  • Case Studies State that Solar Heat Gain is Curtailed by Use of Window (Energy) Film

    Case Studies on the use of Window (Energy) Film as a means of saving money on energy costs. It concludes through these case studies that for commercial and residential buildings it is an inexpensive alternative to purchasing and installing new ...


  • PG & E Utility Company Speak Out on the use of Window Film for use in Energy Savings

    Applied solar control films, also known as adhesive-backed films, are the most common retrofit technology for an unanticipated heat gain or glare problem. These thin metalized polyester films use an adhesive backing to attach the film to the inside surface of existing windows. Applied window films have changed dramatically since first introduced in 1968 and bear little resemblance ...


  • “Energy Film Uses Nanoparticle Technology to Save Energy”

    Energy Film in Portland, OR, has developed a thin layer of film that is applied to glass that saves energy by using nanoparticle technology to reduce solar heat gain, block UV radiation, and retain heat in winter. Energy Film is a subsidiary of Artscape, Inc. which has been doing business world-wide since 1997,While there are other products in the performance film industry there at least three ...


  • Growth mechanism and optical properties of zinc oxide thin film

    Zinc oxide (ZnO) thin films were successfully deposited on glass substrate by radio frequency (RF) sputtering technique. One set of the samples was annealed in open air at temperatures of 423 K, 573 K and 723 K for one hour while another set of samples was annealed under nitrogen atmosphere for the same duration of time and temperature as the other set. A growth mechanism for thin film growth by ...

  • Simulation and performance analysis of superstrate Cu(In,Ga)Se 2 solar cells using nanostructured Zn 1– x V x O thin films

    In this paper, we describe in the first step the structural, electrical and optical properties of the nanostructured Zn 1– x V x O thin films deposited on glass substrates by rf-magnetron sputtering using aerogel nanoparticles synthesised by the sol–gel method. The best properties, satisfying the role of window and buffer layers, were achieved, ...

  • Transparent conductors for solar energy and energy efficiency: a broad-brush picture

    Transparent conductors (TCs) have numerous and diverse applications for solar energy applications and for energy efficiency. The largest of these applications, in terms of area, are based on the fact that the TCs have low infrared emittance and can be used to improve the thermal properties of modern fenestration. Depending on whether the TCs are reflecting or not in the near infrared pertinent to ...

  • Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) Market Growth Research 2013-2019

    Building Integrated Solar photovoltaic (BIPV) systems utilize building integrated solar panels to generate electricity, by transforming solar radiations into electrical energy. The energy generated has wide applications in several sectors including residential, commercial and industrial sectors. The major advantage of the BIPV is decentralization from grid power. View Full ...


  • Photovoltaic Applications and Policy Initiatives

    Issue: The world photovoltaic (PV) market has grown significantly in recent years. Although this trend is expected to continue in the future, estimates cannot be given with any real certainty. Relevance: In this context the question that arises is the role that public and private funding plays in market development and how this funding should be used to ensure the best results. Although current ...

  • Will we ever stop using fossil fuels?

    Not without a carbon tax, suggests a study by an MIT economist. In recent years, proponents of clean energy have taken heart in the falling prices of solar and wind power, hoping they will drive an energy revolution. But a new study co-authored by an MIT professor suggests otherwise: Technology-driven cost reductions in fossil fuels will lead us to continue using all ...

  • Greening the Built Environment

    ASTM Standards and Products Form the Foundation of Sustainable Construction Efforts Today, a major focal point for the worldwide building industry is the growing demand for sustainable construction. Sustainable, or “green,” construction is focused on the more effective use of resources and ultimately the creation of healthier, energy efficient, more environmentally ...

  • SolarBee Technical Bulletin

    A. SOLARBEE OVERVIEW 1. Origin of the SolarBee. Pump Systems, Inc. (PSI) developed, built and installed its first solar powered mixer in Dickinson, ND, in the summer of 1998. It was installed into a 30 acre x 13 foot deep municipal wastewater reservoir which had a long history of toxicity associated with ammonia, odor, and stratification problems. In six weeks the entire reservoir cleared up to ...
