NanoMarkets Report Projects Smart Glass Sales to the Automotive Sector to Reach $3.2 Billion by 2021

Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has published a new report, “Smart Glass Opportunities in the Automotive Industry – 2014” covering the market for smart glass in the automotive sector. In this report the NanoMarkets says it expects this market to reach $2.1 billion by 2019, compared with $1.0 billion in 2014.

Glen Allen, Virginia (February 27, 2014) — Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has published a new report, “Smart Glass Opportunities in the Automotive Industry – 2014” covering the market for smart glass in the automotive sector. In this report the NanoMarkets says it expects this market to reach $2.1 billion by 2019, compared with $1.0 billion in 2014.

Smart glass sales for cars, trucks and public transport are currently dominated by electrochromic mirrors; a relatively mature business. However, the report predicts new revenue opportunities emerging for smart auto glass from active self-dimming windows, self-cleaning glass and self-repairing glass and especially from glass embedded with electronic and photovoltaic capability. Electrochromic mirrors account for 90 percent of smart auto glass revenues today, but this percentage will have dropped to 67 percent by 2019.

Key factors promoting the use of smart automotive glass include enhanced energy efficiency, safety, comfort and style. These factors are not new to the auto industry but ongoing technology improvements allow smart glass firms to better create value with their products.

For more information on the report see: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/smart_glass_opportunities_in_the_automotive_industry_2014.

About the report:

In the report, NanoMarkets analyzes opportunities available for the following categories of smart auto glass: self-tinting glass (electrochromic, photochromic, thermochromic and SPD), smart privacy glass, smart mirrors, self-cleaning glass, self-healing glass, device- embedded glass and retrofit window film. Addressable markets discussed include cars, trucks and various forms of public transportation.

The report includes eight-year forecasts of smart auto glass markets in volume (square meters) and value ($ million) terms. It also discusses adoption strategies for smart glass by major automobile/truck companies and the smart auto glass strategies of leading suppliers.

Firms covered in the report include: 3M, American Glass, Apple, ASG, Audi, AutoGlass, Balcony Systems, BASF, Bayer, BMW, Cardinal, Carlex, Chameleon Photochromic Smart Film, ChromoGenics, Corning, Dow Chemical, DuPont, Eastman Chemical/Solutia, GE, Gentex, Guardian, Hitachi, Hypho Technology, International Trading, Mercedes, NDFOS, NeoView Kolon, Nissan, NSG/Pilkington, Pleotint, PPG, Ravenbrick, Research Frontiers, Saint-Gobain, Samsung, Sage, Scienstry, Southwall, Solvay, Suntek, Toray, Transition Window Tint, SWITCH Materials, US e-Chromics, and View.

From the report:

Until recently – apart from electrochromic mirrors – smart auto glass consisted of passive self-tinting windows that adjusted to glare but provided no passenger or driver control so were of limited use. Passive self-tinting glass will continue to sell into the auto sector, but NanoMarkets expects that use of active thermochromic and SPD technologies that provide more control will grow and self-tinting windows will move beyond being just a design feature in expensive cars. As a result, the market for active self-tinting glass/ films will reach around $240 million by 2020.

Automotive windows have previously added intelligence with smart coatings such as electrochromic or self-cleaning materials. However, the latest generation of smart windows uses embedded electronics and photovoltaics as well. This trend is enabled by new solution processing techniques and thin-film devices and will add to the comfort and energy efficiency of cars. On-board photovoltaic capability can add to fuel efficiency by running lights and air conditioning. Windows and sunroofs can become soft cabin lights at night contributing to comfort and design appeal. Device-embedded auto glass is already available and is expected to become a $330 million market by 2020.

The report also notes that in the past “self-cleaning” and “self-healing” glass have really meant little more than short-lived wipe on coatings that facilitate washing off dirt or covering up scratches. New developments in advanced materials now hint at auto glass that actually self-repairs when cracked, while some glass firms look forward to when windshields will not need wipers. As a result, the market for self-healing and self-cleaning glass is expected to reach almost $420 million by 2020.

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging markets in energy, electronics and other area created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts in smart glass and windows markets, which it has been covering for more than five years.

