SolarWindow™ can generate electricity for 85 million homes and commercial buildings in America.
SolarWindow™ modules are created by applying ultra-thin layers of liquid coatings on to glass and flexible plastics. These liquid coatings produce ultra-small solar cells and form groups called ‘arrays’. Because of the family of materials used and the way in which it is incorporated into existing architectural glass, SolarWindow™ is generically referred to as an ‘organic photo-voltaic solar array’ (OPV).
Importantly, SolarWindow™ liquid coatings are primarily made of hydrogen and carbon – two of the most abundant materials found in nature.
Engineered to outperform solar with the industry’s fastest financial payback. SolarWindow™ is Clearly Electric™.
To produce the equivalent amount of power with conventional solar systems would require at least 5-11 years for payback and at least 10-12 acres of valuable urban land.
Unlike the many acres of expensive downtown real estate required for solar array fields, SolarWindow™ systems can be installed on the readily-available vast window glass surfaces on tall towers and skyscrapers.
SolarWindow™ can be applied to all four sides of tall towers, generating electricity using natural, shaded, and even artificial light. Conventional solar simply does not work in shaded areas or perform under artificial light.
The result? SolarWindow™ can outperform today’s solar by as much as 50-fold when installed on a 50 story building, according to independently validated power production calculations.
ClearView Power™ Technology is a transparent solar cell that can coat any surface, including displays and windows, to harvest ambient light and generate electricity.
Clean, clear Ubiquitous Energy. Ubiquitous Energy is a Silicon Valley technology company leading the development of transparent photo-voltaic' with its award-winning ClearView Power™ technology—the world’s first truly transparent solar technology. With a mission to eliminate the battery life limitations of mobile devices and power smart glass for buildings, Ubiquitous Energy is implementing its ClearView Power technology into a wide range of products as an invisible, on board source of electricity.
ClearView Power technology is a thin film that covers the display area of electronic products—including wearable', tablets, internet-of-things devices, and digital signage—generating electricity to power these devices. True transparency is achieved by selectively transmitting light visible to the human eye, while converting invisible ultraviolet and near-infrared light into electricity. This allows these invisible films to be integrated directly into the surfaces of electronic products with no degradation of device function or display clarity. Among other applications, ClearView Power technology also serves as an invisible, power-producing coating for windows, providing an on board power source for electronic window functionality or to offset energy consumption in buildings.
Spun out of MIT, Ubiquitous Energy is producing highly transparent, efficient solar cells in its Silicon Valley pilot production facility in Redwood City, CA. Ubiquitous Energy has raised approximately $10 million to date and has won numerous awards for its business and technology, including the 2015 SID Display Week Innovation Award, National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer grants, a Fraunhofer-Techbridge U-Launch Award, a Mass CEC MTTC Catalyst Award, and the MIT Clean Energy Prize Renewable Category.
