During the third quarter, ChromoGenics delivered and installed ConverLight™ dynamic glass to the Swedish Energy Agency's new headquarters in Eskilstuna, which was recently inaugurated. A building of a former metal foundry has been transformed into an activity-based office, fully adapted to the activities of the Swedish Energy Agency.
"We focus on creating energy-efficient solutions by using new technologies. Our headquarters in Eskilstuna has put great emphasis on energy-efficient materials and solutions in our selections. We focus on the whole life cycle analysis when selecting technology and materials. Our office should be modern, comfortable and with high energy efficiency," says Kerstin Jansson, Project manager from the Department of Administration and Development at the Swedish Energy Agency. "ConverLight™ dynamic glass was chosen for its energy efficiency and indoor comfort. This is an excellent solar control solution for us since environment and sustainability are high on our agenda," concludes Kerstin Jansson at the Swedish Energy Agency.
"We are proud to be part of this highly prestigious project focused on sustainable building and energy-efficient solutions," says Thomas Almesjö, CEO of ChromoGenics. "It is inspiring to collaborate with companies and associations that are at the forefront of innovative technology in energy efficient solutions. Our product ConverLight™ controls heat and light emittance while maintaining daylight and full view to the outside world. This results in energy savings and increases the comfort and well-being of people staying in the building. In addition, ConverLight™ contributes to environmental certification of buildings, which is high on today's agenda within companies and associations that are committed to helping achieve the European and global environmental and sustainability goals." concludes Thomas Almesjö.
