The installation is composed of Amorphous Silicon Photovoltaic Glass modules with low transparency degree, in order to allow generate more free and clean energy. Each glass module has a standardized measure to perfectly adapt to the structure of the Chapter House Canopy. These range from 1,496x2,268 mm to 1,597x3,007 mm.

It is installed over the courtyard between the Cathedral and the adjoining Chapter House building. In total, this 70 m2 Photovoltaic Skylight will improve the efficiency of the building by producing clean energy (the installation will produce 3,300 kWh every year) thus offsetting the electricity used to power the air conditioner, providing shade and shelter, and also filtering the harmful radiation of the sun (UV and IR rays).

This iconic cathedral is the oldest one in Australia.  Its life began in 1817 when Francis Greenway led the design of a magnificent cathedral to be known as the Metropolitan Church. This Gothic Revival cathedral was completed in 1868 and consecrated on St Andrews Day of that year.

 

With the integration of our innovative technology in a building with so much history, it is shown that tradition and modernity can merge in perfect harmony, always maintaining a high level of aesthetics.

The project has been executed in collaboration with Hume Building Products, Onyx Solar collaborator for Australia. Jointly, many others projects have been carried out throughout Australia, highlighting the photovoltaic balustrade of The General building in Melbourne, or the photovoltaic canopy system in the Old Coal Loader in North Sydney.
