Energy Efficient Video Series
Video 1: High Level Energy Efficiency
This video provides information on what is driving the requirement for energy efficiency, including the
2015 Paris Agreement; general energy policy; aims for future energy targets and compliance with the National Construction Code and state and territory
Video 2: The science of energy and energy efficiency
The science of energy and energy efficiency is investigates here and it includes information
on the factors that affect energy requirements including in depth information on the physics behind window performance U-Values (comparison to R-values);
Solar Heat Gain Co-efficient; low-E coatings; double glazing and triple glazing; effect of location and orientation on energy; shading and more.
Video 3: Selecting the right glazing for comfort
Information in this video helps builders, designers and consumers address the factors that need to be
considered for the appropriate selection and use of windows and glass in new buildings, retrofits and renovations. The emphasis is on taking maximum
advantage of the technology currently available to maximise comfort levels of your building.
Through a generous grant from the Office of Environment and Heritage New South Wales, the Australian Window Association has released these three informative videos for the fenestration industry, building industry and consumers nationwide. The videos are based on enhancing the understanding of energy efficiency in fenestration (glazed window and door) products.
