Free Webinar Looks at Energy-Efficient Window Upgrades
A free Web seminar on window upgrades to help create energy efficiency at all prince points is being offered on Tuesday, June 11, by the Alliance to Save Energy.
“Window Energy Efficiency: Beyond Business as Usual,” takes place at 2:00 p.m. EST.
Speakers representing research, industry and low-income housing will highlight solutions that can help maximize energy savings.
A closer look at the available options for window upgrades reveals a significant and cost-effective savings potential for many homes and businesses, say conference organizers.
The webinar will explore lower-cost products such as low-E storm windows and high-performance R-5 or higher windows and commercial glass, an increasingly affordable solution for maximum energy savings. The presenters will explain the technologies and performance metrics, provide information on incentive programs and offer a perspective on how these solutions relate to the needs of weatherization programs.
Conference participants include Marc LaFrance of the U.S. Department of Energy; Christian Kohler of the Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory; John Hamilton of the Community and Economic Development Association of Cook County, Ill.; and two window manufacturers.
