Product / Service Description
The solutions replace conventional materials such as glass or ceramics for a constructive material with photovoltaic properties in ventilated façades and roofs, curtain walls, skylights, walkable roof, etc. The idea is to incorporate photovoltaic properties to building envelopes to allow to them to produce clean and free energy from the sun from an aesthetical and feasible point of view.
The solutions developed by Onyx Solar combine active and passive elements. Among the former we count the in-situ generation of electricity, which can be used for self-consumption or connected and sold to the grid at a price previously established generating important incomes. The passive elements are related to the building design in order to enhance the thermal performance, improving thermal insulation and thus reducing the energy demand.
