RSI PV-Window Featuring at ISPBC Showcase at Retech

Date: 21 September 2011
WASHINGTON, Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rainbow Solar Inc. (RSI) and International Self-Powered Building Council (ISPBC) showcase the PV-Window (PVW) for the next generation green building, SPB (Self-Powered Building), at the renewable energy technology trade show and conference Retech in Washington D.

C., September 20-22, 2011.

The featured type-1 RSI PVW which has been in production and in high demand since 2008, is a multi-tier window system with transparent thin-film coating that enables the window to generate electricity while reducing heat transfer up to 90%. Since energy leaks out mostly through windows, the PVW can save more than 65% in air-conditioning bills in the summer and in heating costs in the winter.

The RSI photovoltaic window is a catalyst to Building 2.0 with an intelligent energy storage and management system (iConnet). Building 2.0 (SPB) is a power generating, energy-efficient and economically superior 2nd generation building with a sophisticated approach to urban design. It is like living in your own power-station where electricity is produced exactly where it is needed. 

SPBs increase and preserve property value, reduce total cost of ownership, lower operating costs, assure higher occupation rates, provide longer lifespan for the building with healthy indoor air free of germs and VOCs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and make building owners/occupants exempt to future energy price increases.

Unlike the 1st generation approach to RE economy which is collapsing because of highly speculative valuations, Building 2.0 is a bankable and insurable investment that invigorates the economy, creates jobs, accelerates investments in new technology with opportunities for new companies and it guarantees better energy security.

International Self-Powered Building Council (ISPBC) is dedicated to advance, develop and drive Self-Powered Building (SPB) innovations and practices with a global action plan. ISPBC offers fully integrated solutions on a practical level including complete technology resources, products, knowledge, software, financial and business models.

Rainbow Solar Inc. (RSI) is a privately-held company with manufacturing and R&D facilities in Vancouver, California, EU and Asia regions. Divisions:  RSi-ENERGY (Energy), a FiT-SPS developer, with 2009 capacity of 200MW in EU under development; RSi-SOLAR (Technology): RSi grid-class photovoltaic products including PV-Glass-Windows and 350W Super-PV; DSO-BIPV (Designer BIPV) to provide turnkey designer BIPV solutions to architects and builders.
