Gralnik joins a growing SolarWindow team that has expertise in joint-ventures and licensing; large scale energy-products manufacturing; project finance; glass and energy products sales and marketing. He brings 30 years’ experience in 14 countries, negotiating the purchase and sale of conventional and renewable energy systems for large commercial buildings such as shopping centers, institutional clients, ex-military bases, and skyscrapers.
Consuming almost 40% of all the electricity generated in the U.S., these commercial buildings are ideal customers for the company’s electricity-generating windows, which could reduce electricity demand by 30%-50% in tall towers and have a one-year financial payback, according to independently validated engineering modeling.
“As we’ll highlight in our upcoming Sept. 7 production update, the specific expertise of Mr. Gralnik will help us market our electricity-generating windows to the estimated five million commercial buildings in the US and eventually to the tens of millions of commercial buildings around the world,” stated John Conklin, president and CEO of SolarWindow Technologies, Inc.
As SVP, global director of renewable energy services at JLL, he founded and expanded their renewable energy advisory services practice to 12 countries and won the da Vinci Award for Innovation. JLL is an international leader in providing advisory and real estate services that include the purchase, sale, and management of commercial real estate and iconic skyscrapers, with more than 70,000 employees and a 250-year strong history in 80 countries.
