SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. , the leading developer of first-of-its-kind transparent electricity-generating coatings for glass and flexible plastics, today announced it has named Patrick Sargent as its Vice President of Product Development and Engineering.

In this position, Sargent will use his knowledge and insight of the glass and photovoltaic (PV) industries to guide the scale-up and pre-industrial processing of SolarWindow™ technologies necessary for commercialization.

“One of the most impressive features about SolarWindow™ is how it’s being developed for direct integration with existing fabrication and glass manufacturing processes using high speed and large area coating methods,” said Sargent.

“Manufacturability is one of the technology’s most compelling features, and is a real competitive edge in this market. SolarWindow™ liquid coatings can be applied onto glass at high speeds and at large scale.”In addition to targeting new installations, the company recently announced that its products are being developed as transparent, tinted, flexible veneers that installers can apply directly over top of existing windows on tall towers and skyscrapers.This expanded product line broadens the company’s market reach beyond new and replacement installations. Currently, there are an estimated five million commercial buildings constructed in the U.S. alone.

Sargent joins the company following the appointment of former Duke Energy veteran and power grid expert, Curtis Watkins, as Vice President of Energy Markets and Utilities.

“Mr. Sargent’s addition to our team helps us develop and refine our production processes to demonstrate seamless integration of our product with glass manufacturing and chemical coatings industry methods,” said John A. Conklin, President and CEO, SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. “Mr. Sargent’s industrial know-how is especially valuable to our company as we develop strategic commercial partnerships and advance our go-to-market strategy.”

Sargent previously served at Asahi Glass Company, a $10 billion international glass producer, as Photovoltaics Cover Technology Leader for its North American Solar Business Unit. He also worked at technology giants Lucent Technologies and Fujitsu Network Communications.

A mechanical engineer, Mr. Patrick T. Sargent earned his Mechanical and Industrial Engineering undergraduate degrees from Georgia Tech University and subsequently his MBA at Kennesaw State University. He is a charter member and board member of the Tennessee chapter of SEIA and a member of GSEA and GANA, where he often entertains speaking engagements. He holds certifications with Six Sigma and the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP).
