Title: Electrochromic Window Demonstration at the John E. Moss Federal Building, 650 Capitol Mall, Sacramento, California

Abstract

Dynamic windows have the potential to provide real-time optimization of perimeter zone energy use, peak demand, comfort, amenity, and cost criteria on a seasonal or even minute-to- minute basis in response to weather, occupant or regional grid demands. Electrochromic (EC) windows, a type of dynamic window, have the ability to adjust their tint dynamically in response to a small applied voltage. In previous studies, they have shown potential to reduce heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) energy consumption and increase occupant satisfaction. This technology is available in the U.S. as a commercial product from multiple vendors with high-capacity manufacturing facilities, and could be broadly deployed if successful in a pilot test. This Green Proving Ground (GPG) program study examines the energy and comfort performance of EC windows in south-facing perimeter zones of a typical U.S. General Services Administration GSA office building.
