We would like to replace our vinyl siding with a more energy efficient option. Recommendations?

One third of the house is protected with vinyl siding (it is a 1978 addition to a brick colonial) and it gets a lot of sun. Very warm in summer and very cold in winter. We are looking for something that might add some insulation value and be durable. Since we plan to be in the house for some time, we are also interested in the aesthetic qualities...to a lesser extent.

No matter what kind you use, the siding itself won't provide much insulation value.

You can get vinyl siding with a rigid insulation backing, but that is quite thin and adds...
