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 glass is an integral and important element of these solar panels. Our range of solar glass products is designed and optimised to suit the requirements of various solar technologies with properties such as high solar energy transmittance, strength and durability, as well as ...

Solar Control - Pilkington

Solar Control - Barriers to the Sun. Intensive research over several decades has equipped the float process with ingenious ways of controlling solar energy for greater comfort and economy. Ingredients can readily be added to the melter to control the wavelength and percentage of radiation transmitted or absorbed by the finished product. Cobalt and nickel, ferrous and ferric iron, cerium and titanium are all used to control transmission of infrared or ultraviolet waves to differing degrees ...

Solar Thermal Collectors - Pilkington

The sun's energy is used to heat water flowing through the interconnecting pipes. The water can be heated for a wide variety of uses, including domestic, commercial and industrial applications. Flat-plate solar thermal collectors consist of an insulated box which contains a dark absorber plate under a glass cover that hermetically seals the system while maximizing the energy input.

NSG TEC™ for Solar Applications

Used in Thin Film Photovoltaics, NSG TEC™ is a range of coated glass designed and optimised for each of the main thin film photovoltaic technologies, including amorphous silicon (a-Si), tandem (a-Si/μ/Si), cadmium telluride (CdTe), copper indium (gallium) diselenide (CIS, CIGS) and dye-sensitised solar cells (DSSC).

Solar Control - Pilkington

Solar Energy Solar Control Reduces solar heat gain and offers high levels of natural light to provide comfortable and pleasant environments in which to live and work.

Glass for Solar Panels - Pilkington

It also survives harsh environmental conditions and protects the sensitive components of solar modules from water and humidity ingress. Available with added functionalities, such as transparent conductive coatings or anti-reflective coatings, our solar glass products not only offer durable transparent protection to solar panels, but also become a functional component of solar modules.

NSG’s Solar Glass Float Furnace in U.S. Starts Operation

The new 500,000 square foot glass production facility was built as part of the 38 billion yen investment plan announced in May 2018 to expand production capacity of TCO glass to support the growing solar market. The investment is part of a long-term supply agreement with U.S.-headquartered First Solar, Inc., which operates the Western Hemisphere’s largest photovoltaic (PV) solar ...
