In modern architecture, large-area glazing is a continuing trend because of its appearance and design variety. Large southwards-oriented windows help to reduce the energy demand for heating in winter. However, large-area glazing may significantly increase the energy demand for cooling and air-conditioning in hot summers. Smart Glass Solutions – such as electrochromic (EC) and thermochromic (TC) windows and glass façades control the radiation energy transfer with the “touch of a button” and thus can drastically reduce the energy demands for heating and air conditioning of large buildings. In addition, they allow superior indoor lighting comfort in contrast to conventional mechanical window blinds. Switch2Save H2020 project has been launched to improve the availability and affordability of EC and TC smart glass technologies. The consortium of ten partners from research and industry will demonstrate the energy saving potential of Smart Glass Solutions in two fully-operational buildings.
Hosted by BUILD UP, the Switch2Save project organises the webinar entitled “Lightweight switchable smart solutions for energy saving glass facades“. Moderated by Lenka Bajarova from AMIRES, the webinar will take place 12/12/2022 and will present the main features of Switch2Save technology and its potential impact and will also introduce the Architectural Design Competition.
- Project Overview (Matthias Fahland, FEP)
- Technical achievements (materials & components) and Demo-sites (Greger Gregard, ChromoGenics)

We are inviting you to a hybrid Workshop on Energy Efficient Technologies for Building Envelopes from November 25 – 27, 2020 in Dresden or online. Switch2Save project, in which AMIRES is a partner, will be presented during the first and second day of the workshop.
According to the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD), all newly planned buildings in the EU shall be “nearly zero-energy” buildings by December 2020. Therefore, long term renovation strategies for existing buildings are needed to ensure a low and zero-emission building stock all over Europe by 2050.
Nanotechnology offers energy saving solutions for buildings such as smart windows, solar energy harvesting, active energy storage or super insulative elements and can therefore be an important part to achieve this mission.
The presentations in this technical workshop will focus on the latest developments in nanotechnology research and the most promising technologies for the energy efficient buildings of the future.
Each day of the workshop sets a different emphasis:
Day 1 – Energy efficient technologies for building envelopes
Day 2 – Reliability, life time and characterization
Day 3 – Energy smart solutions in membrane architecture (German only)
On the event website you will find the tentative program as well as the registration form.
Due to unsecure situation, we are happy to offer an online participation. For those who prefer to finally meet people on-site again, we prepared a security concept to make sure that your participation is safe and to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
