SOLAR PV SKYLIGHT - SCIENTECHNIC DUBAI
Onyx Solar has installed a Photovoltaic Skylight, located in the new building of the Scientechnic company in Dubai.
It is a 340 m2 skylight made up of Amorphous Silicon glass, with low transparency and very high-performance IGUs (anti-reflective, Low-E, solar control)
The Scientechnic company presented us with the challenge of installing a glass cube in Dubai, the main objective was, in addition to generating energy, to create a space in which the indoor thermal comfort was optimal, avoiding the greenhouse effect.
- Total Area - 340 M2
- Electricity generated in 35 years - 726.366 KWh
- Total lighting points operating 4 hours per day in 35 years - 1.427 lighting points
- CO2 emissions avoided in 35 years - 487 Tons of CO2
- Barrels of oil saved in 35 years - 436 barrels per m2
Example of a feasibility study of amorphous silicon photovoltaic skylight in Dubai:
- Payback time < 11.4 years
- Internal rate of return (IRR) 8.6 %

In order to achieve it, we have created a photovoltaic solar glass with excellent performance. It is a glass that, in addition to generating energy thanks to the sun, has a U value of 1 W / m2K and a G value of 0.1 that makes it adapt perfectly to the extreme temperatures of Dubai where they reach 53 ° C (127 ºF).
This is possible because this photovoltaic glass has a solar control layer that allows for visible light to pass through and filters infrared radiation, which is responsible for indoor heat buildup. Also, it is composed of an argon spacer that insulates the building from the high temperatures outside, creating perfect thermal well-being.
This photovoltaic solar glass provides excellent day-light quality to the interior because of its two anti-reflective, selective coatings.
This project, designed by FACE ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN, consists of a 340 m2 photovoltaic skylight made of 2,000x2,8000 mm glass and will generate 700 MWh of clean energy avoiding the consumption of 400 barrels of oil.
