Our products

Product category: Crystalline PV panels

Crystalline silicon photovoltaic glass

Onyx Solar manufactures crystalline and amorphous silicon photovoltaic glass that fulfills the highest quality and aesthetic standards in the industry. A glass which behaves, from a structural point of view, like the conventional glass used in construction, but also generates clean and free energy form the sun while providing enhanced thermal insulation.

The possible configurations are practically infinite in number, based on the type of glass, its size, shape, thickness, degree of semi-transparency and color, so as to adapt to the requirements of each project.

In construction solutions where generating the maximum amount of energy per m2 is the main objective, the choice of crystalline (mono and polycrystalline) silicon glass is more suitable.

Each crystalline silicon glass module has a power capacity normally ranging from 80 to 160 Wp/m2, depending on the cell density required by the design to enable the entry of more or less daylight.

Advantages:
- Greater nominal power capacity per square meter (Wp/m2).
- Less surface area of the installation for the same power capacity.
- Greater efficiency (up to 16%).

For further information, you can download our Technical Guide (http://onyxsolardownloads.com/docs/ALL-YOU-NEED/Technical_Guide.pdf), which includes all the technical data sheets and structural lay-out of our standard products, offering comprehensive information to facilitate the integration of photovoltaic glazing in your building envelope.

Product category: Thin film PV panels

Amorphous silicon photovoltaic glass

Onyx Solar manufactures both crystalline and amorphous silicon photovoltaic glass that fulfills the highest quality and aesthetic standards in the industry. A glass which behaves, from a structural point of view, like the conventional glass used in construction, but also generates clean and free energy form the sun while providing enhanced thermal insulation.

The possible configurations are practically infinite in number, based on the type of glass, its size, shape, thickness, degree of semi-transparency and color, so as to adapt to the requirements of each project.

Amorphous silicon glass is ideal for conditions of diffuse radiation. The glass is manufactured opaque or with various degrees of semi-transparency: M vision (10%), L vision (20%) or XL vision (30%), which enables the passage of daylight into the building and lets its occupants enjoy a view of the exterior.

What’s more, with Onyx Solar’s transparent photovoltaic glass it is possible to benefit from daylight to light a building’s interior while filtering out the majority of the harmful radiation (ultraviolet and infrared).

Advantages:
- Greater energy production (kWh) at the same installed power capacity (kWp) under conditions of diffused radiation and high temperatures.
- Enables a more uniform aesthetic integration.

For further information, you can download our Technical Guide (http://onyxsolardownloads.com/docs/ALL-YOU-NEED/Technical_Guide.pdf), which includes all the technical data sheets and structural lay-out of our standard products, offering comprehensive information to facilitate the integration of photovoltaic glazing in your building envelope.

Low-E Photovoltaic Glass

Why do Onyx Solar’s solutions add value to any building or construction project?

At Onyx Solar we develop multifunctional building materials and constructive solutions which combine both active (energy generation) and passive (thermal and acoustic insulation, UV and IR filters) properties associated with internal comfort and the improvement of the building’s envelope.

We know that the cheapest energy is that which is saved in the first place. For that reason we have developed the first Low-E Photovoltaic Glass in the market. This glazing benefits from the same characteristics as the traditional Low-emissive glass while adding the ability to generate clean and free energy from the sun. The result is a maximization of both energy savings and the comfort of the building’s occupants. Onyx Solar’s Low-E Photvoltaic Glass allows for the passage of natural light, provides both thermal and acoustic insulation, filters out harmful radiation (ultraviolet and infrared), produces clean and free energy thanks to solar power, avoids CO2 emissions, and features innovative, customizable designs which can be seamlessly integrated into any type of building.

Photovoltaic glass for buildings and construction

At Onyx Solar we manufacture building integrated photovoltaic glass which can replace conventional construction materials in different parts of a building’s envelope – such as rooftops, skylights, windows or façades.

We are committed to the study of energy efficient measures and sustainable technologies which allow us to retrofit existing buildings and design new eco-friendly projects. Our philosophy consists of developing unique and elegant solutions for architectural integration, by combining thermal optimization, photovoltaic generation and aesthetic integration.

Our Building Integrated Photovoltaics systems can turn the roof, the skylight or the curtain wall of a building into a complete, multifunctional, high-performing, solar energy power plant. At Onyx Solar we count on the most extensive and innovative approach to the design and implementation of our solutions.

In this sense, Onyx Solar offers a wide range of materials and services adapted to every client’s needs – from standard photovoltaic glass configurations to 100% customized glass or turnkey solutions.

Our record of completed projects is a testament to our work ethic and focus on innovation: the world’s first walkable photovoltaic floor installed at George Washington University in Virginia (USA), the largest photovoltaic skylight in the world at Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporations headquarters in New Jersey (USA), the illuminated photovoltaic skylights employed in the American Airlines Stadium (home to the NBA franchise Miami Heat) or the photovoltaic skylight installed in the newly-built Tanjong Pagar, the tallest skyscraper in Singapore.

About us

Company details

Onyx Solar is a technology-driven European company that develops and manufactures high efficient, cutting-edge, customized Building Integrated Photovoltaic solutions for buildings, BIPV.

Our multifunctional glass solutions combine both active properties and passive ones, replacing conventional constructive materials for sustainable, efficient ones that allow each building generate its own free and clean electricity from the Sun.

These tailored made solutions can be integrated in different parts of the building’s exterior as photovoltaic ventilated façades, brise-soleils, canopies, skylights, curtain walls, floors, LED-photovoltaic systems or photovoltaic fenestrations systems.

All these solutions provide the architect and the customer the opportunity to count on a great variety of designs for their projects, setting Onyx Solar apart from the traditional photovoltaic industry. Semi-transparency degrees, colors, patterns, designs, size, thickness…are just some of variables that we combine to develop the most innovative, efficient and beautiful BIPV solutions for each project, for each need.

Onyx Solar has an Official Distributor Network that can advice you about how to integrate its photovoltaic solutions within your sustainable building projects. Onyx Solar’s distributors are spread around the five continents in countries such as United States, Mexico, Australia, Singapore, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal, United Emirates or Egypt, among others.
