TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Electrochromic smart window eases the glare and heat by providing comforting tint (tunable optical states). Options between transparent state and tunable tint states provide additional dimension to light and temperature management. The widespread use of electrochromic fenestration could contribute 25% of reduction in energy consumption in buildings. The technology is attractive for green buildings, displays and automobiles industries.

TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

This technology features industrial scalable electrochromic smart windows that transit from transparent to fully tinted state within minutes via multiple intermediate tinted states. The level of tint can therefore be controlled based on the occupants’ comfort. The balance of natural light and visual connection to the outside world while reducing glare and solar energy heating can be customised with occupants’ preference.  The production of electrochromic smart windows can be based on industrial equipment commonly used by window manufacturers. A mobile app has been developed for easy control of electrochromic smart windows for individual preference.

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS

The electrochromic smart window technology can be applicable to green buildings and its occupant providing energy saving and thermal comfort. Scalable production process is suitable for window manufacturers to adopt.
