The approach that is available in EnergyPlus is to swap out entire constructions rather than change the material properties of a material inside a construction. For BSDF glazing, you would set up a series of Construction:ComplexFenestrationState objects that have the material conductivity changes included in them. Then EMS switches the construction over time using the EMS actuator Surface Construction State.
