We have developed transparent solar technology that enables glass façades to generate their own electricity to offset general building energy usage and power onboard smart features within the façade itself. This truly transparent solar coating has been developed together with the glass industry to selectively convert ultraviolet and infrared light into electricity and simultaneously block transmission of unwanted solar heat, all while selectively transmitting visible light and retaining the look and performance of low-E glass. We have now produced and installed this technology into pilot façade installations in a variety of buildings that monitor and use the generated electricity. We have also developed prototype units where the energy is used to power smart features within the window or façade itself, including mechanization, sensors, and security features. Here we will review the state of transparent solar technology, glass unit and façade construction considerations, installation examples, and cases studies.
