Transparent insulation materials (TIMs) have been developed for application to building facades to reduce heating energy demands of a building. The purpose of this research is to investigate the feasibility of TI-applications for high-rise and low-rise office buildings in London, UK, to reduce heating energy demands in winter and reduce overheating problems in summer.
