PHOTOVOLTAIC FAÇADE – VASTEK GROUP OFFICE
VASTEK GROUP OFFICE
Onyx Solar has provided Photovoltaic Glass to create a Photovoltaic Ventilated Façade for a building office of Vastek Group, located in Incheon, South Korea.
The project consists of a prototype of an elevator that can self-supply its energy consumption through the photovoltaic glass. The main idea is to carry out such types of applications on a larger scale.
- Total Area - 92 M2
- Electricity generated in 35 years - 138,046 kWh
- Total lighting points operating 4 hours per day in 35 years - 271 lighting points
- CO2 emmisions avoided in 35 years - 92 Tons of CO2
- Barrels of oil saved in 35 years - 81 barrels per m2
The installation is composed of 54 Colored Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Glass modules with no transparency degree, in order to maximize energy production.
All the glass modules supplied have the unique measure of 1,700x1,000 mm, and have been manufactured in 3 different colors according to the aesthetic requested by the client: orange, pink and green.
Onyx Solar’s glass also stands out thanks to its unlimited range of configurations and design options including colors. The PV active material is black by nature (faces the sun) while the interior of the glass displays an aluminum-like color. Then, Onyx Solar follows this process and laminates afterwards the glass using a colored interlayer (PVB), getting the color from both sides of the glass.
This is not, however, the only process to offer a wide range of colors. Besides using colored PVB interlayers – this process results in transparent colored PV Glass, Onyx Solar implements other techniques to get to the desired color, such as solid colors through screen-printing processes and ceramic-frits too.
Depending on the light intensity, the color shade may vary both in reflection and transmittance, on both sides. There are two selectors available:
· Onyx Solar + Vanceva , for transparent color PV glass: over 2,000 different color combinations.
· Onyx Solar + RAI, for non-transparent color PV glass: over 213 different colors.
