Abstract

To accomplish specific energetic and environmental tasks in buildings large area electrochromic windows must exhibit acceptable levels in specific performance indicators. These parameters concern a number of electrical, thermal and optical properties which depend on the structural composition and configuration of the electrochromic device. In this paper a comprehensive and systematic analysis of the optimal performance requirements of electrochromic windows from the perspective of building energy efficiency and indoor comfort has been carried out. A comparison with the performance of a home-made fully solid-state electrochromic device tested in laboratory controlled conditions and of large-area electrochromic glazing currently available in the market is also made. The study points out the actual potential of the electrochromic technology for smart window applications and identifies some desirable performance improvements for optimizing building integration.