Ecotech Institute Students Graduate “Job Ready” With Industry Certifications

Programs allow new professionals to enter desired industries and hit the ground running

Denver, CO, February 26, 2014 – Students attending Ecotech Institute, the only college entirely focused on renewable energy and sustainability training, can now receive industry certification from three distinct national standards development and credential organizations. This provides Ecotech Institute graduates the best foundation possible to immediately make an impact in their field.

Ecotech Institute students have the opportunity to graduate with certifications from North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), and Building Performance Institute (BPI).

Ecotech Institute has nine renewable energy labs that students can take advantage of to get a hands-on education. This year, Ecotech Institute’s energy efficiency lab will also open, helping students prepare for sustainable energy industry certifications on-site.

The new energy efficiency lab is in addition to Ecotech Institute’s Wind Training Lab, which simulates operational and safety functions on large, commercial wind turbines. These labs further position Ecotech Institute as the premier destination for renewable energy education.

Ecotech Institute, based in Aurora, Colo., currently offers eight associate’s degree programs:

Facility Management Technology
Energy Efficiency
Solar Energy Technology
Wind Energy Technology
Renewable Energy Technology
Electrical Energy Technology
Power Utility Technician
Business Administration – Sustainability.

Woody White Is Best Choice for NC District 7 Voters Who Oppose Amnesty for Illegals

ALIPAC is endorsing Woody White for Congress in North Carolina’s 7th congressional district today due to his opposition to amnesty legislation for illegal immigrants and due to David Rouzer’s prior lobbying efforts to pass amnesty for illegals.

Raleigh, NC, USA (February 25, 2014) — Contact: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) Press@alipac.us / (919) 787-6009

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is endorsing Woody White for Congress in North Carolina’s 7th congressional district today due to his opposition to amnesty legislation for illegal immigrants and due to David Rouzer’s prior lobbying efforts to pass amnesty for illegals.

“NC voters have a clear choice in the 7th district to replace outgoing Congressman Mike McIntyre,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “David Rouzer has proven he supports a form of immigration reform amnesty for illegal aliens that would disrupt American elections and bring in millions more illegal immigrants while Woody White has pledged to uphold America’s existing immigration and border laws instead.”

David Rouzer was defeated by Mike McIntyre in 2012 because many Republican voters voted Democrat due to Rouzer’s support for amnesty for illegal aliens and McIntyre’s staunch opposition to such legislation. ALIPAC played a key role in that race by endorsing McIntyre.

David Rouzer admitted that he was paid to lobby for amnesty for illegal aliens and continued to support amnesty as a “solution” for illegal immigration during a televised debate with prior GOP primary opponent Ilario Pantano that took place on WECT TV on April 4, 2012.

ALIPAC’s William Gheen went on the record in 2012 telling NC voters that David Rouzer’s friends in Raleigh drew the new 7th district to elect Rouzer from Johnston County.

“David Rouzer is both a Washington, DC, and Raleigh, NC, insider who has used his influence to get the 7th district customized for his congressional run,” said William Gheen. “The last thing NC or America needs right now is another corrupt insider establishment politician like David Rouzer who is willing to put his own desires before what is good for the American public!”

Woody White has completed ALIPAC’s 2014 Federal Candidate survey indicating he is willing to oppose all forms of amnesty for illegal immigrants and instead “Support Americans and legal immigrants by supporting the adequate enforcement of America’s existing border and immigration laws as the US Constitution requires for the protection of American jobs, elections, taxpayer resources, health, and lives.”

Woody White becomes ALIPAC’s 92nd endorsement of 2014 and joins other North Carolina candidates such as Congressmen Walter Jones Jr. and Patrick McHenry, who enjoy ALIPAC’s support due to their opposition to illegal immigration and amnesty.

SmartTOP Add-On Convertible Top Controller For Mazda MX-5 Now With New Enclosure

Effective immediately, all retrofit SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller modules for the Mazda MX-5 are being shipped with a new product enclosure. The sleek new shape was custom designed for Mods4cars and gives the module not only a more streamlined appearance but adds convenience when installing the product. The SmartTOP module allows drivers to open and close the convertible top while driving and with one-touch operation.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), February 21st, 2014 — The SmartTOP Convertible Top add-on module designed by aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars for the Mazda MX-5 is a kit that can be installed by anyone. It allows drivers to operate the top while driving at speeds of up to 60 km/h (~38mph) with added convenience. A quick tap on the console button is sufficient.

