Nanoparticles for improving smart-window energy efficiency

Posted On: 09/10/18

U.S. buildings leak an estimated 30 percent of their energy through inefficient windows, costing consumers an estimated $42 billion annually. The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has patented a new process for synthesizing vanadium dioxide nanoparticles that makes manufacturing energy-efficient “smart windows” economical.
