According to the release, the researchers placed hydrogel-based liquid -- a combination of micro-hydrogel, water, and stabilizer -- between glass panels to develop the liquid window. The researchers explained that a hydrogen-based liquid could respond to a change in temperature as it becomes non-transparent when exposed to heat and blocks the sunlight, and returns to its clear state when cooled. Besides that, water's high heat capacity enables the liquid window to store a large amount of thermal energy instead of getting transferred through the glass and into buildings during the day times.
As part of the experiment, the researchers conducted outdoor tests in Singapore's hot environment and the cold climate of Beijing, China.
The smart liquid window registered a lower temperature (50 degree C) than a normal glass window (84 degrees C) during the hottest time of the day in Singapore. While the Beijing test revealed that the room equipped with the smart liquid window utilized 11 pct less energy to keep the same temperature than the room with a normal glass window.

Wind energy has been resilient in the COVID-19 crisis. Europe's existing wind farms continued to operate, delivering electricity where it was needed. The industry continued installing new capacity, connecting 5 GW to the grid in the first semester of 2020. It also kept building new turbines in its factories. And it invested €14 billion in new projects ready to go ahead. Wind energy therefore can play a significant role in a green economic recovery.
But wind creates additional benefits beyond jobs and value to the economy. It directly benefits communities living near wind farms. It pays €5 billion in taxes across Europe every year and often make direct payments to communities, offer benefits-in-kind, and in many cases communities participate partially in the ownership of the local wind farm.
The EU Green Deal envisages a major expansion of wind energy over the next 30 years, taking it from 15 pct of Europe's electricity today to around half by 2050. By delivering on this, the EU can significantly boost the contribution of its globally competitive wind industry to the economy, and benefit communities across the continent.
