Energy DepartmentThe Energy Department has invested $30 million in a new project that aims to help reduce heat loss in commercial and residential buildings.

The program seeks to retrofit single-pane windows with transparent and insulating materials under the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, the department said Wednesday.

“The ARPA-E SHIELD program will help reduce our nation’s energy consumption by developing innovative materials to insulate existing windows in cases where window replacement isn’t feasible,” said Ellen Williams, ARPA-E director.

Up to $10 million will be allocated to small businesses through the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer program, and up to $20 million for all applicants.

DOE expects the project to help reduce building heat loss by 50 percent.
