Onyx Solar - transparent glass that generates clean and free electricity


Onyx Solar designs and produces photovoltaic glass which generates free and clean energy from the sun, provides high thermal and acoustic insulation and protection from harmful solar radiation (filtering out 99% of ultraviolet radiation and 95% of infrared radiation). The company is headquartered in Avila (Spain), has offices in New York and Beijing, and distributors in over 30 countries.

The glass produced by the Spanish company minimizes the energy demand of any property, while increasing its value. The glass can be produced using two cutting-edge technologies (amorphous silicon and crystalline silicon), is fully customisable in terms of size, shape, colour, degree of transparency and finishing, and is able to replace conventional glass in different parts of the buildings (skylights, curtain walls, canopies, and the building envelope in general).

With over a hundred projects executed in five continents, Onyx Solar has taken part in large-scale projects for leading companies such as Samsung, FEMSA/Coca-Cola, Pfizer and Novartis. The company provides advice to preeminent architects worldwide, such as Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, SOM, KPF, ASGG or Rafael Vinoly, and has worked for the most important construction companies in the world (ACS, Skanska, Turner, Jacobs, Ferrovial).

The company's factory situated in Avila (Spain) is a facility of 8,000 m2 with cutting-edge technology and machinery, enabling Onyx Solar to achieve a production capacity of 500,000 m2 of amorphous and crystalline silicon photovoltaic glass.

The range of photovoltaic solutions has been developed by a highly-qualified multidisciplinary team of physicists, architects and engineers, with a total of over 15 years’ experience in engineering and the installation of photovoltaic technology.

Onyx Solar exports over 95% of its production. The main market is the USA, but the company delivers projects all around the globe.
