The amount of heat entering the building in total from solar sources compared with that of a standard piece of glass just under 4mm thick. You can also take the total solar heat transmission and divide by 0.87 to get the result or add the short wave and long wave shading coefficients together.

Solar control glass can be an attractive feature of a building whilst at the same time minimising, or even eliminating the need for an air conditioning system, reducing running costs of the building and saving energy. In hot climates, solar control glass can be used to minimise solar heat gain and help control glare.

Will retrofit incentives boost energy efficiency in the UK?

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/news-insights/archived-blogs/will-retrofit-incentives-boost-energy-efficiency-in-the-uk

As part of its drive for a more sustainable built environment, the UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) is keen to boost energy efficiency by increasing the demand for retrofit measures. With this in mind, they’ve released a report that identifies a set of promising options that look to encourage a wider uptake of energy efficiency measures.

The rate of radiant energy emitted per unit wavelength interval is called the spectral energy distribution function. As indicated in the diagram below only a narrow band between 380 nm and 780 nm of the solar spectrum received at the earth's surface is visible to the eye, whilst the radiation below 380 nm (ultraviolet) and between 780 nm and about 3000 nm (near infrared) and beyond is invisible.
