Advances in materials science and technology are leading to better buildings and transportation with improved energy efficiency and indoor conditions. A main focus is on improving windows and glass facades for enhanced comfort, privacy and sustainability. Current practices often lead to huge energy expenditures related to excessive inflow or outflow of energy which need to be balanced by energy-intensive cooling or heating.
Smart/switchable/dynamic glass or smart windows are increasingly utilized for thermal management, energy efficiency, and privacy applications that by modulating light transmittance when voltage, light, or heat is applied.
These technologies allow for the state of the glass to switch from transparent to translucent, or vice versa. This transition can occur passively or actively depending upon the device technology. There are three main types of technologies used in commercially available smart glasses:
The smart glass and windows market is growing fast, and has been installed in the commercial aircraft, automobiles and corporate buildings of companies such as Google, Disney, Merck, eBay, Microsoft, Progressive, IBM, Fox News etc. Producers have raised over $1 billion in funding over the last few years and the technology is gaining wider commercial traction, driven by demands for privacy, adaptability, information, improved safety, energy savings and living comfort. Despite a rise in market adoption, cost and scalability still remain general challenges for the smart glass industry
Commercial buildings are the main current market for smart glass, but is also being increasingly adopted in residential.
