Windows as renewable energy sources for Europe – Window Energy Data network
Project website: http://www.windat.org/
Program Type: FP5-EESD
Project details: WinDat aims to make available and freely distribute a European software tool (WIS) for the calculation of the thermal and solar properties of commercial and innovative window systems on the basis of known component properties and thermal and solar/optical interactions between the components.
It is hoped that this tool will be collectively supported and used in research, industry, standardisation, education and design throughout Europe to compare, select and promote innovative windows and window components for the optimum use of renewable energy and maximised energy savings and indoor comfort. Funding agency: European Commission -EU Fifth Framework Programme (FP5),
