SunEwat - laminated safety glass with embedded photovoltaic cells
Buildings account for about 40% of CO2 emissions in Europe*. To address this challenge , the cutting edge technologies and glass solutions deployed in the SunEwat range are transforming new and renovated facades into smart membranes, generating and managing energy, while integrating seamlessly into facades.
SunEwat’s environmental performance and efficiency ratings are consistent with nearly zero-energy building (NZEB) standards. While its embedded photovoltaic cells deliver high levels of energy and optimal comfort for occupants, SunEwat also offers facade designers limitless architectural and aesthetic options, ensuring seamless integration into buildings.
The SunEwat range is divided into two types of products:
Transparent energy-generating glass solutions for facade elements: Vision Square, Vision Stripe, SmartSkin
Opaque energy-generating glass solutions for spandrels and cladding: Artlite Active, Lacobel T Active, Stopray Active
Art & Communication
By enabling architects and designers to take an artistic approach to the vision glass elements as well as the spandrels and cladding components, SunEwat delivers elegant solutions that showcase the use of green energy while maintaining the glazing’s transparency and functionality. Fully customisable: architects and designers can arrange and deploy glass sizes and photovoltaic cells as they wish in order to create their own original designs.
Corporate social responsibility: promoting a good corporate reputation through an eco-friendly building.
Efficiency & Payback
SunEwat strikes the perfect balance between aesthetics and performance. SunEwat focuses on efficiency, delivering opaque and aesthetically pleasing integrated solutions for spandrels and cladding components with a payback period similar to that of traditional rooftop photovoltaic units. No compromise on aesthetics: Facade glass can be active with no negative visual impact whatsoever.
Competitive pricing: Deploying AGC’s innovative technologies in energy-generating facades means record short payback periods .
Building autonomy: Sensors built into the insulating glass unit can activate the building management system .
