2,300 sqm of polycrystalline photovoltaic glass manufactured by Onyx Solar will protect Plaza Olivar’s passersby and power the building.

 

By the hand of the architect Enrique Ruiz Gutierrez, an old distribution center of the company LUMEN in Mexico City is undergoing a complete revitalization into a shopping center of more than 40,000 square meters. In it, the largest photovoltaic skylight of the country (2,300 sqm) will feature 800 units of Onyx Solar’s PV glass.

In addition to generating enough electricity to power the lighting of the common areas, elevators, and escalators, the photovoltaic glass is walkable, which helps its cleaning. It will also protect the passersby from the sun and the extreme temperature, increasing the comfort inside of the building.

Onyx Solar’s transparent photovoltaic glass will generate clean electricity to feed the new factory that Heineken is building in Meoqui (Chihuahua, Mexico). 

The new plant will have an initial capacity of producing 5 million hectoliters per year. It plans to be the greenest factory of the country. By the year 2020, the 66% of the power used has to come from renewable sources.

The transparent PV glass will be installed at the offices’ building and other process areas. It will enable the building to be energy self-sufficient. It will also improve its energy efficiency and thermal comfort. It will have a perfect integration thanks to the possibility of customizing the glass in terms of shape, color, size, and degree of transparency.

Blanca Brambila (Chief of Corporate Social Responsibility at Heineken Mexico), Eusebio Reynoso (Heineken Meoqui Brewery Manager) and José María Lozano (Head of Technologies at the Heineken Meoqui’s plant) tell us about the project and its collaboration with Onyx Solar.

 

Hawaii PV Brise SoleilOnyx Solar is currently developing a project in Hawaii, a true challenge that proves the versatility and global scope of the company, capable of accomplishing projects anywhere, even if they are located in the most isolated islands on Earth.

The project consists of a customized BIPV canopy that will be completely integrated around the roof edge, enabling the building to generate free and clean energy for self-consumption thanks to the Sun. It is composed of rectangular double laminated glazing units based on monocrystalline Silicon active material and other triangular units fully customized to match with the canopy lay-out.
