As we have entered the new age of economy and sustainability, we certainly want everything to be sustainable. That is, we are looking for something that will allow us to use all available resources and, at the same time, leave sufficient amounts of these resources to be used by the next generations. In this context, the use of renewable energy sources has already become one of our top social priorities. The main question is, however, how glass manufacturers can benefit from these sustainability trends and, more importantly, how they can contribute to the development of various sustainable initiatives.
We at glass repair Gilbert have learned that a number of manufacturers and services providers in the glass industry are working hard to develop a new type of energy-renewable glass. In other words, attempts are being made to transform windows into solar panels. With a new type of glass coating, these companies are working to create the so-called solar windows, which will guarantee outstanding solar cell efficiency, perfect durability, and a remarkable power output. Just imagine that your window is not simply a window but also the source of power from a renewable source like sun. Most probably, you will want to install and use such windows and try to reduce your energy costs.
Needless to say, solar windows mark the new stage in the evolution of the entire glass industry, and we expect that these trends will continue to persist. As of now, glass manufacturers use electricity-generating nano-particles that are sprayed all over the glass surface and then function as small power stations. Glass repair Gilbert will keep monitoring the latest developments, but one of our biggest concerns is whether or not people can afford having and maintaining such windows. In everything that with technologies, affordability and maintenance are the biggest issues. We create new airplanes and automobiles, but we do not expect that people will be able to buy them. Therefore, one of the main tasks today is to ensure that the new solar windows are affordable. This is the only way they can have a direct positive impact on sustainability and the environment.
