The Holy Grail – Converting Windows To Solar Panels Achieved

Three months ago, Next Energy Technologies, a maker of a transparent photovoltaic coating and glazing firm Walters & Wolf, demonstrated that commercial windows might be converted in to energy-producing solar panels – the results are now in.

Although the theory had been tested over a number of years, it wasn’t until April 2022 that a PC Prototype Window Wall was built that showed that the aesthetics of the glass would not be affected and that a enough energy could be produced to give a return on investment.

The wall was created in collaboration with Next, Walters & Wolf and commercial glass fabricator Glassfab Tempering Services.