“Every convertible driver knows the scenarios: Sunshine turns into cloudy skies followed by a sudden rainfall. Now all that matters is being able to stop quickly to close the top. Or hoping that a red light won’t change while the top is still closing.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. With the SmartTOP module the top can be used even while driving at slow speeds, so the top-down experience comes with more peace of mind.

The MX-5 compatible module can be used in three ways. 1. After unlatching the mechanical lock the top can be lowered by holding down the appropriate switch on the dash and raised the same way. 2. One-Touch operation. Same as before but the top opens or closes fully automatically after just a quick touch. 3. Auto Feature: When this setting is activated, the top will fully automatically lower itself right after the latch is disengaged and without the need to press the top down button at all. Closing is done the same way as in 2. All three options allow use of the top while the car is moving and without the need to shift into neutral or park gear.

Mods4cars has improved the design of the SmartTOP product itself and effective immediately all modules for the Mazda MX-5 come in the new, slimmer and more streamlined enclosure. The new shape was custom designed to fit the components perfectly and to encapsulate the product fully. All LEDs and connectors, including the USB port, are now enclosed in order to be optimally protected.

The new enclosure is also smaller than before and thus allows the product to be installed in tighter spots. It is more eco-friendly by no longer requiring screws and by using less plastic. Additionally two LEDs were fully integrated that aid during installation. They show current status, trouble codes and signal a correct installation of the module.

In order to make installation as simple as possible, a custom designed Plug-and-Play wiring harness is part of the kit. It uses genuine OEM connectors for a perfect and secure fit. No wires need to be spliced or cut. It simply connects in between two connectors and the SmartTOP module. It is possible to remove the kit without leaving any traces.

The SmartTOP module can be programmed according to individual needs. It is possible to configure the maximum speed allowed for top operation as well as other settings. The entire module can be temporarily disabled as well while retaining all user settings. The module comes equipped with a standard USB port for easy configuration and firmware updates via PC or Mac. All firmware updates are provided by Mods4cars online and free of charge.

The convertible top kit for Mazda MX-5 is available for 249 Euros + tax. Mods4cars SmartTOP modules are available for: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.

A product demonstration can be seen here: http://youtu.be/f29nPRdEN1o

About Mods4cars:
Mods4cars was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.

Christina Moss Naturals Tells How to Have Great Skin in 7 Easy Steps

Great Skin Begins With These 7 Steps – Christina Moss Naturals

Los Angeles, CA, February 21, 2014 – Christina Moss Naturals. Your face is the most conspicuous part of your skin. You may not think about it but on a daily basis your face tells the world if your skin is being cared for or neglected. Correct skin care that results in a healthier complexion is far easier and less costly than one might expect.

Detergents, artificial fragrances and other chemical based products should never be used on your face. If there is any chemical sensitivity these product will sabotage your skin care routine. And even normal skin can be left stripped of its natural oils and left unnecessarily dry which can lead to a wrinkled and prematurely aging complexion. It’s never too early to choose the right product. So the first thing to ensure is that you are using an organic facial wash or facial cleanser. We make one (our Organic Facial Wash) that is concentrated so it’s long-lasting and ounce for ounce is not only a fabulous product, it is safe and an economical choice.

The second thing is to wash your face properly. Follow these steps:

1. Wash your hands with hot soapy water and scrub your nails with a nail brush.

2. Remove eye make-up. Remove mascara with a dab of olive oil on a cotton pad. This also works for water-proof mascara. Do not pull at your lashes. The idea is to gently slide the mascara off. Then remove any eye make-up with a drop of olive oil on a fresh cotton pad. Avoid tugging and pulling at this delicate area. Be gentle with your skin.

3. Splash your face with warm water. Do not use hot water as it is stressful for your skin and could result in burst capillaries.

