John A. Conklin, President and CEO of New Energy Technologies, Inc. stated, “This recognition reflects the tremendous efforts of our researchers and development team in advancing our SolarWindow™ technology recently. We look forward to further innovations and unveiling our next-generation prototypes to the world early in 2014.”
The Company has made numerous advancements to its prototype see-through solar technology for generating electricity on glass and flexible plastics, including: achieving faster fabrication time, improved transparency and device design and architecture. The technology is produced using low-cost manufacturing methods, and is capable of remaining see-through while generating electricity using both natural and artificial light sources, and has been engineered to be architecturally neutral and aesthetically-pleasing.
New Energy Technologies is preparing to unveil the Company’s next-generation, high performance SolarWindow™ prototypes with never-before-released photos and multi-media content within the first quarter, 2014. The Company is awaiting performance results for its latest high-performance prototypes from an accredited independent Photovoltaic Testing Lab measuring electrical performance of photovoltaic cells. Upon receipt of the Lab’s Performance Test Report, the Company anticipates announcing unveiling dates and additional information regarding the technology in future announcements.
Currently under development for eventual commercial deployment in the estimated 85 million commercial buildings and detached homes in America, SolarWindow™ is the subject of forty-two (42) patent filings and is the world’s first-of-its-kind see-through technology capable of generating electricity on glass windows and flexible plastics; and a planned ‘building integrated photovoltaic’ (BIPV) technology. BIPV products are expected to achieve compound annualized growth of 41%-plus through 2016, according to Pike Research.
