With more than 600 exhibitors, Solar Power International is one of the highlights of the solar energy sector for this 2016. Thousands of attendees will have the opportunity to check the new developments presented by Onyx Solar® at our stand, which will be integrated within the ICEX pavilion.

Onyx Solar® already enjoys great recognition in the United States; among other accolades, they were awarded “Most Innovative Glass 2015” by the National Glass Association, for their low-emissive photovoltaic glass.

See you at booth # W819!

Onyx Solar® will participate in the most important convention in the field of architecture and design in the US, which will be held from May 19 to May 21 in Philadelphia.

Thousands of attendees will have the opportunity to see the novelties presented by Onyx Solar® and its Low-e photovoltaic glass, awarded by the National Glass Association of America as the 2015 Most Innovative Product.

Visit us at booth #848. Register here to attend the convention for free.

Onyx Solar has been awarded for launching the first low-e photovoltaic glass. It is a glass that improves insulation and lowers the electricity bill in buildings up to 90%

Besides producing free clean energy from the Sun, Onyx Solar’s low emissivity photovoltaic glass equals or exceeds the properties of similar conventional glass:

· U-Value: up to 0,13 BTU/hft2Fª (0,74W/m2K)
· Solar Factor/SHGC: from 10 to 40%, which makes our photovoltaic glass a perfect candidate in order to achieve a suitable balance between inner temperature andHVAC energy savings.
· Selective  UV and IR Harmful Radiation Filter: it filters 85 to 95% out of the total infrared radiation and 99% of the ultraviolet radiation.
· Light Transmission: transparency levels ranging from 10 to 30%, which allow the entry of natural light.
· Exterior Reflection: from 7 to 9%.

This glazing shows the same characteristics than a traditional Low-E glass with the ability of generating free electricity from the sun

At Onyx Solar we know that the cheapest energy is the energy that is not consumed. For that reason our photovoltaic glass besides offering free electricity from the sun, provide thermal and sound insulation, filter out UV and IR harmful radiation and allow daylight.

Low-e PV Glass

Let us introduce you the main technical properties of the first Low-E photovoltaic glass in the market:

· U-Value: up to 0,13 BTU/hft2Fª ( 0,74W/m2K)
· Solar Factor or SHGC: from 10 to 40%, which makes our photovoltaic glass a perfect candidate in order to achieve a suitable balance between inner temperature and HVAC energy savings.
· Selective UV and IR Harmful Radiation Filter: it filters 85 to 95% out of the total infrared radiation and 99% of the ultraviolet radiation.
· Light Transmission: transparency levels ranging from 10 to 30%, which allow the entry of natural light.
· Exterior Reflection: from 7 to 9% Low-e PV Glass- Technical Guide
