In the context of the review of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive-EPBD (2010/31/EU), European Aluminium invites you to have a look at the animation explaining how to assess the thermal performance of windows.   Windows are different from other construction products: their performance cannot be reduced to insulation properties, as their solar gains and ventilative cooling matter as well.   Finally, the façade orientation, climate condition and window size define which properties matter the most.

Around half of Europe’s buildings were built before 1975, in an era when energy efficiency, CO2 emissions and energy consumption were not a priority. Now a strong need arises to transform the most energy demanding buildings into energy efficient ones. Insights will be shared during a workshop held at the Warsaw Build Expo.
