Research Frontiers CEO to present keynote address at IDTechEx Smart Glass Conference

At the IDTechEx Energy Harvesting and Storage USA Conference in Santa Clara, California this week, Joseph M. Harary, President and CEO of Research Frontiers, will give the keynote address on Smart Glass, outlining the various types of dynamic glazing technologies and the benefits of using smart glass in general.

Joseph M. Harary, President and CEO of Research Frontiers, will give the keynote address on Smart Glass at the sixth annual 2014 IDTechEx Energy Harvesting and Storage USA Conference in Santa Clara, California 19-20 November. His presentation “SmartGlass: Can your glass do this?” will be given on 19 November and will outline the various types of dynamic glazing technologies and the benefits of using smart glass in general, and SPD-SmartGlass in particular, to save energy, improve occupant comfort, productivity and well-being. Harary’s keynote presentation will also focus on how SPD-SmartGlass, the world’s best-selling smart window technology, is being deployed in the architectural, automotive, aircraft, marine and museum industries.
Harary noted: “I am honoured to be asked by IDTechEx to make the keynote presentation on smart glass and to share the stage with other smart window technology developers Sage, View, and Merck. There is a clear difference in the performance characteristics of different smart glass technologies such as Suspended Particle Device (SPD), electrochromic, and liquid crystal technologies. Attendees at this conference will learn about all of these technologies and why SPD-SmartGlass has become the best-selling smart window technology in the world with tens of thousands of customers currently enjoying the benefits of SPD products around the world.”
This sixth annual IDTechEx event provides insight into energy harvesting technologies, case studies and markets, ranging from consumer electronics and sensors all the way to vehicles, building and industrial automation.
