Solaria’s technology and business model create an opportunity for mutual success in the burgeoning distributed energy generation markets - green building & BIPV, greenhouse & agriculture, and commercial & residential photovoltaic applications. Partners across the value chain are ensuring that our production is scaling, adoption of our technology is accelerating, and that our collective benefits are reaching the widest possible population across the globe.
Asahi Glass Company (AGC), a world leader in glass production has partnered with Solaria to bring an AGC Sudare, powered-by-Solaria, BIPV solution to the market. It is commercially available across Japan and South East Asia for use in building facades and other structural elements. AGC engaged in a relationship with Solaria to develop a new product series to answer the demand for sustainable alternatives to traditional architectural glass materials.
Bagatelos Architectural Glass Systems Inc. (BAGS) manufactures and installs large curtain wall projects in the Western U.S.
BISEM Inc., a leader in powered building envelopes, is a state-of the-art Net Zero Energy manufacturing facility. Nick Bagatelos has assembled and integrated a comprehensive set of sustainable façade options, required to achieve a Net Zero Energy Building and currently serves on Solaria’s Advisory Council.
Nippon Sheet Glass Group, the owner of the Pilkington brand, and one of the world’s largest glass producers, and Solaria are collaborating to manufacture and produce BIPV solutions for the European market, with plans to expand to the Middle East and beyond. This new BIPV solution extends NSG’s product line into solar architectural glass by incorporating Solaria’s PowerView™ technologies as part of an OEM relationship. The two companies will collaborate further to offer additional products including active frit solutions, high power density spandrel glass and a bifacial solar solution. Establishing a supply chain signifies that BIPV is commercially ready for mainstream adoption.
Through a strategic collaboration, Solaria and Soliculture have combined their technologies to create PV solutions for greenhouse applications that allow growers to generate revenue on the existing footprint of their greenhouses without compromising agricultural productivity. Soliculture is a provider of Greenhouse Integrated Photovoltaics (GIPV) for commercial greenhouse growers. Its wavelength selective greenhouse panels simultaneously enhance light quality onto plants while generating power above them.
In 2015 SunEdison, one of the industry’s largest global renewable energy development companies, licensed Solaria’s state-of-the-art manufacturing technology to cost effectively mass produce its new line of ultra-high efficiency 400-watt solar modules. The combination of Solaria’s high-density power generation solutions with SunEdison’s market leadership accelerates the availability of economically compelling, highly efficient solar. Ultimately, transforming the way energy is generated, distributed, and owned around the world.
Providing our customers and clients complete, best of breed and global solutions requires a system approach. Solaria is privileged to be partnering with multitude of technology, product and service companies around the world.
Solaria has contributed its BIPV skylight technology to Sacramento State’s Team SolarNEST, which has developed the Reflect Home as an entry in the 2015 Solar Decathalon. The Reflect Home will provide a roadmap to meeting California’s net-zero requirements mandated by 2020 without sacrificing performance or affordability.
