Next Generation Photovoltaics Lecture Series:

Powering Future Cities with Quantum Dot-Tinted Glass Windows

Hunter McDaniel
Founder And CEO UbiQD, Inc.

Webinar: Tuesday, Feb. 12, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.

In urban settings where demand (and price) for electricity is high, the space available for solar modules is minimal. This talk proposes one solution to the urban energy problem is the utilization of high performance quantum dots (QDs) in glass-based luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs). Partially transparent LSCs provide a simple method of energy harvesting wherein sunlight is effectively redirected (through a down-conversion process) to small solar cells hidden in the frame of a window. This talk will provide an overview to the market opportunity for solar windows, competitive landscape, and a status update on UbiQD's progress.

The lecture is part of the Next Generation Photovolatics series.

The University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University and Colorado State University are partners in supporting the Center for Next Generation Photovoltaics, a part of the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC) program.
