Columbia, MD, November 18, 2013 – New Energy Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: NENE) has been accepted to present at IDTechEx’s fifth annual Energy Harvesting and Storage USA 2013 conference, the world’s largest conference on Energy Harvesting and Storage applications and technologies. The conference will be held November 20th-21st, with Masterclass presentations on the 19th and 22nd, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Dr. Scott Hammond, New Energy’s Principal Scientist, will present an overview of:
- The Company’s latest developments of the world’s first-of-its-kind, see-through technology capable of generating electricity on glass and flexible plastics on Wednesday, November 20th; and
- The market opportunities and technical considerations for semitransparent organic photovoltaic (ST OPV) devices in the Building Integrated and Building Applied PV (BIPV and BAPV) markets, along with discussing technical hurdles that must be addressed to unlock these growing markets on Friday, November 22nd in one of IDTechEx’s expert-led Masterclasses.
Dr. Hammond’s discussions will focus on organic photovoltaic (OPV) research and the use of transparent contacts that allow increased transparency, and improves power conversion efficiency and flexibility in semitransparent OPV devices. The basis for the research is the combining of transparent contacts with conductive substances and polymers to further enhance product durability and performance. Conventional photovoltaic PV and OPV devices typically utilize an opaque metal contact or transparent indium tin oxide (ITO), has low or no visible light transmission (transparency), exhibits low power due to high resistance, requires high-vacuum, high temperature processing, and/or has poor flexibility.
The transparent contact technologies incorporating conductive substances and polymers have the additional potential for lower-cost manufacturing, as they are fully solution-processable, allowing for a variety of application techniques, including roll-to-roll (R2R) and sheet-to-sheet (S2S) processing.
Currently under development for eventual commercial deployment in the estimated 85 million commercial buildings and homes in America, SolarWindow™ technology is the subject of forty two (42) patent filings and is the world’s first-of-its-kind technology capable of generating electricity on see-through glass windows. New Energy Technologies, Inc. is positioning itself and SolarWindow™ to becoming the standard for advanced window technology for high performance office buildings and skyscrapers. The importance of building integrated PV brings focus to the importance of deploying SolarWindow because “building-integrated and building-applied PV are set to achieve a compound annual growth rate of at least 41 per cent through 2016.”
The Energy Harvesting and Storage USA 2013 Conference will have Application and Technology focus areas, as well as a Tradeshow, Company Visits, and the Masterclasses. The Conference is co-located with IDTechEx’s Printed Electronics USA 2013. IDTechEx also offers independent market research, business intelligence and advice on emerging technologies to companies across the value chain, supporting them in making essential strategic business decisions.

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.
