1 Bipin Shah ( President ) WinBuild Inc. National Fenestration Rating Council International Programs Coordinator US-DOE Building Program Consultant Establishment of Window Rating and Labelling Program A means to achieving Building Energy Codes Compliance and Energy Efficiency Targets. James C. Benney, CAE Chief Executive Officer National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC)

2 Topics Policy and Commercialization Path Governance Establishing the Windows Component & System Simulation and Testing Facilities; Quality assurance and Database Labeling Process Compliance Codes Incentive Programs and Promotion

3 Traditional R& D Demonstration of Case Studies Rating and Labeling Program Mandatory Requirement - Building Codes Financial Incentives Technology Procurement Audits / ESCOs Policies & Commercialization Path R&D Market Introduction Mainstream Deployment Regulation Voluntary Labeling For Compliance Mandatory

4 Currently NFRC has 1.67 Million Products Options Rated Energy Star Codes and Govt. Incentives

5 Transforming the Market # of Units Energy Efficiency (Metrics) Market Conditioning R&D - Information - Incentives - Outreach - Leadership Building Codes and Standards Transforming Product Performance Efficient Energy Efficiency Policies

6 Why Rating is important Helps to verify code compliance Provides product performance comparison and assists consumer to make informed decision Promotes energy efficiency by providing a base line for product development and improvement. Also creates market competition for improved products Consumer benefit (assured payback, Insurance, tax incentives, and etc. Policies – Regulations Are difficult to implement and enforce unless one has the infrastructure to support compliance (ratings, certification, product testing, quality control, whole building integrated performance)

7 Requirements of a Successful Rating System Fair, accurate and unbiased Based on Science Provide Verifiable, Repeatable and Consistent Results Evaluation Based on Fixed Conditions Cost Effective for Adoption Industry buy-in

8 Structure Of A Rating Organization Governance Body Board of Directors which is balanced between Industry and Consumer interest representation Testing and Simulation Laboratories accredited by the Governing Body Service: Provides Energy ratings per prescribed standards Inspection Agency –Licensed by the Governing Body Service: Audits products which the participants rate. Membership: Participates in the program and pays fees Executive office and Staff: Carries out day to day operation and management Committee responsible for development of procedures and standards

9 Applicable ISO Standards ISO – Thermal Performance of Windows, Doors and Shading Devices Detailed Calculations ISO 12567: Thermal performance of windows and doors -Determination of thermal transmittance by hot box method –Part 1: Complete windows and doors and –Part II: Roof windows and other projecting windows ISO Glass in building-Determination of light transmittance, solar direct transmittance, total solar energy transmittance, ultraviolet transmittance and related glazing factors

10 Available Tools Simulation Tools WINDOW THERM OPTICS THERM (Window Frame) Optics (Window Glass) WINDOW+5 (Whole Window) Computer Programs are ISO & 9050 compliant Simulations – Provides Repeatability Consistency and Reliability – Beside being Cost Effective

11 Testing Used for Windows, Product Certification Fenestration: Simulation of U-factor, Solar Heat Gain Factor and Visible transmittance - ISO U-factor testing - ASTM C 1363, C1199, NFRC 102 Solar Heat Gain Testing – NFRC 201 Spectral Optical Property – ISO 9050, ASTM E903, NFRC 300, 301 Air Leakage – ASTM E283, NFRC 400 Hot Box Solar Calorimeter Spectrophotometer Air Leakage Test Lab to be ISO compliant

12 Window Energy Rating Process – Pre Fabricated Simulation Laboratory Simulate All Option Market Place Responsible Party Label Product Testing Laboratory (Test One Base Line Product) NFRC Label or Label Certificate Inspection Agency (IA) Issue Certificate authorization, Plant inspection Compliance Assurance and Penalties for non-compliance

13 This product has been rated in accordance with ANSI / AAMA / NWWDA 101 / I.S AND NFRC 100 HS-R20 120x60 Series: 2600 P.L.# CONFORMS TO: CMBSO / CAWM Validator: ALI © Code: SWP-1 AAMA CERTIFICATION PROGRAM ACCREDITED BY: AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARDS INSTITUTE QUALITY CONTROL & TESTING Rating of Products Pre Fabricated Temporary (Displayed for Verification removed after installation and inspection) Permanent: (Part of the window, used for replacement of components to preserve performance)

14 Rating Process for Post Fabricated 14 Glazing infill / Center of Glazing assembly Frame system / Frame assembly Spacer system / spacer assembly PRODUCT CONFIGURATION Overall product rating calculation Glazing component Spacer componentFrame component Component Modeling Approach - CMA

17 NFRC – Certified Product Database

18 Implementation of Successful Rating System Referenced by Codes and Regulations Promotional Programs like Energy Star Financial Incentives

19 Fenestration & Code IECC & IBC International (Energy Conservation Code & International Building Code) –IECC and IBCs Energy Code require rating for Residential and Non- Residential and specify NFRC certification for compliance. ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Engineers) –ASHRAE 90.1: Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings require U-factor and Solar Heat Gain and specify NFRC certification for compliance. ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Engineers) –ASHRAE 90.2: Energy Standard for Low-Rise Residential Buildings require U-factor and Solar Heat Gain and specify NFRC certification for compliance.

20 Energy Policy Act 2005 & Energy Star Program

21 Incentive Program

22 Tax Credit the IRS has provided a special rule (on page 7 of the IRS notice ) for claiming the residential tax credits with Energy Star windows:.03 Special Rule for Energy Star Windows and Skylights. A taxpayer may treat an exterior window or skylight that bears an Energy Star label and is installed in the region identified on the label as an Eligible Building Envelope Component and may rely on such Energy Star label, rather than on a manufacturers certification statement, in claiming the § 25C credit.

23 The impact of successful NFRC rating program, in the year 2003 in the USA, 41% of all conventional residential windows were energy rated and were classified as Energy Star® Windows; which would not have been possible without NFRC ratings. As a result, NFRC was active in saving over 7 billion BTUs (and 2 million kWs peak load) in just one year (2003). Impact Rating Can Have in The Market Place
