The Science and Technology Center is a unique project that houses the largest Building Integrated PV System of Cyprus.
This project converts the Cyprus International University as an example in generating power through solar energy.
In Cyprus, solar power panels are usually installed with a single type plan configuration. However, in the context of the present project, Onyx Solar photovoltaic glass has been installed on the façade of the building integrating the photovoltaic installation in the same construction structure.
The glass is made of crystalline silicon, measures 1,245x1,849mm, with a high transparent degree.
The total area of the installation is around 1,000 m2 installed in a façade with a total power capacity of 21.4 KWp.
From the university, a sustainable education is being promoted because is the very first step needed to help save our environment.
