PowerWindows are patented and transparent double-paned windows that convert light into electricity. Conventional glass reflects about 30% of the incoming light, we instead collect that with our coating, transport it through the glass and convert it into electricity with solar cells inside the window frame.
In Europe governmental regulations have dictated that every commercial and governmental building construction or renovation has to be energy neutral by 2020. Given the fact average lead-time of such projects is 3-4 years, this is something commercial real estate developers are confronted with today.
Conventional solar panels are limited to the roof or have to be installed off-site. Alternatives are either too intrusive or too costly. PHYSEE’s PowerWindow is the first scalable and cost- efficient solution using the world’s glass to help make these buildings energy neutral.
