Ubiquitous Energy is the world leader in transparent photovoltaics. The thin coating can be applied to the surface of windows glass to provide electricity generation and energy efficiency while remaining visibly indistinguishable.
Ubiquitous Energy is a Silicon Valley technology company with a rich history leading the development of next generation solar technologies. Born from research at MIT and Michigan State University, the company’s founders sought new ways to reduce humanity’s carbon footprint and founded the company on the principle of seamlessly integrating solar technology into everyday products and surfaces. This commitment resulted in our core technology: a transparent solar coating that integrates into standard windows, with endless possibilities for future applications.
The push for greener buildings presents challenges for builders and developers alike. With commercial buildings accounting for nearly 40 percent of the world’s total energy consumption, UE windows make aggressive carbon-neutral goals achievable for both new and existing structures.
To building occupants, UE windows have the clear, vibrant experience that is expected from traditional windows. To building administrators and developers, they are a powerful new tool in the quest for optimal energy use.
Traditional solar panels use photovoltaic cells to absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity, offering the promise of clean, renewable energy. While useful, conventional solar cells are opaque, limiting their use to only a few specific applications, such as roof top solar systems or large solar farms.
With our patented technology, Ubiquitous Energy has expanded what’s possible in photovoltaic technology. We’ve engineered our solar cells to selectively transmit visible light, what we see, while absorbing and converting invisible ultraviolet and infrared light into electricity. This makes Ubiquitous Energy™ technology the first truly transparent solar technology, allowing windows to convert ambient light into useful electricity without impacting aesthetics or performance.
