A fully transparent, energy-generating window featuring UE Power™, Ubiquitous Energy's transparent photovoltaic technology was recently installed at the NSG facility in Northwood, Ohio. This building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) technology transforms an average window into a solar cell that generates electricity.

NSG Group previously announced in May 2019 a joint development agreement between its subsidiary (Pilkington North America) and Ubiquitous Energy (UE), a  leader in transparent solar technology, to jointly develop transparent solar windows.

UE’s transparent photovoltaic coating adds an invisible element of power generation by capturing non-visible wavelengths and creating a window that acts as a photovoltaic cell without obstructing the view. UE Power™ collects and transmits electricity through an onboard system built discreetly into the window frame. The collected electricity is then transferred to a battery capable of powering a variety of products and increasing the overall energy efficiency of a building. These windows can be used in addition to solar cells on a rooftop, as they exponentially increase the area available for power generation on a large building by enabling the full facade to collect energy.
