Any window or glass surface can be turned into a solar panel, says Susan Stone, CEO of Ubiquitous Energy, a California-based company that is doing exactly that. Stone spoke with David Lin, Anchor and Producer at Kitco News, at the Collision Conference in Toronto.

Solar is much like graphene…. it can do almost anything but get out of the lab. It seems every year since the late 70s I have heard about some innovation or breakthrough in solar, but I never see it show up in real life.
MARKET MAKERS & BIG INSTITUTIONS!!!
As we all see market is down. Now they create fear and panic news so retail will sell their position and brainless will go Short lol, while they go long LOL. COME ON FOLKS DON'T FALL FOR THIS!!!
Can just picture Conseula from the cleaning staff spray the window with Windex, and rub off the solar layer….
flush your money down the toilet with solar unless you get a government grant
Edison won't allow it.
HELL NO…I'm loyal to fossil fuels…They make a country great .Cheap & effective
Let's turn Nicola Tesla s invention to use scalar energy into a model of free energy for the world.
With lipstick 💄 like THAT – I can’t wait to see her 6” stilettos !!!
WHEN THE STREAM GETS TO WORKING !!!
Cali is going to literally become an actor in a Hollywood apocalyptic movie. IT IS A DUMP OF HUMAN WASTE.
No stream tap to retry
Why can’t you see through your roof? I would love a glass roof that charges my house
…….Zero Point Energy (ZPE) from the quantum vacuum of space.
Actually I would put them on my roof. In Europe, government taxes solar panels. Obviously we don't want to be in the business of financing government, so let's do this
I want it in Mexico city. How, when? 😉
Yet another Elizabeth Holmes
That’s a lot of silver! 😀
a demo would had be more worthy…
I'm in, I need to redo one of my houses.
do not trust women, trust elon men
Few realities with solar: Doesn't obviously work at night which is when the highest energy loads occur generally in homes, STILL requires fossil fuels in production (coke from coal).
IF solar is used to say replenish or conserve hydro lake generation for example by pumping the water back into a lake you then you may have night time storage solved. This is why ALL solar should go to replenishing the overall "grid" generation.
HUGE Wind turbines are not a good solution simply because they are made from fossil fuel composites you CANNOT recycle (yet) so old turbine blades actually just get buried to remove the bad image association. FACT
Why not just license the "organic semiconductor" coating to window manufacturers? Or is the basis for the patent = window + coating ? I do actually really like this idea of filtering useful visible light and diverting the non-visible to generate power.
New age Canadian tuxedo going on there..
You will never run your fridge with window power not possible. Solar can run small things for short times, few cloudy days and no battery storage and wind only works if you are in windy climate or close to water. Many of these people live in a dream
Wow they have buildings under test. If it is economically viable this could be the next Tesla. Or if not the next Theranos.
Good idea for a solarium or stand alone greenhouse. But a lot of money for growing winter seedlings. Haha
I live in Cali, my PGE i bill s about $600 a month. Im all in..
House fires everywhere…. I hope this company doesn't pay Congress enough to make them mandatory.
Ahhh yes, the solar con. Sure we can use battery packs that cost as much as a car that need to replaced every 5 years. Energy efficient yet never wallet efficient. Failed yet again.
I am from Chile and the amount of damage this con is doing to my country will be talked about by historians.
Aptera make a solar electric car David!
@3:46 – Why we need solar power? What's wrong with our current system? Seriously David, you ask really good questions most of the time, but this one? Duh!!! It's the answer obvious?
David is a chad, Susan was awesome, and Kitco is the best channel on YT
Missed a question. What's the life and degredation of the product?
Lots of Toxic Feminity and Womensplaining there
You needed to ask her about the toxic dipossabilty of batteries and if she has answers for the issue.
Great Interview David
She probably should have taken the clothing tag off her jacket : )
BS most homes have eves to keep the hot sun out of the house if you take away the eves the window based solar wouldn’t be able to produce enough energy to cool the heating from the sun . Just improve the solar shingles made by many companies already like GAF timberline and Tesla
