Contact and Funding
Lead Org(s): NEEA
Primary: John Jennings
Secondary: Mark Rehley
Funding: Scoping and project design funded
Project Objectives:

Assess the energy savings and product performance as well as occupant acceptance of  suspended film and rigid plastic panes in secondary windows, and potentially low-e surface applied film on primary windows.

Current Project Phase: Active
Current Project Status: Scoping this project with PNNL to test in-place, on an occupied administrative building with test office and control office, suspended films, rigid plastic, and potentially the newest hard-coat, washable Low-e Surface Applied Films (SAF). Physical testing will evaluate technical, qualitative, and product “fit for use” performance including visual, sound and comfort impacts. The testing will occur for summer and winter periods through seasonal changes and temperature extremes.
Project Outcome: Not Specified
Notes on Project Outcome: N/A
Additional Information
Using PNNL physical office spaces in Richland, WA, or similar, as test sites.
