See below how Electrochromic Glass by SageGlass can contribute to LEED V4.0 criteria: Minimum energy performance
SageGlass glazing, when properly integrated into a building design, can generate substantial energy savings thanks to its dynamic properties, and it is a direct result of our focus on energy efficiency.
To reduce the environmental and economic harms of excessive energy use by achieving a minimum level of energy efficiency for the building and its systems.
Option 1 “Whole-building energy simulation”:
Demonstrate a 5% improvement (for new construction) in the proposed building performance rating compared with the baseline building performance rating (using ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1–2010 to make the simulation). A USGBC-approved equivalent standard for projects outside the U.S. may be used.
Option 2 “Prescriptive compliance”: ASHRAE 50% Advanced Energy Design Guide
Comply with the mandatory and prescriptive provisions of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1–2010, with errata (or a USGBC-approved equivalent standard for projects outside the U.S.).
Option 3 “Prescriptive compliance”: Advanced BuildingsTM Core PerformanceTM Guide
Comply with the mandatory and prescriptive provisions of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2010, with errata (or USGBC approved equivalent standard for projects outside the U.S.).
Read the detailed requirement for Minimum Energy Performance.
By controlling the amount of solar energy entering the building, it reduces air conditioning electricity demand during the hottest times of the day. With this solution, buildings use less energy (so cause less pollution) and cost less to operate. In many cases, they also cost less to build because smaller heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are required, and the mechanical solar control features such as blinds and sunshades are not needed.
