Photovoltaics - Pilkington

Photovoltaics NSG Group manufacture glass for photovoltaic panels and solar collectors but do not manufacture the finished items for direct use in buildings. A comprehensive range of TCO (transparent conductive oxide) glass is used in the manufacture of thin plate panels used in the direct conversion of solar radiation to electricity.

How the Pilkington Innovation Incubator is shaping the future of glass

One example I would highlight is Pilkington Sunplus™ BIPV – which stands for Building Integrated Photovoltaics and refers to a building component that has been enhanced to perform as a renewable energy-generating material in addition to being an integrated part of the architecture. In other words, it creates power-generating windows.

Specifying solar control glazing to improve energy efficiency

It includes the proportion of solar radiation transmitted directly through the glass, and the proportion of solar radiation absorbed by the glass and re-radiated into the building. Generally, the lower the g value, the lower the solar gain through the glass.

A renewed focus on energy efficient buildings - Pilkington

Phil Brown, European regulatory marketing manager at Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, part of the NSG Group, explains why energy-efficiency initiatives are set to return to the property sector and what this means for the growth of the glass and glazing market.

The fading issue: why sunlight exposure damages ... - Pilkington

1. Reduce the ambient temperature, as fading tends to occur more rapidly at higher temperatures – so solar control glass, which helps prevent heat gain in rooms, may help 2. Avoid local overheating from lamps 3. Use laminated glass, with as thick an interlayer as possible 4. Reduce exposure to UV light and the blue end of the visible spectrum 5.

Solar Control - Pilkington

In hot climates, solar control glass can be used to minimise solar heat gain and help control glare. In temperate regions, it can be used to balance solar control with high levels of natural light.
