Glass is a durable, highly transparent material making it an obvious choice for solar energy applications. Our extra clear solar glass offers superior solar energy transmittance and is stable under solar radiation. It also survives harsh environmental conditions and protects the sensitive components of solar modules from water ...
Solar energy panels offer alternative solutions for a range of energy requirements , from small scale domestic applications to large scale solar power stations, from cloudy northern rooftops to hot sunny deserts. Glass is an integral and important element of these solar panels. Our wide range of high quality products are used ...
Characteristics of concentrated solar power technology. Concentrated solar power technology uses solar mirrors to concentrate sunlight. The concentrated sunlight can either be directed onto a heat transfer material which generates electricity through a turbine, or onto a very high performance photovoltaic cell, which ...
Sun Shines On Solar Energy Applications for Pilkington. 24 September 2010. Pilkington has announced the reopening of its UK5 float line at Greengate, St. Helens at the end of 2010. The plant will manufacture glass for solar energy applications, creating around 130 jobs in the local area. The glass manufactured at UK5 is ...

Extra clear low-iron float glass with very high solar transmittance for improved solar energy conversion, consistent performance and durability.
Characteristics of solar thermal collectors. Solar water heating systems are generally composed of solar thermal collectors, a water storage tank or interconnecting pipes and a fluid system to move the heat from the collector to the tank. The sun's energy is used to heat water flowing through the interconnecting pipes.
Photovoltaics, an environmentally friendly energy supply. Solar energy is the main source of energy on earth. Solar panels can harness this renewable energy directly and generate electricity or heat. Solar panels are environmentally friendly and reliable. Glass is an integral part of most solar technologies, playing a ...
Solar control glass can be an attractive feature of a building whilst at the same time minimising, or even eliminating the need for an air conditioning system, reducing running costs of the building and saving energy. In hot climates, solar control glass can be used to minimise solar heat gain and help control glare.
