Serious Energy Inc. has installed its super-insulating SeriousGlass in the New York Stock Exchange building.

The retrofit will increase the thermal performance of the stock exchange by almost 60 percent and reduce solar heat gain by 40 percent compared to the original glass, according to Serious Energy.

The new glass also reduces interior fading by blocking 99.9 percent of ultraviolet rays and reduces the need to use steam radiator pipes to warm the glass in the winter, Serious Energy says.

SeriousGlass was used in the highly-publicized retrofit of the Empire State Building that recently won a LEED gold certification.

The $20 million project, primarily funded by energy and operational savings, is expected to reduce the skyscraper’s energy use by up to 38 percent, cut energy costs by $4.4 million annually, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 105,000 metric tons over the next 15 years, according the building’s web site.
