Vacuum Insulated Panels (VIPs) offer very effective insulation (achieving an R-value of 50) within a very slim profile, making them useful on roofs where adding bulk is costly. Researchers found that VIPs were robust if installed with care, and that R-50 insulation can offer favorable payback in one-story buildings in regions with extreme climates and high utility costs.
