low energy windows

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Within the scope of LaWin (LARGE AREA FLUIDIC WINDOWS), a Horizon 2020 project, an innovative material solution will be developed for efficient solar energy and ambient heat harvesting through an active building envelope. This uses large-area microfluid devices, which are implemented in windows and facades.   As a key feature, the LaWin devices are designed for compatibility with existing process chains in window and facade manufacture such as used in e.g. triple glazing.     Expected impacts:

The impact of Windows on the energy performance of buildings is increased with the reduction of the energy demand. In the past windows influenced only 20-30% the energy demand of buildings but in low energy buildings windows have already an influence of more than 50% to the energy needs. With the upcoming net zero energy buildings the influence will raise above 80%.
