Energy Efficient Glazing, Speaker: Bob Schrock CSI CCPR, LEED AP BD+C. PPG Industries Architectural Services Manager

The PPG presentation on Energy Efficient Glazing will provide information on the technology used in manufacturing glazing and low e coatings.  It will demonstrate how low e coatings work and how energy use in a building is impacted by the selection of low e coatings.  It will explore the relationship between energy management and visible light, define Spectrally Selective glass, discuss the differences between “passive” and “solar control” low-e coatings and show the impact of low e coatings applied on either surface #2 or #3. It will look at the choices of low e performance and available tints when selecting glazing for a project. Participants will gain a better understanding of how to select a proper glazing system for their projects.  The presentation will discuss how glazing systems relate to the LEED rating system for energy, day lighting and material resources.  Participants will learn how the energy, environmental and economic benefits of low-e glass have been quantified through studies and simulation modeling.
