BeyondPV – itself a leading developer and designer of photovoltaic technologies including monocrystalline silicon panels and modules – has also agreed to work with ClearVue on ongoing research and development and product improvement.
For ClearVue, the deal represents a “significant step forward” for the company in ensuring the supply of high-quality high-performance solar strip modules – a key component of the Insulated Glass Units (IGU) ClearVue uses in its solar windows.
The solar strip cells go around the edges of the IGUs, while the lamination interlayer between the glass uses ClearVue’s patented proprietary nano and micro particles, as well as its spectral selective coating on the rear external surface.
“BeyondPV’s investment into production facilities for creating the ClearVue solar strip modules, a critical component in the ClearVue IGU design and products is a wonderful testament to the commitment that BeyondPV has demonstrated in the ClearVue product and our vision for solar PV generating smart windows and facades,” said ClearVue chair Victor Rosenberg in a statement.BeyondPV President, Dr Wei-Lun Lu said his company could offer a dedicated team of world leading solar specialists.
energy sources are used, the demand for fossil fuels is reduced.
“(We) are on board to work with ClearVue to grow this significant new opportunity together,” he said.
The deal is the latest in a series of key milestones for ClearVue, including the February completion of the company’s first commercial demonstration – a solar glass atrium at the entrance to a suburban Perth shopping centre.The installation at the Warwick Grove Shopping Centre – pictured at the top of the story – will be used alongside battery storage to power lighting, signage and a display screen at the retail outlet.
