Ubiquitous Energy is a Silicon Valley technology company leading the development of transparent photovoltaics with its award-winning ClearView Power™ technology—the world’s first truly transparent solar technology.
With a mission to eliminate the battery life limitations of mobile devices and power smart glass for buildings, Ubiquitous Energy is implementing its ClearView Power technology into a wide range of products as an invisible, onboard source of electricity.

ClearView Power technology is a thin film that covers the display area of electronic products—including wearables, tablets, internet-of-things devices, and digital signage—generating electricity to power these devices.
True transparency is achieved by selectively transmitting light visible to the human eye, while converting invisible ultraviolet and near-infrared light into electricity. This allows these invisible films to be integrated directly into the surfaces of electronic products with no degradation of device function or display clarity.
Among other applications, ClearView Power technology also serves as an invisible, power-producing coating for windows, providing an onboard power source for electronic window functionality or to offset energy consumption in buildings.

By contrast, ClearView Power transmits light visible to the human eye, absorbing only ultraviolet and near-infrared light. This invisible film is applied to electronic devices, windows, and other surfaces to generate electricity without affecting design or aesthetics. Implemented as a fully transparent film that covers a device’s display area, ClearView Power is a truly transparent solar panel that can overlay the surface of an electronic display without obstructing the view.
