1 Innovating Alternative and Renewable Energy Solutions A A A Corporate» Technology» Media» Investors» Contact SolarWindow New Energy Technologies is developing the first-of-its kind SolarWindow technology, which enables see-through windows to generate electricity by spraying their glass surfaces with New Energy s electricity-generating coatings the subject of forty two (42) patent filings.

2 SolarWindow - New Energy Technologies Inc 2 Watch our SolarWindow Introduction Sketch Video! SolarWindow Topics» First of Its Kind» Recent Breakthroughs» The Organic Edge» Market Drivers» Spray On Solar Cells» Resources SolarWindow generates clean electricity on see-through glass windows, by making use of the energy of natural sunlight and artificial sources such as fluorescent and LED lighting typically installed in offices, schools, and commercial buildings. Under an exclusive world-wide licensing agreement with the University of South Florida, together with a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy National Renewable Energy Laboratory, covering forty two (42) patent applications, we currently have several product development goals for our SolarWindow technology: SolarWindow - Commercial A flat glass product for installation in new commercial towers under construction and replacement windows; SolarWindow -Structural Glass Structural glass walls and curtains for tall structures; SolarWindow -Architectural Glass Textured and decorative interior glass walls, room dividers, etc. SolarWindow -Residential A window glass for installation in new residential homes under construction and replacement windows; SolarWindow -Flex Flexible films which may be applied directly on to glass, similar to aftermarket window tint films, for retrofit to existing

3 SolarWindow - New Energy Technologies Inc 3 commercial towers, buildings, and residential homes; and SolarWindow -BIPV Building product components associated with building-integrated-photovoltaic ( BIPVǁ) applications in homes, buildings, and office towers. SolarWindow coatings for commercial and military aircraft, and the safety and security of military pilots. How do we generate electricity on see-through glass for commercial application in homes, offices, and commercial buildings? New Energy s solution is unique to our SolarWindow coatings, which: Make use of the world s smallest functional organic solar cells, which measure less than ¼ the size of a grain of rice, and have been shown to successfully produce electricity in a published peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy of the American Institute of Physics; Are sprayed on to see-through glass using a novel, patent-pending process presented in AZoNano s (peer-reviewed, Journal of Nanotechnology Online; Dec. 20, 2009), Nanotechnology Thought Leaders series; Do not require expensive high-temperature or high-vacuum production methods, but rather, can be sprayed on to glass at room temperature; Generate electricity from both natural and artificial light sources, outperforming today s commercial solar and thin-film technologies by as much as 10-fold; and Measure less than 1/10th the thickness of thin films (only 1/1000th the thickness of human hair). Our SolarWindow technology capable of generating electricity on see-through glass windows is under development for potential application in the estimated 5 million commercial buildings in America (Energy Information Administration) and more than 80 million single detached homes.

Click here to view newly released 2014 SolarWindow Power Production Model Estimates. First-Of-Its-Kind Organic Solar Array Our SolarWindow technology utilizes an organic solar array composed of a series of ultra-small solar cells measuring less than ¼ the size of a grain of rice each. They are fabricated using environmentally-friendly hydrogen-carbon based materials, and successfully produce electricity, as demonstrated in a published peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy of the American Institute of Physics. New Energy s organic solar array has: The same desirable electrical properties as silicon, yet boasts a considerably better capacity to optically absorb photons from light to generate electricity, and achieves transparency through the innovative use of conducting polymers;

5 Superior optical absorption properties inherent to New Energy s ultra-small solar cells, enabling development of an ultra-thin film, only 1/1000th the thickness of a human hair, or 1/10th of a micrometer; and A key advantage over conventional thin films which are exponentially thicker, measuring several micrometers thick, thus inhibiting transparency. The Organic Edge; Our Ultra-Small Solar Cells Deliver Big Advantages Organic solar cells, or organic photovoltaics (OPV) have received the attention of the solar energy community as a promising low-cost alternative to typical PV (photovoltaic) solar cells used in today s solar industry to harness the sun s energy for renewable electricity. Solar cells that are currently available are largely made of silicon wafers, an expensive and brittle material that can limit their commercial usability. Other newer generation, lower-cost, flexible thin film solar materials such as amorphous silicon, copper-indiumgallium-selenide, and cadmium telluride, often require high-vacuum and high-temperature production techniques, and are many times thicker than New Energy s ultra-small solar cells. This generally limits the application of such thin films primarily to stainless steel, an expensive substrate material with limited prospects of delivering transparency. New Energy s SolarWindow technology makes use of ultra-small organic solar cells, which: Allow for the fabrication of transparent solar arrays on a broad range of substrate materials such as glass, plastic, and even paper; Are made of natural polymers which can be dissolved into liquid for easy application that does not require expensive and complicated high-temperature or high-vacuum production techniques common to other solar coatings; and Organic solar cells can be manufactured in a variety of ways, including screen printing, ink-jet printing and spraying. Our Unique Ability to Spray Solar Cells Onto Glass; A Low-Cost, High-Speed Solution In January 2010, scientists developing New Energy s SolarWindow unveiled a novel,

6 SolarWindow - New Energy Technologies Inc 6 patent-pending process for spraying solar cells and their related components onto glass a technical achievement presented in AZoNano s (peer-reviewed, Journal of Nanotechnology Online; Dec. 20, 2009), Nanotechnology Thought Leaders series. Once scaled-up for use in commercial-scale production, researchers anticipate the ability to spray solar coatings directly onto New Energy s first-of-its-kind see-through SolarWindow, currently under development, could provide significant commercial production advantages over today s thin-films. Conventional solar films are typically manufactured using expensive and slow manufacturing methods which rely on high-temperature and finicky vacuum deposition processes for depositing solar materials onto substrates; the resultant products are simply too thick to allow for transparency, an important consideration in the development of a commercially viable solar-powered glass window. Recent Breakthroughs June 3, 2014 New Energy released first-ever power modeling estimates of its SolarWindow prototype modules. May 8, 2014 New Energy s SolarWindow module was validated and sets new record. March 26, 2014 New Energy s has released never-before-seen photos of newest large-area, high-performance SolarWindow prototypes. January 21, 2014 New Energy s has achieved compatibility of the SolarWindow architecture with a variety of active layer electricity-generating coatings. December 16, 2013 New Energy s SolarWindow technology received the Energy Business Review s Energy Innovation Award October 30, 2013 New Energy announced that the Company plans to unveil the next generation, high performance in first quarter, September 9, 2013 New Energy announced that the Company has expanded the use of its SolarWindow coatings to include two new product lines. July 17, 2013 New Energy announced that we have successfully achieved a total of 21 new patent filings for protection of its proprietary SolarWindow technology, more than doubling the portfolio in only 12 months.

7 July 15, 2013 New Energy released a new introduction sketch video to SolarWindow technology. June 4, 2013 New Energy announced advancements in our design, architecture, and transparency goals for our electricity-generating coatings. May 09, 2013 New Energy announced a breakthrough in our spray-on fabrication techniques with USF.
