Windows, Doors and Skylights Are Essential Part of Energy-Efficient, Green Buildings

February 27th, 2020 by Editor

Much more than a passing trend or fleeting fad, the demand for energy efficiency in homes and commercial spaces is growing by leaps and bounds. And with good reason: It makes economic sense for building managers and homeowners who save money from lower electric bills, some via energy-efficient doors and windows. 

Recognizing this need, the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) will have a series of informational sessions at its 2020 Spring Committee Meeting in College Park, Md., on March 16. Officials say the goal is to give engineers, architects, code officials and others involved in the sustainable building supply chain access to the best experts, data and science available.

Council officials point to a recent study finding that the $28 billion door and window market has a projected 4% growth through 2023, suggesting that the strength of their industry goes beyond the latest in construction trends to include energy-efficiency standards that contribute to “whole-building design.”

Along with a chance to learn about the latest green building trends and network with leading experts, attendees will be eligible for AIA and LEED credits. Click here to register.
