Onyx Solar will use The Big 5 2016 to showcase its photovoltaic (PV) glass for green building applications.
The product, which has the appearance of conventional glazing, allows natural light transmission. PV glass also filters ultra-violet (UV) and infrared radiation, and generates electricity from solar energy.
Onyx Solar described its PV glass as “the best glazing you could use nowadays”, citing its ability to pay for itself through energy generation and improvement of a building’s envelope.
The firm will also promote its finance packages at The Big 5. Customers will have the option to provide an up-front payment of 15% of their glass’s cost, and pay the remainder in monthly or bi-annual instalments over a period of eight to 12 years.
The Big 5 2016 will take place at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from 21-24 November.
