The U.S. Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory, on behalf of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Building Technologies Program, has awarded GED Integrated Solutions Inc., Twinsburg, Ohio,the Production Engineering and Commercialization of Residential R-5 Highly Insulating Windows research and development grant, according to a June 11 release.

The grant serves as a valuable catalyst in the advancement to design and develop a high-volume, low-material and labor cost automated manufacturing system that results in a high performance R-5 value window system, and will enhance the industry’s ability to provide homeowners with affordable, highly-efficient residential windows at minimal cost.

“We are much honored to have been selected for this award," said Bill Weaver, president and CEO, in the release. "GED has a long history of providing the window and door industry with cutting-edge manufacturing and software systems. Our innovations in insulating glass production and window fabrications equipment have allowed manufacturers to provide extremely energy-efficient products to their customers, while maintaining the highest levels of quality, cost reduction and manufacturing productivity. Everyone at GED is very excited for the opportunity to work with the DOE and industry manufacturers to continue to develop and promote even more effective production systems needed to meet consumer demands for more energy efficient residential windows at affordable prices.”

The NETL supports the U.S. Department of Energy’s mission to advance the national, economic, and energy security of the United States, and implements a broad spectrum of energy and environmental research and development programs that will return benefits for generations to come.

In addition to research conducted onsite, NETL’s project portfolio includes R&D conducted through partnerships, cooperative research and development agreements, financial assistance, and contractual arrangements with universities and the private sector, according to the release. Together, these efforts focus a wealth of scientific and engineering talent on creating commercially viable solutions to national energy and environmental problems that will make a positive difference in the everyday lives of Americans by enhancing their energy choices and quality of life.
