ABSTRACT
The article explains how emission glazing can let light in, but stop heat from pouring out. In Germany, Great Britain and Ireland, low emission glass also has to be used for all replacement windows. Solar control glass is another route to reducing energy use. Special coatings applied to the surface of the glass can reflect up to 75% of solar heat, white transmitting the majority of visible light. The result is a bright and cool interior environment, reducing the need for air-conditioning.
