Description: Presented by
Blake Hogan, Manager
Electrochromic glazing provides a dynamic solution to control solar heat gain and light, while preserving the view and connection to the outdoors. Numerous studies have shown improved learning environments, increased productivity, and better health outcomes when that view and connection to the outdoors is maintained. Electrochromics provides the capability to control solar gain and light levels based on outdoor conditions without blocking the view. Lighting, heating and cooling consume at least 65 percent of the energy used in a typical building, and effectively controlling solar heat gain has a major impact on all three factors. This presentation details how electrochromic glazing can be used to meter and control the amount of light and solar energy entering a building to provide optimum daylighting and energy efficiency. An introduction to electrochromics, use of zoning, variable tinting, and control strategies will be discussed. Electrochromic glass offers the unique capability to control light and heat dynamically based on actual conditions while preserving the view and connection to the outdoors. This presentation gives AIA credit equal to One Learning Unit HSW/SD.

Mr. Blake Hogan is the South Central Territory Manager and supports business growth for SAGE Electrochromics. Sage is the world’s leading manufacturer of electronically tintable glass that can be tinted or cleared to optimize daylight and improve the human experience in buildings. It is also a smarter, more elegant solution than conventional sun controls such as mechanical windows shades, blinds and louvers. In many cases Sage Glass is first cost competitive.
SageGlass is designed for architects, building owners, general contractors and glazing contractors who want an energy-efficient glazing solution that controls the sun without blocking the view and connection to the outdoors.
Mr. Hogan attended the University of Minnesota and the University of Notre Dame Mendoza School of Business, and served four years as a first Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. 1stLt Blake Hogan served in many roles, which ranged from training officer at the Officers Basic School, to project manager at Headquarters Marine Corps Seabasing, to Operation War Fighter at the Pentagon. 1stLt Hogan, was medically retired due to injuries sustained in training and crafted the aforementioned career with a relentless desire to serve his Corps, if even in a limited capacity. He is most proud of his work with the Wounded Warrior Regiment to assist in implementing the Warrior Athlete Rehabilitation Program which is similar to Olympic trials for our warriors.
