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.

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. and offers a value added solution for power independence from the main electrical.

Looking at modern construction features in honor of Lt. Arnie Wolff
I read the article and much is true, but where I find some issue is where the author digresses into the flow path aspect. I find that it is important to note that while smoke did fill the floor, the fire itself was located in an area with no windows, a single door (which FF…

Going Interior? Keep the door closed until you make the push!
Nicely analysed John. Notice at 3.02 that the flame issuing from the front windows was right down to the bottom of the opening indicating that these were all functioning as exhaust outlets. Which means that there must be other openings that are serving as the inlets on side B,C,D. The front door showed a bi-directional…
