“In the current market, industrial, residential and commercial builders face myriad options for improving building energy efficiency that includes high-performance insulation, energy-efficient equipment, and a growing cadre of smart systems and controls,” writes BCC analysts. “When seeking green building certification or simply higher energy efficiency construction, cost-effectiveness and multiple benefits become critical factors in selecting energy-efficient, green technologies. High-performance insulation includes a group of rapidly growing, multi-benefit residential and commercial building technologies designed to improve insulation capacity while advancing building strength.”

The Growth of Aerogels

The report adds that aerogels, first developed in the 1930s, were popularized in 1999 by the NASA Stardust mission, which used them to capture dust particles from a comet. In the past 15 years, interest has increased steadily in these ultra-light, nonporous materials, leading to their use in many industrial, high-performance applications. Aerogels now are commercially available in a variety of materials, shapes and sizes, to meet the requirements of a broader number of applications.
