Vacuum Insulated Panels Save Energy While Meeting the Demands of Real-World Construction Case Study

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning account for roughly 37% of all the energy used in commercial buildings, a large percentage of which routinely escapes as heat through the building envelope. Vacuum Insulated Panels (VIPs) are a promising technology that present opportunities to mitigate those losses, especially in regions with extreme climates and high utility costs.

Building Envelope Tech Team Kick-Off Meeting and Open House Video

In the inaugural meeting of the Building Envelope Tech Team, participants discussed goals, new resources, and technologies to improve the energy efficiency of walls, windows, and roofs.
