Building Integrated Photovoltaics 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 floor, etc. In this case, photovoltaic properties are integrated to building envelopes to allow to them produce clean and free energy from the sun from an aesthetical and feasible point of view.

The Building Integrated Photovoltaics solutions developed by Onyx Solar combine active and passive elements. 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.

Moreover, when photovoltaic is integrated into the building, you guarantee yourself that the energy price will remain unchanged for the next 30 years. This is vital considering the current trend of increasing prices.

One of Onyx Solar’s main competitive advantages has to do with their technological Independence and surveillance. In Onyx Solar they deal with all photovoltaics technologies available now and in the future, which is possible thanks to their R&D strategy that allows them to be up to date with all the latest industry’s developments.
