World Change Alert! Windows And Walls That Harvest Energy (Video)
Categories: Solar Power
ENERGYGLASS™ is the only Optically Clear Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) Window System in the World.
Features: Produces continuous Energy from Direct Sunlight, Reflected Sunlight, and Ambient Light, and offers a 100% field of vision. The entire surface of the windows is clear – No grids, dots or lines! Because it is optically clear, it could be used in automobiles, naval vessels, etc. This proprietary Inorganic Nano Technology and Solar Collector does not degrade from IR like typical solar cells or thin film technologies do.
Produces 1-2 watts per sq. ft. per hour for 10-12 hours during the day and 3-4 watts at peak dependent on location, size, orientation, thickness and formula. Energy generated can be inverted back to the grid, battery back up or direct to DC equipment! This means a FEED In Tariff opportunity could be available, thus generating revenue from your windows and/or reducing your building’s energy consumption.
A building that is retrofitted with ENERGYGLASS™ may receive what was once allocated only to solar installations through a 30% ITC tax credit that has been extended to the year 2020. Builders and retrofits can also take advantage of local FEED-in Tarrifs, an ongoing revenue stream from the windows of the building.
ENERGYGLASS™ is a breakthrough in Energy Generation coupled with a Capital Improvement item that every building has to have - WINDOWS - the Vertical component of every building now not only can generate energy but as a Vertical Solar Farm is eligible from anywhere 10-15 different Federal grants, Tax credits, subsidies, incentives and LEED Points that can reduce your investment, energy consumption, and generate an on going new stream of revenue!
The Installation of EnergyGlass™ is exceedingly field friendly and is similar in nature to installation of normal laminated glass. EnergyGlass™ can incorporate many types of different glass and makeups inclusive of tints, Low E, insulated, SAFGLAS IR film, reflective, glass ceramic and most other types and makeups.
ENERGYGLASS™ uses inorganic nano particles that are co-infused in a polycarbonate inner layer, which is then laminated between two panes of 1/4" inch glass. The nano particles redirect components of the light spectrum to the edge of the glass while letting most of the spectrum through. The light that reaches the edge of the glass is collected and sent to patented edge frame collectors. Because our edge collectors are at the edge of our glass and actually fit inside the frame or curtain wall. They are protected and do not suffer degradation from IR as typical solar cell installations do.
With more than 5 million existing mid-rise / high-rise buildings in the U.S. alone that need to be retrofitted with this technology, and all new high-rise and mid-rise building construction can be fitted with ENERGYGLASS™ and Energy Wall™ products, there is endless work to be done, all to the benefit of future generations, but it is now within reach with a goal in sight that the energy needed for every town could be produced by basic construction concepts taking shape with these developments.
Art Marino has his demo-room outfitted with the technology (video originally filmed in 2012), and there is enough material in existence to begin pilot projects. We are interested in hearing from glass laminators who would like to retrofit their operations to facilitate Energy Glass. Also those interested in licensing opportunities, please send an email to email@example.com to be added to correspondence.
The parent company, Saf-glas has been in the threat resistance glass business since 1992. Energy Glass represents years of experience in the industry and continuous and ongoing research and development. All of their core product may now be made to produce energy.
This is the power plant of the next generation: No Strings Required ;)
