The University of Washington and Millersville University (Pennsylvania) will integrate Onyx Solar’s transparent PV Glass on their campus as part of their commitment to sustainability.

The University of Washington’s project, designed by renowned Perkins + Will and constructed by Skanska USA, will feature 7,000sqft of transparent PV glass manufactured by Onyx Solar in their “Life Science Building”, dedicated to R&D activities. The project is set to be completed by the end of the year.

Millersville University will integrate Onyx Solar’s transparent PV glass in the curtain wall located at The Lombardo Welcome Center, its first Net Zero Energy Building. It is scheduled to be opened in January of 2018.

These two American universities join others such as Valladolid University and George Washington University in Virginia, that are already generating their own free, clean energy thanks to Onyx’s game-changer product.

Onyx Solar is working on a Photovoltaic Greenhouse project that aims to demonstrate the technical, economic and environmental feasibility of a greenhouse integrating photovoltaic glass.

The result is a Distributed Energy System capable of obtaining the necessary energy for self-consumption operation.

Therefore, the greenhouse will accomplish the function of vegetable production recovering at the same time the necessary electric energy to cover the needs of its integrated microgrid.

Onyx Solar will provide 605 m2 of amorphous silicon PV glass with different transparency degrees to the skylight situated at the Santuario Santo Cristo de los Milagros in the Dominican city of Bayaguana.

The Sanctuary was designed by Dominican architect Marcos Nuñez. The construction will be a place of pilgrimage that could hold up to 1,500 people.  In addition, it will have facilities for activities, training, and meditation. It has been designed to be environmentally friendly.

We look forward to seeing it finished!

Onyx Solar has been awarded 2nd year in a row as Best Global PV Glass provider at the Sustainable Awards 2017, organized by BUILD Magazine. This magazine highlights Onyx’s contribution to sustainable design. BUILD Magazine is one of the key publications in the building sector.

Onyx Solar has also been awarded at Spanish Business Excellence Awards by Worldwide Business Review, which recognizes success made by game changers within their respected industry.

With these awards, Onyx Solar becomes the most awarded company in the photovoltaic sector in history.

COCA-COLA/FEMSA HQ in Monterrey (Mexico) integrates 400 units of Onyx Solar PV Glass in its ventilated façade. This solution improves the building’s efficiency, allows its users to see the outside and improve its aesthetics! It also protects its occupants from the extreme temperature changes.

Alfredo de la Rosa, Manager of Internal Civil Works at FEMSA, tells us about his experience with this PV façade that has allowed the building to save 35% of energy consumption.

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.
