During the last couple of years the electrochromic technology has gone from a futuristic dream to a commercially available technology, improving comfort and energy efficiency in buildings. European and American companies have made great technological progress and now product performance and durability meet the market requirements. Increased focus on intelligent buildings, energy savings, indoor comfort and sustainability has created an excellent opportunity, not only for manufacturers of electrochromic dynamic glass but for the whole glass industry as such. The market for electrochromic dynamic glass for windows, facades and roofs in buildings has now started its growth journey. Will it live up to the expectations?
The presentation will give an introduction to the electrochromic technology, -how it works and more importantly the sustainable benefits of improving energy savings and comfort in new and existing buildings. Future product development paths will be presented such as applications outside architecture.
