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 Thermal Collectors - Pilkington

https://www.pilkington.com/en/global/knowledge-base/types-of-glass/solar-energy/solar-technologies/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.

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 converts it into electricity.

What is Self-cleaning Glass? - Pilkington

https://www.pilkington.com/en/global/knowledge-base/types-of-glass/self-cleaning-glass/what-is-self-cleaning-glass

Solar Energy. What is Self-cleaning Glass? Self-cleaning glass is exactly as the name suggests - glass that keeps itself clean. It uses a photocatalytic process whereby organic dirt is broken down by daylight and is then washed away by rain. Long described as an impossible dream, self-cleaning glass is now a reality.
