SolarWindow Technologies has announced that it has set a new company performance record for power efficiency with a 34 percent increase in performance over previous generations of its transparent electricity-generating glass.

This announcement is based on results of independent testing and certification of SolarWindow devices by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Device Performance Measurement Laboratory.

This 34 percent increase in power over previous SolarWindow performance records, represents a breakthrough for the company’s transparent electricity-generating glass, which when fabricated into windows, could turn entire buildings into vertical power generators.

Targeting the estimated 5.6 million U.S. commercial buildings, which consume almost $150 billion in electricity annually, the company’s transparent electricity-generating windows could reduce energy costs by up to 50%, according to independently-validated company power and financial modeling.

The company estimates that the market for SolarWindow glass products for tall towers and skyscrapers represents a $100 billion opportunity.

Mr. John Conklin, President and CEO of SolarWindow Technologies, Inc., said, “Achieving a 34% power boost from our new record-setting transparent electricity-generating glass is a major inflection point for our company and our collaborating partners.”

Conklin further said, “One of our ongoing, long-term product development objectives has been dedicated to developing improved electricity-generating coatings by enhancing performance. We’ll continue working hard to improve performance during product development.”

Commercial partnerships and collaborations with industry leaders allow SolarWindow to augment its in-house team with hundreds of collaborative world-class scientists, skilled technicians, and seasoned production staff and managers, who bring high-volume manufacturing, industrial, engineering and technical expertise.
