Onyx Solar participated in the Passivhaus Open Day celebrated in Arcones, Segovia (Spain)
Surprisingly, Arcones nineteenth centurie´s house is capable of mantaining its temperature at 20 degrees Celsius for every year without any air conditioning equipment. In September of this year, the Passivhaus Building Platform (PEP) organized the open visit to this building where the retrofit measures were carried out, in order to demonstrate how the Passivhaus standard could be achieved.
Directly related to the implementation of this standard, Onyx Solar and PEP, along with other partners, are collaborating in EUROPHIT Project, funded by the European Commission, whose main objective is significantly increasing the quality of one of the most common retrofit methods: carried out gradually over time or “step by step”, prioritizing actions based on its cost-effectiveness relation. Thus, Onyx Solar photovoltaic glass constructive solutions and Passivhaus join forces for a new generation of sustainable buildings.
