See-Through Solar

Sep 15, 2021

See-Through Solar Windows are a mainstay of all buildings other than bunkers. Renewable energy sources such as solar are becoming mainstays of all new and many existing buildings. There is a way for these two to work together. Traditional solar panels use photovoltaic cells to absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity, offering the promise of clean, renewable energy. However, conventional solar cells are opaque, limiting their use to only a few specific applications, such as roof top solar systems or large solar farms. Ubiquitous Energy has expanded what’s possible in photovoltaic technology. It says it has engineered solar cells to selectively transmit visible light while absorbing and converting invisible ultraviolet and infrared light into electricity. The result allows windows to convert ambient light into useful electricity without impacting aesthetics or performance. In the Ubiquitous technology, a thin coating is applied to the surface of window glass to provide electricity generation while maintaining the look of a traditional window. The Ubiquitous solar technology selectively captures ultraviolet and infrared light while allowing visible light through, allowing windows to be both transparent and efficient. A cross-section of the application in a dual-pane window shows how the space between panes is used for the wiring and the glaze is applied to the inside of the outward facing pane. In some applications, the electricity that is generated can be used entirely within the window to power electronic features such as sensors or in other applications can be fed into the building’s electricity grid. In the first case, there is no difference in the installation of a transparent solar window versus a traditional window; there is no electrical wiring required. In the second case, the wiring and electronics are very similar to that of conventional rooftop solar, where excess power can be electrically connected to an energy management system, electronic controls, and energy storage like batteries. This generated electricity can be used to directly power smart features and/or be fed back to the electrical grid via electrical wiring that is routed and hidden within the window frames. Recently, Ubiquitous Energy and Antamex Industries agreed to form a partnership to bring transparent solar glazing to the commercial glazing market in North America. This partnership is based on the strategic alignment of the two companies: UE is focused on seamlessly integrating transparent solar renewable energy technology into everyday products and surfaces, without aesthetic compromises while Antamex has a portfolio of new construction and retrofit commercial glazing projects and have customers that are looking for ways to make their glazing more energy efficient without sacrificing appearance or performance.
