The Harvard University Faculty of Arts & Sciences conducted a study comparing the efficacy of energy savings between intelligent View Dynamic Glass and standard glazed windows.
- View Dynamic Glass reduced window surface temperature by 15-20 degrees and counter surface temperature by 10 degrees compared to baseline low e
- In test results during AC off condition, VDG kept room 3 degrees cooler
- In test results during AC on, VDG reduced cooling demand by 10-15%
- VDG significantly reduce glare issues observed in space
This study was led by Quentin Gilly, Senior Coordinator with the Office for sustainability, with financial support from the Faculty of Arts & Sciences and View Dynamic Glass. Christopher Bitzas of Siemens was the primary author of this document, and played a crucial support role for the project.
Additional support came from Gary Goodwin, building manager of Harvard Biological Laboratories, and Joe Houlihan of Siemens.
