AEEE and CEPT University conducted this study with support from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The primary objective was to estimate the potential of reducing cooling demand through the use of high-performance glazing.

The additional objectives of this study were to:

  • Preliminary industry engagement to explore the feasibility and market-readiness for a mandatory window labelling program
  • Evaluate the existing policy options for high-performance glazing

The intended outcomes were two-fold:

  • To project national energy savings in 2030 from the use of HP windows glazing in the upcoming and retrofitted commercial building stock
  • Based on the research outcomes and the evaluation of the existing policy framework, recommend policy options and market transformation strategies, including a high-level roadmap to develop a window labelling programme, that would help achieve the energy savings potential from the adoption of HP windows glazing.
