Learn everything you need to know about designing with photovoltaic glass by the hand of the Global Leader in PV Glass for buildings.

AIA-Course

Understanding solar PV glass from a technical viewpoint and from an economic aspect are the main goals of our free Webinar accredited by the AIA (The American Institute of Architects).

Recognize the main photovoltaic technologies commercially available in the market for their incorporation into the building´s skin. Acquire the knowledge to evaluate which PV glass will be a better fit for a project and analyze the economics behind PV glass applications. ROI and Payback time are outstanding with this product!

This registered course offers Learning Unit Credits to AIA members, so don’t miss this opportunity to learn about this game changer product by the hand of the global leader in PV Glass for buildings!

 

Onyx Solar®’s glass, in addition to its sustainability and its efficiency, stands out due to its unlimited range of configurations, adapting to the design of each project.

Our PV glass integrates perfectly into buildings while producing free and clean energy from the sun. It also reduces the CO2 emissions to the atmosphere!

The unlimited range of configurations, to which we can add the possibility of including different colors, finishes, shapes, sizes and thickness, make Onyx Solar the ideal partner for incorporating PV systems into the fabric of all types of building without compromising design.

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 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.

Check in our ROI Map the Feasibility Study of a photovoltaic skylight in your city. If you do not find the city you are looking for, please contact us.

Solar citiesThe US Congress has approved the extension of 30% solar investment tax credits (ITC) till 2019. These incentives give the owners of a solar installation a 30% tax credit for the total cost of their solar system, which will promote the adoption of this renewable energy in the US.

Investment in photovoltaic energy in the US is already highly attractive, especially in photovoltaic glass integrated into buildings, which provides a return on investment as high as 100% with a payback period of a few months.

 

In its first year, the project Advanced BIPV has allowed Onyx Solar the optimization and continued improvement of its photovoltaic glass. This is translating into a more transparent and larger glass

 

HORIZONTE 2020 - Onyx Solar

Without question, the first great success was the acceptance of the ambitious proposal of Onyx Solar to the invitation of Instrument SME PHASE II (This was in Oct. 2014, and to this invitation 580 proposals were summited, coming from the most innovative SMEs companies across Europe, where Onyx Solar was the only Castilian company selected with its Advanced BIPV model).

With this proposal, Onyx Solar reinforces its positioning at the forefront of innovation at a European level through the development of a new generation of photovoltaic glass with optimized characteristics regarding its presentation, mechanical resistance, and high vision glass performance.

Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic solutions are the perfect match for the new climate agreement signed in Paris during the month of December in the UN Climate Conference in Paris COP21

The agreement was adopted by 200 countries to fight against climate change and create a 100% renewable energy model.

Companies like Samsung, Coca-Cola, Pfizer, and Novartis are already contributing to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, and taking better care of our planet, thanks to the bioclimatic solutions of Onyx Solar. These solutions also yield great return on the investment, and energy savings of up to 100%..

The Dubai Frame is the most impressive building in the city, rising 150 meters by 105 of width, and with a rectangular shape right in the middle of Zabeel Park in Dubai

 


MarcoFotoPrincipal2Onyx Solar has participated in this project with a 1200 m2 facade integration in amorphous silicon
. The glass, in golden color, is a triple laminated glass, 20% transparency level, and a total installed power of 38 kWp.

The Dubai Frame is strategically located, and allows all its visitors to enjoy the views of all the other architectonical monuments in the city in a unique setting. It is considered one of the new world attractions of 2015, and won the ThyssenKrupp Elevator Architecture award in 2009.
