Storm Window and Insulating Panel Campaign

What is the Storm Window and Insulating Panel Campaign?

The Storm Window and Insulating Panel (SWIP) Campaign is a collaborative initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and managed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to accelerate the adoption of low-emissivity (low-e) storm windows and insulating window panels (sometimes called window inserts or secondary glazing)—delivering  energy savings and comfort in residential and commercial buildings at a fraction of the cost of full window replacements. ​ The SWIP Campaign serves as a national platform and one-stop-shop for sharing information and recognizing successes of key stakeholders, including utilities, energy efficiency programs, weatherization organizations, home performance contractors, and others. 

Goals of the SWIP Campaign

  • Increase awareness, visibility, and build the body of knowledge
  • Establish a national platform for sharing information and best practices  
  • Help launch and promote new utility and energy efficiency programs  
  • Provide technical assistance and key resources  
  • Provide support to increase adoption in weatherization programs  
  • Recognize organizations that demonstrate success in adopting or promoting secondary glazing technologies 
  • Work with utilities and agencies to launch new pilot programs
