SageGlass® electronically tintable dynamic glass will serve as the model window technology in a new research and demonstration project for energy-efficient building design at the Greater Philadelphia Innovation Cluster (GPIC) for Energy-Efficient Buildings.
GPIC is one of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Innovation Hubs established to accelerate national energy independence and green job creation.  SAGE’s SageGlass will be part of a research and demonstration project at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, intended to showcase and test the most advanced energy-efficient technologies, methods and policies.
The SageGlass project is one of seven initial Opportunity Research Fund grants totalling USD 1.3 million awarded by GPIC to explore new integrated window and lighting systems, among other building design objectives. SAGE competed for the grant in conjunction with its strategic partner, Saint-Gobain, and Penn State. The partners were awarded USD 200,000 for the winning proposal.
GPIC selected SageGlass technology to explore the energy savings and occupant comfort that can be achieved through the use of electrochromic glazing in buildings exposed to significant direct sunlight. SageGlass tints or untints at the push of a button to modulate visible light, heat gain and glare, while letting building occupants enjoy natural light and outdoor views. By regulating solar heat gain, it reduces energy consumption in buildings by up to 20%, HVAC requirements as much as 30% and lighting ene...
