Technology Description

Our technology is the first demonstration of dynamic photovoltaic glass. The product is a highly transparent coating that responds to solar illumination by tinting to "switch" the coating into a photovoltaic device that efficiently harvests the sun's energy and simultaneously provides glare control for enhanced building efficiency and occupant comfort. The technology will revolutionize buildings by transforming them from significant energy sinks into a source of clean renewable energy.
