With greater urbanization of cities, vertical glass facades are rapidly increasing in high rises and iconic developments across Asia.
Smart use of vertical space (facade) for power generation on ZEB (low to medium-rise) and SLEB (high rise) buildings with the latest high-efficiency BIPV solutions.
Rooftop solar photovoltaic systems often face capacity limitations due to constrained roof space generally occupied by water tanks, HVAC and other systems. With greater urbanisation of cities, vertical glass facades are rapidly increasing in high rises and iconic developments across Asia. Glass curtainwalls often focus on maximizing natural light while controlling the solar heat gain through the glazing.
Currently, the major trend of Super Low Energy Buildings (SLEB) and Net Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) as the path to building sustainability and increased property values can be further realized with energy-generating facades that meet the glass performance requirements.
AGC’s new BIPV solutions will address how easy it is to blend seamlessly to vertical or horizontal building glass designs. The latest high-efficiency BIPV solutions are power-packed, future-proof & aesthetically appealing.
