Onyx Solar has been awarded 2nd year in a row as Best Global PV Glass provider at the Sustainable Awards 2017, organized by BUILD Magazine. This magazine highlights Onyx’s contribution to sustainable design. BUILD Magazine is one of the key publications in the building sector.

Onyx Solar has also been awarded at Spanish Business Excellence Awards by Worldwide Business Review, which recognizes success made by game changers within their respected industry.

With these awards, Onyx Solar becomes the most awarded company in the photovoltaic sector in history.

COCA-COLA/FEMSA HQ in Monterrey (Mexico) integrates 400 units of Onyx Solar PV Glass in its ventilated façade. This solution improves the building’s efficiency, allows its users to see the outside and improve its aesthetics! It also protects its occupants from the extreme temperature changes.

Alfredo de la Rosa, Manager of Internal Civil Works at FEMSA, tells us about his experience with this PV façade that has allowed the building to save 35% of energy consumption.

This ambitious project follows the standards set by Onyx Solar of the continuous perfectionism and differentiation of its photovoltaic glass for buildings. Through the European project PVISITES (Horizon 2020) it will be shown, in real scale, an ambitious portfolio of systems and technologies, providing a powerful and reliable response to the market needs.

PVSITES

On January 28 and 29 this project will be launched with a first meeting with the partners in Bilbao, at the facilities of TECNALIA, the Technological Centre coordinating the project.

Onyx Solar and Tesla were selected by the prestigious Popular Science magazine as one of the best technologies of 2015 in the field of energy worldwide

 

Onyx Solar

Onyx Solar created the first transparent glass that can generate free and clean electricity from the sun, and this has served to be awarded this important recognition. On the other hand, Tesla developed a new generation of batteries that allow a more efficient storage of the energy produced from the glass

Popular Science magazine is at the forefront of science and technology, with more than 7 million monthly readers. In the magazine’s words: “they standout for being brilliant, revolutionary, and setting future trend”.

The Pyramid of Science with its hexagonal photovoltaic glass by Onyx Solar has been awarded by the well-known magazine ENR as the Best Sustainable Project in Colorado of 2015

 

Solar citiesThe Pyramid of Science, in the Denver Botanic Gardens, is a pyramidal shaped building. In it, Onyx Solar has integrated hexagonal photovoltaic glass with crystalline silicon, 100% custom-made.

ENR ((Engineering News Record), is the most important construction magazine worldwide, and belongs to the McGraw Hill Group and Standard and Poor’s.

Onyx Solar photovoltaic glazing in skylights proves to be a high profitability investment worldwide with short paybacks

 

Solar citiesThe use of Onyx Solar photovoltaic glass in skylights generates an average annual IRR greater than 60. Payback time for this type of installations is always less than 3 years, affixing an energy cost lower than 0.03 dollars for the next 30 years.
