Onyx Solar has designed and developed the photovoltaic roof and façade for the Cabinet House installed in the MAXXI museum, the last work of Zaha Hadid. The Cabinet House is an ecological prototype based on a new division of the space following the urban contemporary lifestyle: less squares meters and most of them for social life.
Firstly using wood, secondly by minimizing space and thus the construction materials being used, and lastly by adding the possibility of collecting rain water and sun energy in such a way that the architects are offering a more sustainable model than the short-sighted, monotonous production of the building market today.

The project is located in a public yard in front of the MAXXI museum and it’s aimed to become a mediator between this iconic building and the reality surrounding it, offering the visitors a peaceful place to stop by in the middle of Rome.
At Onyx Solar we are lucky to have an excellent team of professionals in each department. Human resources are the roots for any successful company and we know it. Within these professionals we have a Chief Technical Officer (CTO) with a large experience within the PV sector and more precisely, in Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), regardless his youth. This knowledge has been acknowledged (sorry about that) by companies and institutions organizing conferences within our sector of activity and they have invited our CTO to their events in order to spread that “wisdom”.

Thus, PhD. Del Caño has participated in conferences organized by Expansión, the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA), Brasil and Colombia Green Building Councils and lately, Hong Kong’s Architects Institute. And we appreciate this events in a special manner as we are aware we are working in an incipient, not yet developed sector where there is still a lot of unknown issues. That’s why we consider this promotion/dissemination events as key activities, and that’s why we want to share this presentations with all of you.
Today we have uploaded the presentation our CTO prepared for the “Paving the Way for BIPV” conference organized by the EPIA last week in Madrid. We are waiting for the organization to send us also the video, which we will upload into our YouTube channel in the next days. And we do all of this to listen to your comments, thoughts, feelings…so let us know what do you think.
