The new headquarters of the Canary Islands Higher Education Institution, located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, possesses a forefront technology which will make it the first LEED Platinum building in the Canary archipelago.

Onyx Solar® has contributed to this project with a system consisting of amorphous silicon photovoltaic glass slats integrated vertically into the façade. This is a triple-laminated glass, nearly three metres long and half a metre wide, with a degree of semi-transparency of 20% (L vision), and combined with inactive glass modules to give the building a remarkable mosaic-like appearance. In addition to generating clean, free energy from the sun, these modules filter out the harmful radiation (UV & IR) and prevent the overheating of the interior, due to a Solar (g) Factor which is optimal for this type of warm climates
