Solar Glass

What is Energy Glass?

Energyglass is a transparent, added passive glass system for the collection and production of electricity from light!

EnergyGlass™ is a transparent laminated glass system which can be simply integrated into most building window designs to produce electricity.

The EnergyGlass™ system continually collects and creates electricity from sunlight, diffused light and artificial light. DC electricity produced from EnergyGlass™ can be inverted and returned to the grid and / or charge batteries and / or be wired direct to DC electronics.

EnergyGlass™ is a patented transparent glass that offers a value added solution for power independence from the main electrical grid. EnergyGlass™ has the ability to produce ( 1 – 4) watts per square foot for up to 12 hours during the day (dependent on location). Installation of EnergyGlass™ is very field friendly and is similar in nature to installation of normal laminated glass. EnergyGlass™ can incorporate many types of different glass and makeups inclusive of tints, Low E, insulated, SAFGLAS IR film, reflective, glass ceramic and most other types and makeups.

EnergyGlass™ is designed for windows, doors, transoms, side lights, sky lights, glass rooms and any other design where transparency, protection and electrical production are mandated.

ENERGYGLASS™ is the only Optically Clear Building Integrated Photovoltaic Window System in the World.

ENERGYGLASS™ is a patented Optically Clear Vertical Building Photovoltaic Window System that produces continuous Energy from Sunlight, Diffused, Ambient Light and Ground Reflectance and the only 100% FIELD of VISION in the world. The entire surface of the windows is clear – No grids, dots or lines! This proprietary Inorganic Nano Technology and Solar Collector does not degrade from IR like typical solar cells, do.

ENERGYGLASS™ produces 1-2 watts per sq. ft. per hour for 10-12 hours during the day and 4-5 watts at peak dependent on location.  Energy generated can be inverted back to the grid, battery back up or direct to DC equipment! This means a FEED In Tariff opportunity could be available, thus generating revenue from your windows and/or reducing your building’s energy consumption.

How does it work? 

EnergyGlass™ is a patented transparent glass system that collects and produces energy from any light source and can be simply integrated into building window designs to produce electricity.

DC electricity produced from EnergyGlass™ can be inverted and returned to the grid and / or charge batteries and / or be wired direct to DC electronics. and offers a value added solution for power independence from the main electrical.

Just wanted to inform you of another hazard we are faced with in modern  green construction.
