“A HIGHLY INNOVATIVE SOLUTION”

Francisco Valbuena, architect of the Architectural Technical Unit at Valladolid University, talks about his experience with Onyx Solar

“Onyx Solar has been a preferential technologic partner in the development of our project developing a highly innovative solution such as the photovoltaic skylights.These are very attractive systems for the sustainable building and LEED certification”, said Francisco Valbuena.

The LUCIA building at the Valladolid University has been designed to become a “Net Zero Energy Building” where all the energy sources are renewable. Besides generating clean energy, Onyx Solar photovoltaic skylight will allow natural lighting while filtering UV radiation, reducing CO2 emissions, and providing thermal/acoustical insulation. All of these characteristics have contributed in winning the LEED Platinum rating for the building.
