Solar Energy - Pilkington

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/products/product-categories/solar-energy

Solar Glass and Solar Technologies. Solar energy panels offer alternative solutions to a range of energy requirements, from small scale domestic applications to large scale solar power stations, from cloudy northern rooftops to hot sunny deserts.

Solar Control Glass

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/architects/information-hub/types-of-glass/solar-control-glass

Solar control glass is a hi-tech product developed by the glass industry to allow sunlight to pass through a window or façade while radiating and reflecting away a large degree of the sun’s heat. The indoor space stays bright and much cooler than would be the case if normal glass were used.

NSG TEC™ Solar Applications - Pilkington

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/products/product-categories/solar-energy/nsg-tec

Low-iron NSG TEC™ Sodium Block is used as substrate for solar mirrors in concentrated solar power applications. The sodium barrier layer offers improved product shelf-life and durability and can offer solar mirror manufacturers improved stability.

Pilkington Suncool™ One

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/products/product-categories/solar-control/pilkington-suncool-range/pilkington-suncool-one

With a thermal insulation U-value of only 1.0 W/m 2 K, Pilkington Suncool™ One 60/40 helps to retain heat during the cooler months, so a comfortable indoor temperature is maintained all year round. Neutral in appearance, the low internal reflection also helps to give a clearer external view.

Pilkington Sunplus™ BIPV

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/products/product-categories/solar-energy/pilkington-sunplus-bipv

BIPV stands for Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) and refers to a building component which has been enhanced to perform as a renewable energy generating material in addition to being an integrated part of the architecture and building façade. Examples include windows, sunshades, spandrel glass and skylights.

Window Energy Ratings

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/architects/information-hub/types-of-glass/energy-efficient-glass/window-energy-ratings

The Window Energy Rating (WER) tells you how energy-efficient your windows are. The rating system is based on a scale of E to A++, with A++ windows being the most energy-efficient. The scheme is similar to those seen on household appliances, white goods and light bulbs. Benefits of installing energy rated windows:

How It Works - pilkington.com

https://www.pilkington.com/en-gb/uk/architects/information-hub/types-of-glass/solar-control-glass/how-it-works

How It Works. Glass manages solar heat radiation by three mechanisms: reflectance, transmittance and absorptance. These are defined as follows: Reflectance – the proportion of solar radiation reflected back into the atmosphere. Direct transmittance – the proportion of solar radiation transmitted directly through the glass.
