In addition to the features of AGC’s photovoltaic glass, AGC Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. (Headquarters: Singapore), the contact point for this project, was highly evaluated for its one-stop service from basic design to material supply and construction, which led to the selection of AGC’s photovoltaic glass.
*1 Multi-energy microgrid
A system to stably supply electricity by installing small-scale power generation facilities near consumers and using decentralized power sources such as solar, storage batteries, EVs, etc., instead of purely relying on power supplied from the main grid.
*2 The area of AGC’s photovoltaic glass used in the campus is about 400m2, equivalent to 57.7Kwp rated output. Rated output is a value that indicates how much power a solar installation can generate under predetermined conditions (standard conditions).
About AGC’s photovoltaic glass
AGC’s photovoltaic glass is a type of BIPV (building-integrated photovoltaic) module, made from laminated glass, which can generate power while letting in sunlight. By encapsulating photovoltaic cells between two sheets of glass, energy can be created in canopies, skylights, and facade glass. It creates a sense of openness and offers solar control performance by taking advantage of the features of glass and allows for a high degree of design flexibility as the cells can be arranged freely. In recent years, there has been a growing demand for eco-friendliness in various buildings. Against this backdrop, AGC’s photovoltaic glass, which contributes to the realization of zero-emission buildings (ZEBs) and a carbon-neutral society, will provide new possibilities for glass.
* In Japan, photovoltaic glass is sold under the Sunjoule® brand since its launch in 2000. The AGC Group has been promoting the use of photovoltaic glass, which enables the use of renewable energy, for more than 20 years. In Japan, the product has been installed in over 250 sites.
