According to New Energy Technologies, Inc., researchers developing its proprietary SolarWindow technology have achieved major scientific and technical breakthroughs, which will enable it to unveil a working prototype of the world“s first-ever glass window capable of generating electricity in the upcoming weeks. At present, solar panels have remained opaque, due to the use of metals and various expensive processes blocking visibility and preventing light from passing through glass surfaces.
