SolarWindow Technologies, Inc., the leading developer of electricity-generating transparent coatings for glass and flexible plastics, released a behind the scenes video of its collaborative research and development.

SolarWindow Technologies, Inc., the leading developer of electricity-generating transparent coatings for glass and flexible plastics, released a behind the scenes video of its collaborative research and development taking place at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

This comes just weeks after SolarWindow announced it had entered into Phase III of its longstanding Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with NREL, one of the most respected and advanced solar-photovoltaic research institutions in the world.

The video features footage of NREL and SolarWindow scientists applying transparent electricity-generating SolarWindow™ coatings, utilizing NREL’s state-of-the-art manufacturing and testing equipment located in the Process Development and Integration Lab (PDIL). In the short presentation is SolarWindow Principal Scientist, Dr. Scott Hammond, and NREL scientist, Dr. Scott Mauger, applying electricity-generating coatings to glass; and Dr. Hammond and NREL Research Associate Talysa Stockert coating and inspecting a SolarWindow™ module in a glovebox.

SolarWindow™ coatings are under development for transparent glass windows for tall towers and skyscrapers. SolarWindow™ modeling shows that its technology achieves the industry’s fastest published financial payback of less than one year as validated by a team of independent engineers and scientists at the University of North Carolina Charlotte Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (UNCC-EPIC).

SolarWindow™ independently validated modeling also shows SolarWindow outperforms rooftop solar technologies by generating 50-times more energy due to its ability to cover large glass surfaces on a tall tower or skyscraper. It also achieves 15 times the environmental benefit compared to traditional solar power generation technologies.
