Electronically tintable glass: A project showcase

We live in a dynamic environment, but until now our building envelopes have been static in nature – unable to effectively control the flow of the sun’s light and heat into buildings from hour to hour and from season to season. Electronically tintable glass provides the means to develop a dynamic façade with variable visible light transmission and solar heat gain coefficient, which saves cooling and lighting energy, and solves problems of excessive solar heat gain, glare, fading and the need for unsightly blinds. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) states that their goal of a zero energy building in 2030 cannot be achieved without the use of dynamic glazing. Electronically tintable glass is now commercially available and is being actively specified and installed in building envelopes.

This session will briefly review dynamic electrochromic glass performance characteristics and its benefits. The presentation will then focus on a number of diverse case studies to demonstrate the application of electrochromic glass in different building types and glazing applications to achieve different objectives such as glare control, heat control, daylighting, occupant comfort and to facilitate sustainable design. A discussion of installation will also be included.

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  •  Analyze the impact of traditional solar control solutions, their associated energy penalty and contrast with the use of dynamic glazing;
  • Explain the energy and environmental benefits of electrochromic glass and discuss key control strategies for maximum energy conservation;
  • Examine the human factors' benefit with electrochromics and discuss how durability improves sustainability; and
  • Understand key aspects of design for incorporating and specifying electrochromic glass to achieve maximum performance and potential contribution to LEED points.
