Identification

Ubiquitous Energy is adding a new, transformative capability to the renewables playbook by asking a proactive question: “what if every window in every building could serve as a transparent, electricity-generating solar panel?”

It is an aesthetically acceptable, electricity-generating alternative to traditional windows. Ubiquitous Energy performs like a true disruptor, offsetting an entire building’s electricity consumption by as much as 10 to 30%. But its greatest innovation is the way it blends in, thanks to unmatched compatibility on two crucial fronts – continuity with the transparency and colour neutrality – customers expect, and continuity with the manufacturing process a global industry relies on. Ubiquitous Energy is expanding what’s possible in a renewable energy portfolio, and expanding the actual idea of what a window can be in the process.
