New Energy Technologies at Advanced Energy 2013 Conf.: Presented SolarWindow™ Technology

Published on 2013-05-20. Author : SpecialChem

COLUMBIA, MD and NEW York -- New Energy Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: NENE) presented at the Advanced Energy 2013 Conference held on May 1st, 2013 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, NY.

New Energy's Vice President of Business & Technology Development, Mr. J. Patrick Thompson, presented his and the Company perspectives on improving building efficiency and energy autonomy, and an overview of SolarWindow™, a first-of-its-kind technology being developed to enable see-through windows to generate electricity, during the Advanced Photovoltaics-Technology session scheduled for 3:45 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1st.

Hosted by the Advanced Energy Research & Technology Center, providing innovative energy research, education, and technology deployment, the two-day event featured keynote addresses and informational sessions focusing on every sector of the energy industry, with special emphasis on several key areas: smart grid, solar, offshore and onshore wind, battery and energy storage and energy cyber-security. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a longtime proponent of energy efficiency and sustainability, and Richard Kaufman, the nationally-prominent energy policy expert recently appointed Energy Chairman for New York State, was the Keynote Speaker.

New Energy Technologies has achieved multiple breakthroughs in developing organic photovoltaic technologies to create electricity-generating, semi-transparent SolarWindow™ coatings, which will generate electricity on see-through windows. The patent-pending SolarWindow™ technology utilizes an organic solar array composed of ultra-small solar cells. These cells are fabricated using mostly hydrogen-carbon based materials.

Currently under development for eventual commercial deployment in the estimated 85 million commercial buildings and homes in America, SolarWindow™ technology is the subject of fourteen (14) patent filings and is the world's first-of-its-kind technology capable of generating electricity on see-through glass windows. The importance of building integrated PV brings focus to the importance of deploying SolarWindow because "building-integrated and building-applied PV are set to achieve a compound annual growth rate of at least 41 per cent through 2016."

New Energy Technologies, Inc. is positioning itself and SolarWindow™ to becoming the standard for advanced window technology for high performance office buildings and skyscrapers. The replacement or retrofit of the current stock of windows with the advanced SolarWindow™ may result in an energy offset contribution to the overall energy equation.

The conference is organized by the Advanced Energy Research & Technology Center, a partnership of academic institutions, energy providers and industrial corporations dedicated to innovative energy research, education and technology deployment.
