New windows could help power your home
Windows have evolved dramatically over the years. Ordinary single glazed windows are a major source of unwanted heat gain in summer and significant heat loss in winter. New framing and glazing materials are changing the game. The EU-funded TEG AGS project is behind the next energy breakthrough in glazing and windows, which involves the conversion of sunlight into electricity for use in that building and for recirculation to the grid. The project will work to solve several related issues, such as the need for new thermoelectric generator (TEG) materials to maximise the conversion, as well as an extraction method so that the power generated can be returned to the grid.
