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.

Onyx Solar attended in May the kick-off meeting of this European R&D project. The company will work on the development of EverClean technology during the next two years of this Fast Track to Innovation project, together with the partners London South Bank University (U.K), as project coordinator, Opus Materials (U.K), Millidyne (Finland) and CEA (France), in order to ensure a rapid market deployment.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 760311.

Onyx Solar® will attend one of the most important exhibitions in the field of photovoltaics: Solar Power International, which will take place in Las Vegas, United States, from September 12 to 15.

Coinciding with the fulfillment of the ARTESUN project´s first year (November), the third Project Meeting took place at Corning headquarters in Avon, France

Trade ShowFunded  by the European Comission through its Seventh Framework Programme, ARTESUN Project aims to develop organic  photovoltaic  solar cells (OPV) through the implementation of three full-scale prototypes. To do this, Onyx Solar will set up a prototype in which third generation photovoltaic technology for buildings will be tested. To that end, modules will be composed of an organic photovoltaic cells and will be integrated on to a facade with the two previous generations (crystalline and amorphous sillicons), to compare their performances.

INSTALLED IN BÉJAR, IT GENERATES 8,763 KWH PER YEAR AND AVOIDS THE EMISSION OF 5.9 TONS OF CO2 PER YEARPhotovoltaic Transparent Skylight Béjar

This photovoltaic skylight represents a multifunctional solution by generating free electricity from the Sun on-site and adding bioclimatic properties to the building; in this way, it allows day-lighting, it filters harmful UV and IR radiation and it provides thermal inner comfort. The avoidance of premature ageing of materials will extend its lifespan.

This 2,900 SqF PV transparent skylight combines three different types of  a-Si , see-through IG Unit. A total of 110 units provide 6,750 Wp installed.

Self-consumption has been the energy management business model selected for the project, so part of the energy generated feeds the building straight away, and the remaining part is stored in batteries to feed exterior outlets.

MEETING BETWEEN ONYX SOLAR AND WHITE HOUSE REPRESENTATIVES

Álvaro Beltrán, Onyx Solar's General Manager and Juan Verde, the Deputy Assistant Secretary (DAS) for Europe and Eurasia at the U.S. Department of Commerce

During the meeting celebrated in Washington, D.C., Juan Verde, the Deputy Assistant Secretary (DAS) for Europe and Eurasia at the U.S. Department of Commerce showed his satisfaction when learning first hand how fast Building Integrated Photovoltaics has evolved, thanks to the development of new, innovative technologies that in addition to generating clean and free energy, offer a great variety of designs that facilitate its integration within almost any application. “R&D Investment, innovative entrepreneurship in the field of renewable energies, and the commitment of the U.S. society with the environment, will be key factors in reaching a more sustainable growth and to increase the country’s energy independence”, stated DAS Verde when he learned about a new company expanding into the US market.

Thus, the innovation and efficiency showed by Onyx Solar´s solutions have awoken the interest of the Obama Administration in its bet towards distributed generation and the development of renewable energies: “we should encourage citizens and businesses to participate in the generation and distribution of energy actively, in order to promote energy efficiency”, DAS Verde noted.
