Dow Corning presents energy-efficient glass and glazing Webinar

Post Time:Nov 12,2013Classify:Industry NewsView:112

Lawrence D. Carbary, construction industry scientist for Dow Corning, Midland, Mich., will discuss glazing methods for long-term energy savings and sustainability on June 5 in a free web seminar organized by the Glass Association of North America, Topeka, Kan..

“Concerns over energy usage, carbon emissions and global warming in the developed world have risen steadily over the past few years,” said Carbary. “Buildings consume significant energy for heating, cooling and lighting. Energy-efficient fenestration systems and sustainable building materials play a critical role in reducing energy costs and carbon emissions.”

The presentation, “Thermal and Energy Modeling of Two Fenestration Systems in Hot and Cold Climates,” which Carbary co-authored with Valerie Hayez, strategic application engineer, Dow Corning, discusses the energy consumption of commercial buildings with varying climatic conditions and materials. Carbary will compare mechanically fixed glazed curtain wall systems to Dow Corning’s Silicone Structural Glazed system and demonstrate simulations using Therm and Window software from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, Berkeley,Calif.,and EFEN software from Carli Inc., Amherst, Mass.

The Webinar begins at noon EDT.Register here.
