New Energy Unveils SolarWindow™ Technology

New Energy Technologies Inc. in Burtonsville, Md., has debuted its proprietary SolarWindow™ technology, which it says is capable of transforming glass into an electricity-generating window.

Electrical power is generated on glass when New Energy’s coatings are sprayed onto surfaces using commercially available equipment. This patent-pending process enables researchers to spray SolarWindow™ coatings onto glass at room temperature, eliminating high-temperature or high-vacuum production methods typically used by current solar manufacturers. These solar coatings are less than 1/10 the thickness of thin films and make use of the world’s smallest functional solar cells, shown to successfully produce electricity in a published peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy of the American Institute of Physics.
