YPSILANTI, Mich. – LuxWall, Inc., a leader in innovative energy-efficient glass solutions is poised to drive dramatic change in the built environment with a product portfolio that lowers carbon emissions from building energy use. LuxWall manufactures high-performance glass that acts as transparent insulation, providing thermal insulation values that rival fiberglass wall insulation.
Buildings are a large source of emissions – the energy they use accounts for nearly 14% of all greenhouse gases and up to 40% of heated or cooled air is leaked out.
As a business that is part of the Breakthrough Energy Ventures (BEV) portfolio of companies, LuxWall was featured in the The Year Ahead 2023 newsletter. BEV is a climate-focused investment fund that helps support companies like LuxWall that are focused on net-zero solutions.
LuxWall’s vacuum insulating glass product will result in up to 45% savings in a building’s energy costs, with at least an R-12 thermal insulation value (center of glass). The fully tempered glass will reduce carbon emissions up to 45% while opening an array of possibilities for design and new construction as well as for a simple and cost-efficient retrofit process for existing structures.
