6 Skills You Need To Be A Great Manager 🌟

 
If you have energy-efficient windows in your home, you know what a difference they can make in keeping your house insulated from the weather and preventing any heat or AC from leaking out. In the future, smart windows could go a step further, with the ability to actually harvest energy from the sun to heat your house in the winter, and reflect it in the summer to keep your home cool, without changing how well the sun’s light shines through. The work is in its early stages, but it could ultimately have a big impact on energy savings. Read more about how here.
