The paper consists of three research reports presenting the results and analysis of studies on the thermal performance and embodied energy of slim‐profile double glazing. The studies involved the in‐situ U‐value measurements of ten slim‐profile double‐glazing systems, calculations of whole‐window U‐values from these measurements, and assessment of the embodied energy involved in the production and transportation of such glazing. For comparison, the thermal performance of single‐glazed windows was also calculated, with and without secondary glazing. Other factors, such as the appearance, cost or practicalities of slim‐profile double glazing, or secondary glazing, are not considered in this paper.
