The creation of world’s smallest known organic solar cells, measuring less than ¼ the size of a grain of rice, has enabled New Energy Technologies to bring the first-of-its-kind SolarWindow technology close to reality. The revolutionary solar cells, developed by the University of South Florida researcher Dr. Xiaomei Jiang, generate usable electricity from both natural and artificial light sources for homes, offices and commercial buildings. The see-through glass could be coated with SolarWindow coatings at room temperatures using commercially available technologies.
Mr. Meetesh V. Patel, President and CEO of New Energy Technologies, Inc., says…
It’s very exciting to see that our ongoing research has led to several significant breakthroughs with transparency and the production of electricity on see-thru glass. For the first time ever, these advances have allowed us to develop an early-scale working prototype of the technology, which I very much look forward to unveiling in the upcoming weeks.
