Video: In the Lab with SolarWindow Technologies, Inc.

This comes just weeks after SolarWindow announced it had entered into Phase III of its longstanding Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with NREL, one of the most respected and advanced solar-photovoltaic research institutions in the world.

COLUMBIA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: WNDW), the leading developer of electricity-generating transparent coatings for glass and flexible plastics, released today ‘behind the scenes' video of its collaborative research and development taking place at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).


This comes just weeks after SolarWindow announced it had entered into Phase III of its longstanding Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with NREL, one of the most respected and advanced solar-photovoltaic research institutions in the world.

The video features footage of NREL and SolarWindow scientists applying transparent electricity-generating SolarWindow™ coatings, utilizing NREL's state-of-the-art manufacturing and testing equipment located in the Process Development and Integration Lab (PDIL). In the short presentation is SolarWindow Principal Scientist, Dr. Scott Hammond, and NREL scientist, Dr. Scott Mauger, applying electricity-generating coatings to glass; and Dr. Hammond and NREL Research Associate Talysa Stockert coating and inspecting a SolarWindow™ module in a glovebox.

"Now that we've kicked off CRADA Phase III for the development of SolarWindow™ products, we are excited to provide a look inside NREL during a few of our fabrication processes to reveal some of our innovative development work," said John A. Conklin, President and CEO of SolarWindow.

SolarWindow™ coatings are under development for transparent glass windows for tall towers and skyscrapers. SolarWindow™ modeling shows that its technology achieves the industry's fastest published financial payback of less than one year as validated by a team of independent engineers and scientists at the University of North Carolina Charlotte Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (UNCC-EPIC).

SolarWindow™ independently validated modeling also shows SolarWindow outperforms rooftop solar technologies by generating 50-times more energy due to its ability to cover large glass surfaces on a tall tower or skyscraper. It also achieves 15 times the environmental benefit compared to traditional solar power generation technologies.

About SolarWindow Technologies, Inc.

SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. is a developer of next generation, transparent electricity-generating SolarWindow™ coatings.

SolarWindow™ coatings generate electricity on see-through glass and flexible plastics with colored tints popular to skyscraper glass. Unlike conventional systems, SolarWindow™ can be applied to all four sides of tall towers, generating electricity using natural and artificial light conditions and even shaded areas. SolarWindow™ uses organic materials, which are dissolved into liquid, ideal for low-cost high-output manufacturing; and is the subject of a patent pending technology.

The company's Proprietary Power Production & Financial Model (Power & Financial Model) uses photovoltaic (PV) modeling calculations that are consistent with renewable energy practitioner standards for assessing, evaluating and estimating renewable energy for a PV project. The Power & Financial Model estimator takes into consideration building geographic location, solar radiation for flat-plate collectors (SolarWindow™ irradiance is derated to account for 360 degree building orientation and vertical installation), climate zone energy use and generalized skyscraper building characteristics when estimating PV power and energy production, and carbon dioxide equivalents. Actual power, energy production and carbon dioxide equivalents modeled may vary based upon building-to-building situational characteristics and varying installation methodologies.

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
