Smart Grids are modernised electricity delivery systems from point of generation to point of consumption. They rely on the use of innovative technologies to enhance the existing utility grid, improve the efficiency of the power network, make homes and businesses more energy efficient and reduce emissions. 3M’s culture of collaboration and combining different technologies and competencies has led to the development of a number of outstanding innovations to assist the creation of Smart Grids and protect the environment.
3M Window Films - Manage energy costs & improve occupant comfort
Energy costs typically represent 30% of a building’s annual budget. 3M Sun Control Window Films can be applied to windows in offices, schools, hospitals, Govt. Buildings, homes, in fact, anywhere there are windows, in order
to overcome the problems associated with solar heat gain.
