It’s being a good year so far! Onyx Solar has been awarded as “Company of the year (Solar Energy)” in the ACQ5 Global Awards 2017. Our CEO Alvaro Beltran was also awarded as “Gamechanger of the year”.

ACQ Annual Award Programs recognize organizations and individuals that have achieved outstanding commercial success in designated areas of expertise.

This week Onyx Solar was at the 33rd European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, EU PVSEC 2017, which took place in Amsterdam.

We talked about how one of the main challenges for the BIPV community is bridging the gap between the highly innovative and fast-changing PV supply side and the solid construction industry demand side, and we provided some solutions to facilitate the increase of BIPV deployment.

As usual, the international players from the BIPV community and the construction industry as well as other visitors showed interest for our PV glass, for its amazing properties and also thanks to our great portfolio.

PVSEC is the largest international Conference for Photovoltaic research, technologies and applications, and at the same time a top international PV Industry Exhibitions. It gathers the global PV community to conduct business, to network and to present and discuss the latest developments and innovations in Photovoltaics. It is the world-renowned science-to-science, business-to-business and science-to-industry platform with a full and only focus on the global PV Solar sector.

The deadlines established by the European Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings (EPBD) are approaching. From January 1st, 2019, all government’s new buildings must be designed to be a nearly zero energy building. From January 2021, this will apply to all the European buildings.

Onyx Solar provides the best option to fulfill these goals. Its photovoltaic glass is able to replace conventional glass without sacrificing aesthetics and design.



Onyx Solar is part of the project PVCOM, which aims to develop new photovoltaic technologies and materials and to demonstrate its application as a multifunctional material complying with the specific needs and requirements of the Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) and Smart Cities markets. This approach will be done for BIPV, urban furniture, and urban mobility applications through the combination of CIGS technology and transparent fiber reinforced composite material as innovative module manufacturing technology.

Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass continues to add acknowledgments to its record! This time, our Photovoltaic Façade has conquered the jury’s heart in 2017 Best of Products Awards, organized by the prestigious Architect’s Newspaper. They have recognized the excellent combination of innovation, aesthetics, performance, and value provided by this solution.



Brunel University, located in Uxbridge, west London, is installing transparent photovoltaic glass manufactured by Onyx Solar in its Wilfred Brown Building’s curtain wall. The building features 42 units of PV glass with different sizes; some of them are even 2.6 m wide! This project is part of the remodeling of this 4,710sqm building, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year.


We were selected together with the most innovative companies in Europe to participate in World Smart Energy Week Osaka.
We got a great feedback from all the visitors, who were impressed by our PV glass properties.
Japan joins the RevolutiOnyx!



Onyx Solar will be at LEAF International 2017, that is taking place the 12th and 13th October in Berlin. The event is celebrating its 17th edition and brings together senior decision makers from leading international architectural practices, contractors, and suppliers to share ideas and discuss the latest industry developments.

Onyx Solar will also feature its products at GITEX Technology Week, which takes place the 8th-12th October in Dubai.

2,300 sqm of polycrystalline photovoltaic glass manufactured by Onyx Solar will protect Plaza Olivar’s passersby and power the building.


By the hand of the architect Enrique Ruiz Gutierrez, an old distribution center of the company LUMEN in Mexico City is undergoing a complete revitalization into a shopping center of more than 40,000 square meters. In it, the largest photovoltaic skylight of the country (2,300 sqm) will feature 800 units of Onyx Solar’s PV glass.

In addition to generating enough electricity to power the lighting of the common areas, elevators, and escalators, the photovoltaic glass is walkable, which helps its cleaning. It will also protect the passersby from the sun and the extreme temperature, increasing the comfort inside of the building.
