Columbia, MD – July 30, 2015 – SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: WNDW) will host a special webcast – SolarWindow™: Power Reinvented – on August 20, 2015 where, for the first time ever, participants will learn exactly how and when the company plans to bring to market its record-setting transparent electricity-generating windows for commercial skyscrapers and towers. Commercial buildings account for nearly 40 percent of all electricity consumed in the U.S. in 2014.
“…SolarWindow could give our cities the ability to harvest their own energy needs.”
(CNBC: Industrial Revolutions)
Engineers envision installing SolarWindow™ products on skyscrapers and tall towers, when commercialized.
“Our technology boasts a calculated and validated financial payback of less than one year, when modeled for a 50 story building, and shows 50 times more energy output than conventional rooftop solar power systems, according to the company’s validated power model,” said Mr. John Conklin, President & CEO, SolarWindow Technologies, Inc.
Your Opportunity to Ask How SolarWindow™ Products Are Coming to Market
The company’s scheduled webcast is an online town-hall style forum led by Mr. Conklin. He will present the commercialization plan for SolarWindow™ products and address participant questions.
This moderated webcast will also feature SolarWindow and industry experts candidly discussing the company’s technology objectives, commercialization path, recent technological advances, logistical challenges, and breakthroughs.
Important questions that explain how SolarWindow™ products are coming to market include:
What is SolarWindow and how does it work? Can this technology achieve a commercially-viable 25 year warranty?
- Dr. Scott Hammond is Principal Scientist at SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. and the leading developer of SolarWindow™ systems. Dr. Hammond brings extensive experience to the company from all areas of Organic Photovoltaics (OPV). He is currently a member of the American Chemical Society and the Materials Research Society, and a Sigma-Aldrich Global Advisor.
What is the glass industry’s perception of SolarWindow™? How can you be certain that commercial glass companies will be able to manufacture SolarWindow™ products?
- Mr. Patrick Sargent brings us extensive experience with glass and energy. Patrick gained invaluable insights into the manufacture and use of glass for solar and photovoltaic energy applications at Asahi Glass, a $16 billion international glass producer where he served as Photovoltaics Cover Technology Leader for its North American Solar Business Unit. He previously worked at technology giants, Lucent Technologies and Fujitsu Network Communications, and now owns Corona Solar Group, LLC, a solar power development firm specializing in solar design, engineering, and project development of solar and renewable projects.
How exactly do SolarWindow™ systems achieve a one-year financial payback? Is this really possible?
- Mr. Kenneth Schuckers, CPA, has contributed important energy and corporate tax know-how to development of the SolarWindow™ Financial Model. Ken has 20-plus years of corporate tax experience with over a decade focused on R&D and other federal tax credits and incentives. His credentials include Deloitte & Touche, LLP (Corporate Tax Services), and Partner at Grant Thornton, LLP (R&D and Section 199 Practice Leader).
How will America’s utilities embrace an energy solution as innovative as SolarWindow™? If SolarWindow™ products power skyscrapers, doesn’t this hurt utility companies?
- Mr. Curtis Watkins is an expert in evaluating, advancing, and integrating emerging technologies at America’s largest electric power holding company, Duke Energy. He is well versed in the regulated utility and municipality code enforcement industries.
How does SolarWindow Technologies work with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA)? Are there technology goals outlined in a CRADA? What technical capabilities does NREL offer in the development of solar photovoltaic technologies, generally?
- Dr. Maikel van Hest is a Senior Scientist in the thin film and processing group within the National Center for Photovoltaics at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). He specializes in materials science and scaling of photovoltaics using atmospheric processing approaches. He works alongside SolarWindow Technologies’ Principal Scientist, Dr. Scott Hammond, to support the development of SolarWindow™ modules. Dr. van Hest is the PV thrust leader for the Solar Energy Research Institute between India and the United States (SERIIUS).
“SolarWindow is hosting this milestone event with distinguished guest panelists because we have reached a point in time where we can now confidently share how we plan to bring our history-making products to market,” said Mr. Conklin.
Patent-pending SolarWindow™ products are under development for the estimated 85 million commercial buildings and detached homes in the United States.

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.
