ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Quantum-dot coated windows could soon be generating electricity for some Wells Fargo buildings, thanks to a $250,000 grant for the Los Alamos-based startup Ubiquitous Quantum Dots.
Wells Fargo’s Innovation Incubator (IN2) selected UbiQD as one of five startups nationwide to participate in its program, which pays for up to $250,000 in technical assistance from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Colorado. Once a program participant’s technology is sufficiently advanced, startups become eligible to test their innovations at Wells Fargo buildings, or at partner facilities.
“We believe we’ll be ready to deploy our technology in a pilot project with Wells Fargo next year,” said UbiQD CEO Hunter McDaniel.
