The LUCIA building of the University of Valladolid has become the most sustainable building in Europe and all the Northern Hemisphere, due to aspects such as energy savings and respect for the environment.

This building, clear example of sustainable architecture, integrates two photovoltaic skylights and a curtain wall. These means for energy generation employ the first transparent Low-e PV glass made of amorphous silicon, manufactured by Onyx Solar.

With an installed power capacity of 6k Wp it generates 5,550k Wh of electricity yearly and prevents the release of 3.7 tons of CO2. This paradigm of energetic efficiency saves up to 60% of power consumption. No wonder it has achieved the LEED Platinum certification.
