Innovative facade concepts are today more relevant than ever. The demand for natural ventilation in commercial buildings is increasing due to growing environmental consciousness while at the same time energy consumption for buildings has to be reduced. An advanced facade should allow for a comfortable indoor climate, sound protection and good lighting, thus minimising the demand for auxiliary energy input. Double skin facades (DSF) have become a major architectural element in office buildings over the last 15 years.

The basis for the energy scale will remain the same, with products graded from A to G – matched by a colour scale from dark green for the most energy efficient to red for the least. All advertising including energy-related performance or price will have to indicate these grades. In terms of public procurement, the Directive states Member States should endeavour to purchase the highest grade of energy-labelled products.

Information paper P160 of CENSE European Project. This standard presents a method for making economic calculations of the functioning of heating systems, using data from other systems that may influence the energy use of the heating system. This method can be used, in full or in part, for the following purposes: • to consider the economic feasibility of energy conservation options in buildings; • to compare different solutions of energy saving options in buildings (e.g. plant types, fuels);

The thermal and optical behavior of a fenestration system can be described with the following parameters: • Thermal transmittance coefficient or heat transfer coefficient (U-value), • Solar transmittance coefficient or solar heat gain coefficient (g value) - Shading coefficient (SC) • Visual transmittance ( v ). These parameters apply both for glazing and windows.
