New Energy Enters into Research & Development Agreement with DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Date: 1 April 2011
New Energy Technologies Inc. has announced that as part of its efforts to advance the commercial development of its SolarWindow™ , the company has entered into a cooperative research and development agreement with the U.

S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

“The addition of NREL’s world-class solar research group to our ongoing efforts at the University of South Florida marks a significant step forward for our company and our SolarWindow™ technology,” says John A. Conklin, president and chief executive officer New Energy Technologies.

Under terms of the CRADA, NREL researchers will make use of the company’s exclusive intellectual property and NREL’s background intellectual property in order to work towards specific product development goals, including efforts to:

  • Further bolster SolarWindow efficiency and transparency;
  • Boost electrical power (current and voltage) output;
  • Optimize the application of the active layer coatings which make it possible for the window to generate electricity on glass surfaces;
  • Increase the size of the active layer in the window, key to increasing the size of the final commercial product; and
  • Develop improved electricity-generating coatings by enhancing performance, processing, reliability and durability.

“We’re always eager to help industry advance renewable energy breakthroughs towards commercial products. I welcome the opportunity to work with New Energy Technologies on the development of its SolarWindow technology,” says Ryne Raffaelle, director of NREL’s National Center for Photovoltaics.
