Question of the day: Have you used smart windows, and if so, where and why?

SageGlass, the electrochromic glazing made by Sage Electrochromics , is the only widely marketed dynamic glazing on the market today, and the company has made some significant advances since I last covered the product in this blog a few years ago. SageGlass relies on a low-voltage electric current to tint the glazing. The company uses a sputtering process (like that used to produce soft-coat low-e glazings) to coat a pane of glass with five extremely thin, highly specialized ceramic layers. These coatings are typically applied on the #2 surface (the inner surface of the outer pane of glass). When voltage is applied across these coatings, according to Sage, ions travel from one layer to another, prompting a reversible solid-state change that causes the coating to tint and absorb light. Reversing the polarity of the applied voltage causes the ions to migrate back to their or...
