This iconic project involves the integration of 42 monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic glasses which measures 1,700x1,000 mm and have a 47% light transmittance. Each PV glass unit has a peak power of 177 Wp and glass configuration of 4T+4T mm with a 12 mm argon chamber.
Argon-filled chambers maximize solar panel performance by providing thermal insulation, sound absorption, and environmental protection: they reduce acoustic interference, enhance durability, and contribute to sustainable energy solutions. All these mechanical properties of our photovoltaic glass will contribute to improving the comfort and experience of diners.
Located in a prime location (Duque de Sesto 27 Street, Madrid), Omeraki Restaurant offers a remarkable experience where culinary excellence takes center stage. With a focus on quality ingredients and a menu that showcases a blend of Mediterranean and international flavors, Omeraki promises to delight food enthusiasts.
Omeraki Restaurant aims to maintain an ongoing dialogue with sustainability and the environment, without compromising the aesthetic values and comfort that we have always sought for their customers. In addition to photovoltaic glasses, they have implemented other measures that make it a benchmark for sustainability: aerothermal as an energy source and radiant heating and cooling systems, tables made from recycled wood, utensil holders made from volcanic stones, and smart toilets for water conservation are just a few examples of their commitment to sustainability.
