The installation has been made in the new 3D Research and Development Center that has become one of the largest and most advanced in the digital printing and manufacturing
industry on the planet.
The new center, with about 50,000 square meters, will be focused on the development of the printing portfolio, engineering and co-development and R&D of 3D products.
Designed with the direct collaboration of engineers and the R & D division of HP, together with clients and partners, the new installation integrates flexible, interactive, and sustainable
This center reflects HP’s commitment to the environment by incorporating a photovoltaic canopy with Onyx Solar PV glass.
The glass is made of crystalline silicon, measures 2890x730 mm and 2946x730 mm, with a cell density of 73%.
The total area of the installation is around 1000 m2 with a total power capacity of 138 kWp.The present invention provides on-site electricity generation and provides the building with a
shadow surface for all its workers.
HP’s intention is to continue working with Onyx Solar in future installations to use 100% renewable energy in its global operations over time.
