Less energy

Glass has a major influence on the HVAC design and performance. High level solar control glasses contribute to HVAC savings of up to 25%. A decent calculation in the design phase can bring a permanent solution in preventing too much sun heat from entering the ship or even regulate the amount of UV-light coming into the ship yourself at all times. Glass can offer passive as well as active solutions in order to save energy.
