting is fundamental.
SmartGlass Versus Blinds
Smart Glass windows offer a huge environmental benefit. In its “off” state, SPD SmartGlass reflects 98% of light dramatically reducing the need for air-conditioning (both the huge cost of installing it and the day-to-day cost of running it). Since smart glass is electronically operated, it can be easily controlled using a smart control system or a sunlight sensor, whether there are people inside the building or not.
