Onyx Solar® received the acknowledgement at the Sustainable Building Awards 2016
BUILD Magazine awarded Onyx Solar as the best global photovoltaic glass provider at the Sustainable Building Awards 2016. The magazine highlighted Onyx Solar®’s contribution to sustainable design, which plays a key role in the reduction of greenhouse gases, as well as the company’s career, involving more than 70 projects in all five continents.
Onyx Solar was also awarded in the Best Photovoltaic Glass Project category for the circular crystalline-silicon skylights installed in the American Airlines Arena, home to NBA’s Miami Heat.
Onyx Solar© showed the latest advances in the development of its PV glass products.
Onyx Solar© presented the European projects Advanced BIPV and PVSITES through which is developing a new PV glass product portfolio with optimized features in terms of efficiency, format, aesthetics and mechanical performance, laying the foundations for its commercialization.
The Congress took place on 5th-6th October in Málaga within the 7th Forum of Urban Intelligence and Sustainability which received more than 2.800 visitors from 20 countries worldwide, counting on representation from more than 800 public and private entities.
Onyx Solar© will give a presentation about the holistic energy retrofitting measures undertaken in a single-family house located in Gotarrendura (Ávila, Spain) within the framework of the European project HERB. Thanks to these measures, the energy consumption of the house was reduced by 80%. Among the most remarkable measures, the integration of Onyx Solar©´s amorphous silicon photovoltaic glass into the south and north façades can be spotlighted by ensuring constant energy production during the whole year, with no dependence on seasonal cycles.
The seminars are organized by the Provincial Energy Agency of Ávila and will take place on November 7th, 8th and 9th, counting on several thematic areas and finalizing with technical visits. Representatives of companies and institutions as Red Electrica de España, EREN, Tecnalia and Zabala will participate among the most distinguishable guest speakers.

Marriott Hotels incorporate Onyx Solar®’s PV glass. The design with Onyx has almost no limits.
Onyx Solar®´s photovoltaic glass has been integrated in an oval-shaped photovoltaic roof, located at the Marriott hotel in Imperial Beach, California. Soorya Unlimited installed the crystalline silicon glass, custom-designed with more than 55 different shapes, to achieve this great aesthetic appearance.
The integrated solution has contributed to the building being awarded the LEED Silver environmental certificate. It will also enable the generation of 58,500 kWh annually, destined for the building’s self-consumption, thereby preventing the emission of 39 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere. Onyx Solar combines once again design, sustainability and profitability.

Onyx Solar© helps get preferential financing conditions for projects worth more than one million euros in photovoltaic glass.
Now it is possible to integrate our PV glass for a lower upfront payment than for conventional glass. The upfront payment could be as low as 15% of the value of photovoltaic glass, and the rest will be paid in semiannual installments. These installments could be usually offset by the energy generated energy produced by the photovoltaic glass and the energy savings derived from the building’s thermal insulation, and the financing period could be as high as 12 years.
This operation will not consume internal credit lines, and the interest rate of the operation will be lower than those prevailing in the county in which the project would be located. For a low upfront payment, it is possble to enjoy all the advantages of Onyx Solar´s photovoltaic glass, which is much more profitable than conventional glass, with an average payback of less than 2 years and a 70% IRR around the world.
