Most heat loss from within the interiors of an architectural structure is through glass windows and doors than through other components. Thus, finding ways to make glass in windows and doors more thermally insulating is important to improve the energy efficiency of a building. One of the techniques usually applied is to combine two window construction procedures — vacuum glazing and electrochromic glazing. Doing this ensures improved thermal comfort while limiting the use of auxiliary space heating and artificial light. This guarantees very low heat loss and variable light transmission, and also controls glare from day lighting.
Electrochromic vacuum glass is more thermally insulating than a standard double pane window and is comparable to a good triple pane window. Windows made from Electrochromic vacuum glass improve the energy efficiency of buildings while keeping occupants thermally comfortable.
