U values refer to the amount of heat transference across a structure. The lower the U value, the better the glass roof is at saving energy. Whenever you see new building regulations and amendments, the U Value that is required is lowered; requiring changes in building design to comply with new U Value regulations.
G values refer to how much solar heat can be let through a part of building. A low G value is an indication that glass is letting through a low percentage of solar heat. To improve the g value of the glass, the outer glass pane will be coated with an IR reflecting surface which will reflect some of the radiant heat. This is due to reducing the cost of the cooling the property and to improve the indoor environment properties.
