Heliatek GmbH has signed a joint development agreement with AGC Glass Europe, focussing on researching and developing the integration of glass and solar films, targeting the delivery of integrated solutions for the glass envelope of buildings.
This will enable the entire glass façades of buildings, including windows, to become highly efficient, cost-effective, solar energy harvesters to reduce a building’s carbon footprint combined with a discrete, aesthetically pleasing, visual appearance.
Thibaud Le Séguillon, CEO of Heliatek, a manufacturer of solar films, says, “Once developed, this will open up all vertical glass surfaces for photovoltaics. They offer a much larger installation area than roof tops that are the focus of today’s solar building installations, plus there are no additional installations costs unlike conventional photovoltaic panels.”
“This agreement fits in perfectly with our strategy of providing affordable and environment-friendly glass solutions to our customers, the building industry and the community at large,” adds Marc Van Den Neste, chief technology officer for AGC Glass Europe, already active in traditional building-integrated photovoltaics. “I am confident that this solution will open up new prospects for creativity and energy efficiency to architects and designers.”
