This morning, six promising early stage commercial buildings technology companies were announced as the second cohort of the Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator, IN2. IN2 is a five-year $10 million program funded through the Wells Fargo Foundation and administered by NREL. The program provides selected companies up to $250,000 in technical and business assistance, in order…
Polyceed will deliver low-cost, wirelessly controlled and multifunctional plug-and-play dynamic electrochromic (EC) window systems. EC window systems change light transmission properties in response to voltage, allowing control over the amount of light and heat passing through, which enables greater energy efficiency.
Dynamic glass for energy savings and human comfort.
Today’s EC products are expensive to manufacture, complex to install and require external wiring. Polyceed is developing a low-cost, controllable material for dynamic windows that requires no external wiring. The projected impact on commercial building energy efficiency includes broader deployment of dynamic glass and improving heat control at building fenestration due to low-cost technology fabrication and installation.
HOW IN2 IS HELPING
Polyceed is receiving assistance developing its first commercial prototype. NREL’s research team is assisting with the research and development of their EC window systems. This will allow Polyceed to verify energy savings and analyze the EC window systems impact on commercial buildings.
