Energy Firm Patents ‘Spray-On’ Solar Technology

solar windowNew Energy Technologies says it has achieved 21 new patent filings for protection of its SolarWindow technology, which is capable of generating electricity on glass and flexible plastics.

The company says its technology has the capacity to turn ordinary glass windows in America’s five million skyscrapers and commercial towers into power generators.

The technology is able to generate electricity on various surfaces when electricity-generating coatings are sprayed on or otherwise applied at room temperature to glass and plastics.

SolarWindow generates solar electricity and remains see-through on glass windows and plastics similar to commercially-available window tint films.

While most conventional PV systems rely on near direct exposure to natural sunlight, New Energy says its SolarWindow technology can also use artificial light energy, such as fluorescent lighting typical in office buildings, as well as natural light energy to generate electricity, and is capable of producing electricity with indirect or low-light conditions.

SolarWindow can be applied to all four sides of a building, including shaded areas, and operate during varying weather.

New Energy’s patent filings include a combination of US and international jurisdictions, and cover various methods, materials, and product implementations.
