Onyx Solar is involved in the retrofit of this historical building that preserves Eiffel’s spirit thanks to its metal framework
Our new project in France is a photovoltaic skylight developed in collaboration with SPIE, a French company dedicated to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of energy facilities.
Located in Brittany, the skylight is composed by semi-transparent, low emissivity photovoltaic glasses which generates 42 kWh per sqm/year.
A thin layer included in the configuration of this low emissivity photovoltaic glass enhances both the acoustic and thermal isolation and filters out the ultraviolet and infrared radiations, damaging for health. This configuration enhances thermal inner comfort while it promotes large savings in HVAC systems, also avoiding the so common greenhouse effect in glazed buildings.
