Onyx Solar photovoltaic ventilated façade offers, among its many other advantages, the possibility of reducing by 50% the cooling requirements of buildings compared to traditional facade isolation systems.
The study carried out by the University of the Basque Country in collaboration with the Construction Quality Control Laboratory of the Basque Government, reveals that Onyx Solar photovoltaic facade has a particularly significant cooling performance during the warmest months.
This is a remarkable fact since approximately 40% of the world population lives in warm areas. This reduction in cooling needs in buildings represents an important energy saving precisely where it is most needed, in the buildings of our cities, which are responsible for at least 40% of the global energy consumption.
