Windows that generate energy will soon be possible with solar glass entering the glazing market.

The window units are a double glazed vacuum insulated within which there are semi-transparent perovskite solar cells. This technology was developed an engineering professor, Dr Anita Ho-Baillie of the University of New South Wales under a grant program by the Australian Research Council that provided $365,000 in funding. The cells are lightweight, flexible and cheap making it a desired material in the making of the solar glass.
