See you at booth # W819!
Onyx Solar received an award for the most sustainable material at the WSSET INNOVATION AWARDS 2016
The contest, organized by the World Society of Sustainable Energy Technologies, acknowledges advancements in the development of new sustainable technologies. Onyx Solar received this accolade on behalf of improvements made on the competitiveness of building integrated photovoltaic technologies – developing a new generation of photovoltaic glass.
The award is a new landmark for Onyx Solar in Singapore, where the company has already integrated its photovoltaic glass in the tallest building in the country, the Tanjong Pagar tower, and has established an official distributor, iGlass, whose representatives picked up the award during the SET 2016 conference.
The renowned Glass Magazine picked the tool as a product spotlight in its latest edition.
The tool lets the user discover the advantages of employing our photovoltaic glass in lieu of conventional glazing, highlighting aspects such as savings in HVAC-dedicated energy, electricity generated, tons of CO2 that were not liberated into the atmosphere, as well as the payback and ROI figures obtained by integrating this innovative product.
You can download the tool for free from Apple Store and Play Store, or directly from our website. It will allow you to check the results for more than 140 cities all over the world, using different technologies (amorphous or crystalline silicon) and construction solutions (canopy, building envelope or skylight) in a model building.
The Green Sports Alliance has bestowed the award to Miami Heat and their American Airlines Arena
Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass has been decisive for securing the award. It enables the stadium to generate nearly 34,500 kWh, allowing it to become the first LEED Gold certified sports center in the United States.
The amorphous silicon photovoltaic glass employed was tailor-made, and set on 14 circular skylights situated at the entrance of the building. The design allows the Miami Heat to use light effects in order to generate a spectacular atmosphere in which to indulge in events and victories.
Onyx Solar participated in the first project meeting, held in the headquarters of the French National Solar Energy Institute, located next to Chambéry.
The European Project PVSITES aims to improve building integrated photovoltaic technology, through the demonstration of an ambitious portfolio of new technologies and systems capable of complying with the latest market demands.
During the meeting, the partners established the next steps towards these new solutions ensuring outstanding flexibility in design and increased performance.
Onyx Solar has integrated its photovoltaic glass in a high-end residence in California.
The photovoltaic glass has been integrated in the form of a skylight covering an indoor swimming pool. The skylight has a unique slide-like shape, thanks to the curved wooden structure on which the nearly 72 photovoltaic glass modules rest.
Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass increases the comfort of building users by enhancing thermal and acoustic isolation, while filtering out most of the harmful solar radiation. It also lets enjoy gorgeous views from the swimming pool, due to its 20% semi-transparency degree (L vision).
The prestigious consultancy firm Frost & Sullivan has awarded Onyx Solar the “2016 Global Building Integrated Photovoltaic Glass Technology Leadership Award”
Onyx Solar®´s founders attended a gala held on June 29th in London to receive the award handed by Frost & Sullivan’s representatives. They thanked the awarders for recognizing Onyx Solar®´s focus on technological innovation, which has allowed the company to become, in just 6 years, the global leader in the manufacture of photovoltaic glass for buildings. A disruptive innovation that will help save our planet by decisively reducing greenhouse gases emissions.
The award recognizes Onyx Solar®’s succesful trajectory, through which it has already executed more than 70 projects in 25 countries all over the world. In addition, it has collaborated with prestigious architectural firms like Foster, SOM or Vinoly, in projects for clients as important as Samsung, Coca-Cola or Novartis.
