Russell Huffer, chairman and chief executive of Apogee Enterprises, Inc., cited a book co-authored by John Carmody (Center for Sustainable Building Research) in his keynote address to the Building Envelope Contractors Conference on February 17, 2009. Huffer cited Carmody's co-authored book, Window Systems for High Performance Buildings, as providing crucial evidence that greater use of daylighting is one of the most effective ways to reduce energy use in commercial buildings. "Using coated, insulating glass that manages both the light and heat has a big impact on reducing energy consumption," Huffer said. "It can reduce lighting, heating and air conditioning consumption in a typical commercial building by over 25 percent compared to single-pane uncoated glass."
