UE Power™ energy generating windows are currently on public display at the Takanawa Gateway Station in Tokyo. Ubiquitous Energy’s partner, ENEOS, alongside a consortium of other companies, created this demonstration to bring awareness of the UE Power™ energy generating technology to the public. This is a significant step towards promoting the widespread use of transparent solar technology throughout the world.
The energy generating windows are located inside JR East’s newly constructed Takanawa Gateway Station in downtown Tokyo. The power generated from the windows is being stored in a battery and powering a 42″ informational display that shares information about the technology. The window demonstration will be on display to the public until mid-July of 2023, giving the public an opportunity to see firsthand how energy generating windows generate electricity from sunlight without compromising the aesthetics or functionality of traditional windows. The demonstration has already generated tremendous interest and has been covered by media in Japan including primetime news on Fuji TV.
UE Power™ energy generating windows have the potential to transform the energy landscape through architectural glass. This means that buildings can generate electricity through the windows, leading to significant cost savings and a step toward a net zero future.
This demonstration follows on a one-year evaluation of UE Power™ windows that was already conducted in Japan. The successful demonstration at Takanawa Gateway Station is expected to generate more interest in UE Power™ energy generating windows and lead to future installation projects some of which are already underway.
