Design of ceramic-polymer optical composites for building energy efficiency: Infrared property control and transparent bulk thermal insulators

Conference Dates

November 10-14, 2019


Of ~$1 trillion total U.S. energy use, 15% is for heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and over 20% of this energy, 3.4% of total US energy, goes out the window through thermal losses, equivalent to $34 billion of energy waste annually. Materials design of windows, roofs and insulation is an opportunity for energy efficiency improvements, by optimizing solar absorption, transmission, infrared emission and thermal insulation. This presentation will discuss both static and dynamic/active approaches to improved energy efficiency in windows through materials design and performance improvements.
