International Self-Powered Building Council (ISPBC) premiered ZERO-ENERGY INC’s Zero-Heat Auto Glass in the presence of McLaren 12C Coupe and Spider sports cars at the exclusive RAND Luxury Technology Show in New York.
ZERO-ENERGY utilizes advanced Nano-Shielding glass technology in a new generation of affordable low-thermal-emission (Low-e) glass which reduces 100% of heat causing ultraviolet(UV) and infrared(IR) radiation with a record-setting 80% transparency, and added anti-blast security function.
ZERO-ENERGY Auto Glass is a green technology to increase mileage in both gas and electric vehicles (EV). It is the ultimate solution to protect the driver and passengers from the intense heat caused by climate change, skin damage from UV radiation, eye strain from exposure to bright sunlight while protecting vehicle interiors from fading, and prolonging the lifespan of the vehicle.
The exhibited Zero-Heat sunroof and windshield glass are licensed by ZERO-ENERGY Inc., and manufactured by YuSheng Industrial Co. Ltd - a joint venture company of the Taiwan conglomerate YuLon Auto Group (developer of the LUXGEN brand cars and EV) with annual revenue of US$35 billion, and Central Glass (Japan).
ZERO-ENERGY Auto Glass was selected as one of the most cutting edge technologies to feature at the ISPBC Autonomous Technology Showcase.
Studies have shown that the temperature inside a parked vehicle can rapidly rise to a dangerous level for children, pets and even adults. On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 100 and 120 degrees in just minutes, and the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes.

Extended amount of driving is known to cause eye strain resulting in tired and itchy eyes. It is also easy to get sunburned through car windows. One study noted a 93% reduction in skin cell death when UV exposure was filtered through UV-absorbing auto glass. (Source: Skincancer.org)
