Abstract: Electrochromic windows (ECWs) are made up of chromogenic materials. It has existed for a few decades and there are many research conducted to evaluate benefits of utilizing ECWs, with regards to a few parameters such as energy consumption, occupants’ visual and thermal comfort, etc. Despite that, majority of studies conducted are done in places with differing climates from Singapore. Singapore experiences tropical climate throughout the year. The exposure of high solar radiation, combined with high amounts of rainfall, leads to the buildings in Singapore requiring large amounts of energy for cooling purposes. As Singapore has targeted to reduce its carbon footprint, and a large portion of energy consumption stemming from the household and commercial sector, the best strategy is to reduce building’s energy consumption. This research aims to investigate the performance of ECWs against the widely used Low-Emissivity Glass in Singapore. Data will be collected with the use of IoT climatic chambers, which will then be analysed to investigate the differences and significance of using ECWs as compared to the referenced glass. In addition, ECWs will be evaluated to determine its performance in terms of visual and thermal comfort. The results derived from the analysis conducted will be assessed to determine the benefits of ECWs.
