The magazine The Architect’s Newspaper awarded Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic floor as the best outdoor  product of 2015

Best product awardAccording to Colin Brice, cofounder of the architecture firm Mapos, Onyx Solar is “a game changer” in the world of architecture.

This American magazine is a reference for architects, designers, engineers, contractors, etc. because it makes reference to the latest trends and construction projects at an international level.

France has just approved a new law that requires all new buildings to be covered partially with solar panels or green roofs


This mandatory requirement is already in place in some European capitals like Copenhagen, and reinforces the idea of energy efficiency in all new constructions.

Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass integrates itself perfectly well in buildings, preserving the aesthetics of them. This is because of the great variety of the different size configurations, colors, transparencies, shapes, etc. Furthermore, it has the added value of generating clean energy and reducing the CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.

The most important sector exhibition will take place in Atlanta between the 16 and 18 of September


Glassbuild 2014Onyx Solar will be exhibiting its photovoltaic glass in the most important exhibition in the glass industry at the booth #2110.

The latest photovoltaic glass of Onyx Solar will be present, including the Low-e photovoltaic glass which was recently awarded as the most innovative product of the year.

This trade show, that yearly rounds up more than 400 exhibitors and 6.000 visitors, has the support of the National Glass Association and Windows and Doors Dealer Alliance.

ICCRAMOnyx Solar presented the project “The Autonomous Office” during this congress, which has been financed by the European Commission through the LIFE program. The objective of this program is to build an energy self-sufficient office building, where Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass solutions will be key to achieve the expected results.

In the seventh edition of ICAE 2015 the R+D activities were of great relevance through the participation of many field experts as Lorenzo Vallés from the Directorate General of Investigation of the EU, Ulrich Knaack (Delft University of Technology), and the Amanac cluster (Advanced Material and Nanotechnology Cluster).

2 years is the necessary time to recover all of the investment in a photovoltaic curtain wall in cities like Cancun


The generation of free and clean energy together with the energy savings from the passive properties of our photovoltaic glass, allows you to recover your investment in 3 years in places like Los Angeles or Mexico City.


You only need 4 years in cities like Barcelona, Lisbon, San Francisco or Miami. Even in cities with worse weather conditions like New York, Munich or Milan, you still have very attractive payback periods (5 years).

Check out the following link to see the payback period of your city.

Onyx Solar’s Low-e photovoltaic glass has received the winning award to the most innovative glass product by Glass Magazine and the National Glass Association of the US

This glass not only produces electricity, but also matches and sometimes surpasses the properties of conventional low-e glass.

Using our low-e photovoltaic glass, our clients enjoy savings of up to 90% in their electricity bill. With this amount of savings in cities like Los Angeles, the investment is amortized in only 3 years with annual average yields of 40%. Even in places with extreme weather conditions like Alaska, savings can be of up to 30%, and investing in our solutions allows our clients to obtain an annual profitability of 22%.

Onyx Solar keeps its continued commitment to innovation, and together with 22 other large companies became part of the Industrial Platform of the International Research Center in Critical Raw Materials for Advanced Industrial Technologies

ICCRAMICCRAM was born as an initiative of the University of Burgos to encourage increased cooperation between universities and private companies in research and European projects for critical raw materials (TV, cellphones, batteries…) that have to be improved, optimized or substituted.

The presentation of this platform coincided with the celebration of the “International Days in Critical Raw Materials” that took place last month in Burgos (Spain) and where Onyx Solar intervened as speaker.
