The Advanced Research Projects Agency Energy (ARPA-E) has posted a Request for Information (RFI) on Highly Insulating Building Enclosures. This RFI aims to gather insights and input for the possible formulation of future programs focused on the development of highly insulating R-10-rated glass for windows and R-50-rated walls for residential and commercial building retrofit and new construction. The purpose of this RFI is to identify potential participants and inform the development of a potential funding opportunity in these transformative technologies. The goal is to reduce energy consumption in buildings, which accounted for about 12% of total national energy consumption in 2022. By improving building enclosures, such as windows, walls, doors, attic, and air leaks, the energy used for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) can be significantly reduced. This RFI is not seeking applications for financial assistance, but rather soliciting input to shape future programs. Responses should be submitted in PDF format to by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on June 7, 2024. For more information, please visit the ARPA-E eXCHANGE at
