Asahi Glass Company and Solaria Announce Strategic Partnership to Deliver Advanced BIPV Solutions to the Asian Market

Asahi Glass Company and Solaria Corporation announced a strategic partnership to bring an AGC Sudare powered-by-Solaria, building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solution to the market. As part of AGC Solar’s commitment to ‘empowering solar efficiency’ the company is expanding its BIPV product line. AGC entered into a relationship with Solaria to develop a new product series to meet the growing demand for sustainable alternatives to traditional windows and facades.

U.S. General Services Administration Selects Solaria as Provider for Green Proving Ground Program, Reducing Risk, Accelerating Market Adoption

Solaria Corporation announced that it has been selected as a participant in the United States General Services Administration (GSA) Green Proving Ground (GPG) program. The GPG leverages GSA’s real estate portfolio to evaluate innovative sustainable building technologies. The GPG program selected Solaria after extensive testing of its building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solutions, funded by the Department of Energy (DOE), at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's (LBNL) new FLEXLAB. Solaria’s BIPV system underwent holistic testing, at the world’s most advanced building efficiency test bed, for energy generation, glass performance and tenant comfort, as well as proving a smooth and cost effective design-build process. As a result, the GSA is moving forward with a commercial pilot installation of the technology in 2016, to further to the readiness for commercial scale deployments across its portfolio. A Federal Building in Kansas City, Missouri, was chosen for the commercial pilot. While demonstrating its BIPV technology in an occupied building, the Solaria and the GSA, with LBNL, will collect energy generation, thermal performance, daylighting, glare and occupant comfort data in comparison with non-BIPV windows in the same building. In addition to the factors above, it includes evaluation of the design-build process and economics. On the heels of the successful testing at FLEXLAB, it is anticipated that the results will show that BIPV solutions offer the building and construction industries a reliable, seamless alternative to traditional glass solutions with a product that provides additional value in moving glazed facades towards the goal of positive net energy gains.
