Ubiquitous Energy, Inc., announced that its ClearView Power technology is being demonstrated in BMW Brand Stores around the world this summer as part of BMW’s “i Exhibition.” The ClearView Power transparent photovoltaic coating is being displayed on 6-inch glass panels produced in Ubiquitous Energy’s Silicon Valley pilot production facility. The demonstrations will provide BMW customers and partners a glimpse of the new material that will allow windows to generate electricity.
The ClearView Power demonstration units were rolled out in the BMW Brand Store in Paris in mid-April. In the coming months, there will also be exhibits in Munich, Brussels, London, Shanghai, and Seoul where ClearView Power prototypes will be on display. “We’re delighted that BMW chose Ubiquitous Energy to participate in this global tour for innovative new technologies,” said Ubiquitous Energy CEO, Miles Barr. “The automotive industry has shown great interest in using our lightweight, transparent solar materials in next-generation vehicles.”
The BMW i Exhibition is taking place in BMW Brand Stores and BMW Driving Centers around the world and invites visitors to enter new holistic experiences. In order to achieve this goal, BMW partners with brands, artists, and startup companies to connect previously unfamiliar worlds and explore new dimensions. BMW invites these partners to jointly make use of the experiential formats as a platform to present both BMW and the partners in an unprecedented context.
