DOE Webinar June 22, 2010: Cost-Effective Triple Pane (R-5) and Low-e Storm Windows — Available Now
May 25, 2010
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Building Technologies Program is offering a webinar on Tuesday, June 22, 2010, from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. EST titled "Cost-Effective Triple Pane (R-5) and Low-e Storm Windows — Available Now."
Windows in the United States account for 30% of building heating and cooling energy loss, and represent a key opportunity for improving the energy efficiency of buildings. This webinar will provide information about DOE's effort to bring affordable triple pane and low-e storm windows to the marketplace. Through the launch of a new DOE-sponsored volume purchase program, builders and distributors can buy these windows at a competitive price. Learn more.
Specifically, our speakers will present:
- An overview of DOE's window technology research
- How the volume purchase program has made these windows affordable
- Energy-savings and high-performance design opportunities
- Window products specifications and pricing
- Information on how to purchase these windows.
This webinar is intended for any organization that purchases windows in large volume, including weatherization agencies, housing authorities, builders, contractors, and distributors.
