Speaking on Mon., Oct. 28, Sawyer will present “Windows Emerging Technologies Portfolio in DOE’s Building Technologies Office.” The BTO has developed a windows and building envelope roadmap, including quantitative metrics, to inform the research and development activities that would need to occur by 2025 to achieve a 50 percent reduction in building energy use by 2030, AAMA officials explain.

Other speakers will include: Doug Anderson, project manager of the EPA’s Energy Star Windows, Door and Skylight Program, who will discuss the latest developments in Energy Star criteria for windows, doors and skylights; and Steve Selkowitz, leader of the Windows and Envelope Materials Group at LBNL, who will share “A Vision for Fenestration Performance in a Sustainable World.”

AAMA will also administer FenestrationMasters certification exams on-site during the conference.
