Ritec International, Glass Company of the Year 2009, will demonstrate at Ecobuild 2-4 March, London, UK, its latest developments to increase the lifetime efficiency of solar panels as well as maximize energy savings in buildings through innovative durable surface protection systems. This includes the award-winning ClearShield System for the renovation, protection and maintenance of glass, and the innovative Ritecoat System for metals, powder coatings and painted surfaces. Thanks to the ClearShield System, this innovative glass has durable surface protection with proven “non-stick“ easy-clean performance. For all types of new and existing solar panels, ClearShield High Light Glass reduces cleaning requirements by 50%, on average, and maintains the original light transmission to provide higher energy conversion efficiency by up to six times. For thermal panels used for heating, this higher performance means improved efficiency, especially during times of limited sunlight. For photovoltaic (PV) cells used for electricity generation, this means keeping the initial peak watt performance and increasing the cumulative watt hours.
