Works at smart building materials company ClearVue Technologies (ASX:CPV) demonstrator trial site at the Warwick Grove Shopping Centre in Western Australia have now been completed and the site is now fully operational.
The trial demonstrator project upgraded the Northern entrance door to the shopping centre by replacing an older existing glass atrium of very similar design with a new ClearVue solar PV glass atrium.
The atrium entry glass includes 18 of ClearVue PV’s triple-glazed, low-e, power-generating IGU panels (comprising 8 glass IGU panels on the roof, 8 panels on the North front face and 2 obscured and partially shaded panels on the East face).
ClearVue PV glass charges a battery for energy storage and is providing power for lighting in the atrium and outside signage, amongst other things.
Live data on power being generated at the site is publicly displayed on a screen inside the Warwick Grove Shopping Centre entrance, and can also be seen at ClearVue’s website (see: http://www.clearvuepv.com/productssolutions/technology-trials/).
The data displayed is obtained from the trial’s PV solar inverter and battery and presented in the dashboard software developed by ClearVue partner, IoTStream.
The connected IoTStream dashboard provides information on the performance of the glass atrium in terms of its power generation, energy savings made and potential carbon offsets.
ClearVue has developed advanced glass technology that aims to preserve glass transparency to maintain building aesthetics whilst generating electricity.
