What makes our LiquidElectricity™ coatings so good?

Earth-abundant raw materials, ideal for high throughput production.

SolarWindow™ products are created by applying ultra-thin layers of our LiquidElectricity™ coatings on to glass and flexible plastics to form small solar cells. When grouped, these cells are called “strings” or “arrays”, and their arrangement in our final product is generically referred to as an “organic photovoltaic” (OPV) solar array.

Importantly, our liquid coatings are primarily made of earth abundant materials that do not contain toxic metals like Lead, Cadmium, Selenium, or Chromium.

What makes our LiquidElectricity™ coatings so powerful?

We use organic materials (polymers) which are dissolved into liquid form.  We apply these liquids to surfaces such as flexible plastics and glass to produce see-through products which generate electricity.

Here’s how our approach works:

Applying our LiquidElectricity™ coatings  onto glass surfaces makes our technology ideally suited for high speed roll-to-roll and sheet-to-sheet manufacturing. High-speed manufacturing techniques typically result in lower production costs.

Our LiquidElectricity™ coatings are able to be produced in a color wheel of architecturally-aesthetic varieties while remaining see-through. Conventional solar PV modules are not produced this way.

The result?

When applied to glass, our LiquidElectricity™ coatings appear with a pleasant neutral color and tint. They are aesthetically appealing and not disruptive to the eye, seemingly passive. SolarWindow™ products capture energy from the sun and other light sources while generating valuable electricity.

But, how does this compare to today’s solar?

In comparison to conventional crystalline and thin-film PV (Conventional Solar PV) technologies, our LiquidElectricity™ coatings have numerous advantages:

  1. Designed to generate electricity on glass, enhancing the performance of today’s typically insulated commercial and residential windows. (Conventional Solar PV).
  2. See-through, with high level of ‘visible light transmission.’ Conventional solar PV is not see-through.
  3. Able to generate significant electricity from natural, artificial or even in shaded low light conditions. Conventional Solar PV does not work in artificial, shaded, or low light.

Other flexible thin film solar materials such as Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS), or Cadmium Telluride (CdTe), requires expensive high-vacuum and high-temperature processing equipment, are thick, and typically impossible to see through when compared to SolarWindow™.

What's our secret to outperforming rooftop solar by 50-fold?

Works in natural, shaded, low light, and even indoor light.

SolarWindow™ products can be applied to all four sides of tall towers, generating electricity using natural, shaded low light, and even artificial light. Conventional crystalline solar cells simply do not work in shaded areas or perform under artificial light and can only be mounted on very limited rooftop space of a tall tower.

The result? SolarWindow™ can outperform today’s solar by as much as 50-fold when modeled for a 50 story building, according to independently validated power production calculations.

Based on power and financial modeling with SolarWindow™ installed on a 50-story building. See disclaimer here.

What's Our Secret?

Look up along the sides of any of todayʼs tall towers or skyscrapers and youʼll see glass, lots of glass.

Our secret is the application of LiquidElectricity™ coatings to the many acres of window glass on a tall tower, turning an entire building into a source of clean, renewable energy.

Conventional solar systems cannot be applied to the facade or in place of windows of a building without blocking your vision from inside the building. The small rooftop area that is available for conventional solar PV is often crowded with service systems such as heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and elevators. These spaces are also expected to offer tenant-amenities such as rooftop gardens and pools, and other large-footprint features that prohibit conventional solar PV installations.

Traditional solar also performs poorly under indirect sunlight. SolarWindow™ applications on all sides of a tower becomes a clean power-generator, an advantage over conventional solar PV.

Importantly, our engineers have designed and tested SolarWindow™ to generate electricity from artificial light such as the fluorescent systems found inside offices, schools, and commercial buildings. Todayʼs conventional crystalline or thin-film solar PV systems do not perform well indoors or under artificial light.
