Our feasibilities studies go a step further and include a calculation of the energy savings thanks to the simulation tool Green Building Studio.

Onyx Solar’s PV glass active properties not only enable buildings to produce their own free and clean energy, but also save a lot of energy, thanks to the improvement in the thermal envelope of the buildings in which the glass is integrated. It also increases the building’s efficiency, saving energy and money to its users.

The solar PV ventilated façade installed in our headquarters is an example of functionality and beauty.

 

 

In 2014 the electric installation company Del Nogal installed this amazing solution using 310 units of laminated Onyx Solar PV glass. The installation was faster and easier than what people might think. As you can see the result is stunning!

PV Ventilated façades are an aesthetical and functional solution that not only dress any type of building, but also generate electricity and improve the efficiency of the building, saving money and energy.

Changing the way we think about how buildings and communities are planned, constructed, maintained and operated is what LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) does.

The first LEED building was certified in 2000. Since then, thousands of energy-efficient, green buildings have been built across the globe. Integrating Onyx Solar’s PV Glass contributes to obtain LEED certification thanks to its energy generation and Low-e properties. 

Some examples of LEED certified buildings that integrate our PV glass are the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Marriott’s Pier South hotel in Imperial Beach (California), The LUCIA building at the University of Valladolid or the Tanjong Pagar center in Singapore, between others!

Construction works keep on going in The Union National Bank, one of the main Egyptian banks, located in in the financial area of Giza, in Cairo.

The bank has decided to integrate 439m2 (4,725sqft) of solar PV glass manufactured by Onyx Solar in its façade and rooftop. The result: an amazing blue amorhous silicon façade and a monocrystalline silicon rooftop that will generate free and clean energy. We look forward to see it complete!

EverClean is a transparent, durable, cost-effective and permanent self-cleaning solution for photovoltaic glass.

EverClean

Onyx Solar attended in May the kick-off meeting of this European R&D project. The company will work on the development of EverClean technology during the next two years of this Fast Track to Innovation project, together with the partners London South Bank University (U.K), as project coordinator, Opus Materials (U.K), Millidyne (Finland) and CEA (France), in order to ensure a rapid market deployment.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 760311.

Onyx Solar ® takes part of the transformation of the old Coal Loader in North Sydney into a center of sustainability by supplying 64 extra-large units of PV Glass for its colonnade.

Instalación-pérgola-en-Sydney-1

More than 60 units of Onyx Solar’s PV Glass are being installed at North Sydney Coal Loader’s colonnade. Each glass unit is 3100x1744mm (10.17 x 5.72 ft.) big and has 626Wp.

The colonnade is part of the Coal Loader Green Roof Project in Sydney, that is transforming an ex-industrial site to a place where people can learn about sustainability in everyday life, meet and get inspired!