4. Squeeze a penny-sized amount of cleanser from the bottle directly onto a wet facial brush, a face cloth or your fingers, and begin massaging the cleanser into your skin in small circular motions. Continue this way across your forehead, face and neck. Remember to be gentle.

5. When done, rinse your face and neck thoroughly with warm water being careful to remove all residue, and finish by splashing your face with cool water to help close the pores.

6. Gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel.

7. Moisturize your face and neck.

NanoMarkets Issues New Report on Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaic Market

“Dye-Sensitized Cell Markets -2014,” says that the dye-sensitized cell (DSC) modules market will return to growth and generate revenues of almost $675 million in 2021.

Glen Allen, Virginia (February 21, 2014) — A new report from NanoMarkets titled “Dye-Sensitized Cell Markets -2014,” says that the dye-sensitized cell (DSC) modules market will return to growth and generate revenues of almost $675 million in 2021. NanoMarkets notes that the industry is facing brighter prospects after a brutal industry shakeout that has taken place in the solar business over the past few years. Within its report NanoMarkets takes note of capital investments, growth in manufacturing and new applications where DSC makes a reasonable case. NanoMarkets also believes that DSC will now take over many applications where amorphous silicon (a-Si) was the PV technology of choice. DSC offers the advantages of a-Si but at a lower cost, higher efficiency and the ability to operate well indoors.

For more details of the report see: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/dye_sensitized_cell_markets_2014.

About the report:

The solar industry resurgence is leading to more interest in third-generation PV technologies and DSC technology will be a key beneficiary of this trend. In this report, NanoMarkets assesses the current state of the DSC sector and examines the demand for this power source in portable charging devices, embedded electronics, BIPV, digital signage and other retail applications, sensors, military and automotive applications.

This report draws from NanoMarkets ongoing solar industry research program, but we have also provided a thorough discussion of the latest applications directions, capital investments, performance trends and R&D in the DSC space.

In addition, this report contains updated eight-year forecasts of DSC modules with breakouts for all the major applications listed above. For each of these applications projections are provided in revenue ($ million), power (MW) and module area (square meter) terms. An analysis of the business strategy of each of the major DSC players is also included.

Among the firms that are discussed in this report are: 3G Solar, Analog Devices, BASF, Dyesol, Everlight Chemicals, Exeger, Fujikura, Fujimori Kogyo, G24 Power, Merck, Nissha Printing, Oxford Photovoltaics, Peccell, Pilkington, Samsung, Sharp, Showa Denko, Solaronix, SolarPrint, Sony, Tata, Texas Instruments, Timo Technologies and Umicore.

From the report:

A few years ago it seemed that DSC would not survive commercially. But we now see growing private investment from all over the world. DSC is no longer technology that survives on grants from government agencies. Recent investments have enabled firms such as G24 Power and Exeger to expand their production facilities. For others investment in DSC has provided them with a means to develop new products and improve cell performance. Private firms that have made recent direct investments in the DSC business include: Israel Electric, MTI Partners, Ningbo Hauyou Real Estate (China), Parkwalk Advisors, Romande Energie (Switzerland), Tasnee (Saudi Arabia, Wallenstam (Sweden) and the group of private investors that recently refinanced G24 Power in Wales.

Many new applications for DSC modules are also being invented, powering sensors and automotive integrated PV (AIPV) among them. Nonetheless, NanoMarkets says that the DSC business cannot flourish without success in the building integrated PV (BIPV) sector. By 2019, NanoMarkets expects that BIPV will account for 67 percent of revenues. In addition to high efficiency, DSC panels’ advantage in the BIPV space is that they can easily be fabricated to deliver diverse colors, shapes and transparency.

The materials opportunity in the DSC space will remain quite small although materials for DSC cells will approach $170 million by 2021. Although many DSC firms have tended to get their materials from small chemical firms that specialize in selling “R&D” quantities of materials, a few large specialty chemical firms are also interested in this space. These include BASF, Merck and Umicore. Merck in particular has been building DSC partnerships in this space.

While most of the firms active in the DSC space are medium sized firms, the report also notes that there are some giant firms waiting in the wings who could jump in and become industry leaders as the DSC market evolves. These include Samsung SDI, Sharp and Sony.
