Valladolid Classroom Building
The University of Valladolid decided to trust Onyx Solar for a second time after the great success of the Lucia building PV skylight installation. This building has become the most sustainable building in Europe and the entire northern hemisphere.

Reduction in HVAC energy demands
Internal Rate of Return
- Total Area - 103 M2
- Electricity generated in 35 years - 374,600 kWh
- Total lighting points operating 4 hours per day in 35 years - 736 lighting points
- CO2 emmisions avoided in 35 years - 251 Tons of CO2
- Barrels of oil saved in 35 years - 220 barrels per m2
This time, Onyx Solar leaded a project for the installation of parasols in one of the university’s classroom buildings. Apart from providing the glass modules, Onyx Solar also coordinated both mechanical and electrical installation for this project.
The parasols installed, using monocrystalline silicon modules in different sizes, provide shade to the classrooms while generating energy from the sun at the same time.
This project has an installed peak power of 9.7 kW and an estimated generation of 12,895 kWh per year.
Established in the 13th century, the University of Valladolid is one of the oldest universities in the world. The university has 32,000 undergraduate students and more than 2,000 teachers.
