Engineers develop eco-friendly panels that switch from transparent to opaque
New ultra-thin coating responds to heat and cold
Berkeley Lab researchers make thermochromic windows with perovskite solar cell
Engineered quantum dots could bring down the cost of solar electricity
House and car windows that stay cool in the summer, warm in the winter
Discovery could lower cost and expand possibilities for building-integrated solar energy collection
Such smart windows are aimed at saving on cooling and heating bills for homes and businesses
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have designed a new material to make smart windows even smarter.
Film-based, multicavity insulating glass offers superior insulating performance, reduces noise and increases occupant comfort more effectively than low-e glass alone.
