TECHNOLOGY

TRANSPARENT SOLAR TECHNOLOGY

Patented Chemistry

Fully Transparent

Power Generating

Traditional solar panels use photovoltaic cells to absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity, offering the promise of clean, renewable energy. While useful, conventional solar cells are opaque, limiting their use to only a few specific applications, such as roof top solar systems or large solar farms.

With our patented technology, Ubiquitous Energy has expanded what’s possible in photovoltaic technology. We’ve engineered our solar cells to selectively transmit visible light, what we see, while absorbing and converting invisible ultraviolet and infrared light into electricity. This makes Ubiquitous Energy™ technology the first truly transparent solar technology, allowing windows to convert ambient light into useful electricity without impacting aesthetics or performance.

APPLICATION

COMMERCIAL GLASS

The push for greener buildings presents challenges for builders and developers alike. With commercial buildings accounting for nearly 40 percent of the world’s total energy consumption, UE windows make aggressive carbon-neutral goals achievable for both new and existing structures.

To building occupants, UE windows have the clear, vibrant experience that is expected from traditional windows. To building administrators and developers, they are a powerful new tool in the quest for optimal energy use.

RESIDENTIAL WINDOWS

 

Ubiquitous Energy powers the undetectable anchor for the smart home industry: the smart window. UE’s residential windows are a new product category, windows with on-board solar power to drive a variety of functions.

The on-board power platform seamlessly integrates with a plethora of smart home devices and other electronics throughout the home, all while maintaining complete continuity with traditional residential windows, both in terms of visual aesthetic and low-E functionality.

FUTURE APPLICATIONS


Ubiquitous Energy envisions a world where every surface, no matter how large or small, can generate electricity without compromising aesthetics using truly transparent photovoltaic technology. We see endless possibilities, applying our proprietary coating to consumer electronics, transportation vehicles, and even greenhouses. Any product that requires electricity can benefit from transparent solar, and as more high-quality, smart devices are adopted, the more opportunity we have to become less reliant on outside power sources. The possibilities are truly ubiquitous.

EXAMPLE INSTALLATIONS

Ubiquitous Energy is thrilled to highlight a variety of its installation projects around the world-a major company commercialization milestone. In its mission to seamlessly integrate solar technology into everyday products, Ubiquitous Energy has moved one step closer to a world where every surface can generate electricity without compromising appearance. Ubiquitous Energy remains committed to innovative engineering, enabling windows that harvest solar energy to produce electricity while maintaining traditional window aesthetics and performance. Transparent solar window installations like those highlighted here offset a building’s electricity consumption and lead to a more sustainable future.

INSTALLATION AT UBIQUITOUS ENERGY HQTIONS

REDWOOD CITY CA

Exterior View

Interior View

Ubiquitous Energy installed the world’s first truly transparent solar window façade at its headquarters in Redwood City, CA. Replacing single-pane windows, UE integrated approximately 100 square feet of transparent solar windows as an exterior facing façade. While generating renewable energy, this installation maintains high transparency, color neutrality, and aesthetics of traditional low emissivity (low-E) windows. Electricity produced by the windows is used to power the LED overhead lighting in its adjacent room, all while maintaining the same look and performance as standard commercial window glass.

INSTALLATION AT NSG PILKINGTON FACILITY

NORTHWOOD, OH

The NSG (Nippon Sheet Glass, Co. Ltd.) facility in Northwood, Ohio has installed Ubiquitous Energy’s transparent solar technology as windows in its front entry façade. The UE Power™ windows collect and transmit electricity, which is then transferred and stored in a battery. Northwood’s installation logs and monitors environmental conditions such as light exposure and temperature in addition to power generation, attributes that in the future can be used to inform how to best offset building energy consumption.
