New Adaptable Smart Window Coating Could Help Heat or Cool a Home and Save Energy.
Researchers at the University of Oxford have collaborated with industry experts to develop an adaptable smart window technology that could reduce the energy usage of an average home by up to a third.

The new glass has a spectrally tuneable low-emissivity coating that uses a phase change material to control the amount of heat that comes into the room from the window, without affecting the quality of the light. The thermal energy from the sun's infrared rays is absorbed by the glass and re-emitted as heat – either used to warm the room using transparent electrical heaters in the glass substrate or reflected away to cool the room.
