A Schenectady County company, Sunthru, is developing a product that they say will be a game changer.

They're called aerogels.

"Aerogels are pretty much like see through Styrofoam, so it feels just like how Styrofoam would feel," said John Costa, the CEO of Sunthru.

It's 99% air, 1% material, but somehow these tiny pieces may have the potential to change the future of energy.

"To help fight climate change and reach a net zero future, we need higher-performance windows in the United States, and aerogels have for a long time been a product that can do that."
