Improving the energy efficiency of buildings with solar powered smart glass
Andluca Technologies, a Princeton University spin-out, has developed transparent solar technologies that selectively and efficiently convert ultraviolet (UV) light to electricity. The company’s first product uses transparent UV solar to provide in-window power to dynamically tint glass without any external wiring. The wireless smart glass system can reduce building energy use by up to 40% while significantly enhancing occupant comfort and productivity. Unlike available wired smart glass products — which require major renovation and installation by an electrician — Andluca’s wireless smart windows can be installed quickly and non-disruptively.
