SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: WNDW), on February 7, 2017, was named as a winner in the 2017 BIG Innovations Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group (http://nnw.fm/c52RE), an organization of business executives who utilize a proprietary formula to recognize superior performance. The company is a technology firm that develops transparent, electricity-generating coatings for windows on tall towers. Its product was one of only four named a ‘shining star’ of innovation and a Chairman’s Choice winner.
The coatings supplied by SolarWindow Technologies, Inc. have the potential to turn a skyscraper into a ‘clean power generator’, the company announced. Its veneers can generate electricity using either natural or artificial light, in shaded areas, and even reflected and diffused light. They can be applied to all sides of a tall building, and they’re capable of realizing electricity savings of up to 50% annually, the company said, noting that it could return a one-year financial payback. This potential return was validated by independent engineering studies, according to SolarWindow.
The coatings are designed to produce electricity through transparent and organic photovoltaic (PV) coatings applied to the glass and flexible plastic for applications to tall buildings. As a result, normally passive windows are transformed into electricity producers. The potential one-year payback has been seen on a 50-story building. The company’s technology can also provide more than 15 times the environmental benefits of a conventional solar rooftop PV system.
In a news release, Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group, said, “We are thrilled to be honoring SolarWindow as they are leading by example and making real progress on improving the daily lives of so many.”
John A. Conklin, president and CEO of SolarWindow, added, “We are honored to be recognized by this distinguished panel of business leaders for our work in developing possibly the biggest single breakthrough in clean energy — converting the solar rays of the sun into electricity on skyscrapers the world over.”
