France has just approved a new law that requires all new buildings to be covered partially with solar panels or green roofs

 

This mandatory requirement is already in place in some European capitals like Copenhagen, and reinforces the idea of energy efficiency in all new constructions.

Photovoltaic Skylight

Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass integrates itself perfectly well in buildings, preserving the aesthetics of them. This is because of the great variety of the different size configurations, colors, transparencies, shapes, etc. Furthermore, it has the added value of generating clean energy and reducing the CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.

Bordeaux Skylight by Onyx SolarOnyx Solar has participated in a historical building’s retrofit located in the center of Bordeaux for the building supervising organization of the city, the Bordeaux Métropole Aménagement (BMA). The project – along Garonne River and close to the port – has been designed by Jean Louis Montagnier and will be a business center for some of the corporations operating in Bordeaux.

Above its five floors has been placed a skylight which combines glasses with different colour gradation and various transparency degrees, supplied by Onyx Solar. They were customized to fit perfectly in the sustainable design of the building.
