SAGE Electrochromics was founded in 1989 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Saint-Gobain of Paris, the world's largest building materials company. Its product, SageGlass® is advanced dynamic glass that can be electronically tinted or cleared to optimize daylight and improve the human experience in buildings. SageGlass manages the sunlight and heat that enter a building, significantly reducing energy consumption while improving people's comfort and well-being. It can reduce a building's cooling load by 20% and HVAC requirements up to 30%.
