Theoretically thermochromic glazing has the potential to reduce energy consumption inbuildings by allowing visible light for day lighting, reducing unwanted solar gain during the coolingseason, while allowing useful solar gain in the heating season. In this study building simulation isused to predict the savings made by novel thermochromic glazing coatings compared to standardproducts, for locations with different climates. The results suggest that thermochromic glazing canhave a significant energy saving effect compared to current approaches.
