With researchers working to come up with solar-panel fenestration, the NET 'SolarWindow' succeeds by using the method of external application.
With a cutting-edge spray-on system, New Energy Technologies Inc. has devised a way of applying solar cells in an ultra-thin blanket to the outside of skyscraper windows, without compromising full transparent visibility. The NET 'SolarWindow' could save a 40-storey curtain-wall structure $40 to $70 thousand each year in electrical bills.
