HALIO, the Industry’s Leader in Smart Glass Technology, Raises $70M from Korea’s SKC to Impact the Environment and Energy Savings
HALIO, designer of the world’s fastest, most beautiful, eco-friendly, and technologically advanced electrochromic (smart) glass, and SKC Ltd., a leading company in the ESG Materials Solution industry based in South Korea, today announced that HALIO has raised up to $70M in funding from SKC to further market and develop the industry’s next generation of smart glass technology, focusing on energy savings, environmental impact, and creating beautiful facades, while enabling occupant wellness and comfort.
HALIO Smart Glass enables architects to design beautiful and elegant facades, supporting building owners’ pursuit of providing occupants with the most comfortable, productive, and healthy interior environments. HALIO’s Sky Camera, tint algorithms, and control automation, coupled with the industry’s fastest switching speed (within seconds), make HALIO the only smart glass solution that truly optimizes daylight control and solar heat gain management in real-time.
HALIO’s smart glass technology reduces a building’s operational energy use by up to 22%. It decreases peak demand by 25%, which is vital in balancing overstressed power grids (Red Car Analytics - Energy Efficiency Analysis of HALIO, Nov 2019). With countries now targeting buildings as major energy users, regulations increasingly require more efficient facades. Additionally, new incentives like the U.S. Investment Tax Credit reward owners for adding energy-saving solutions like HALIO Smart Glass.
