AGC and Heliatek Sign Development Agreement for Integrating Glass and Solar Films
Heliatek GmbH, manufacturer of high-end solar films, signed a joint development agreement with AGC Glass Europe, focused on researching and developing the integration of glass and solar films, and targeting the delivery of integrated solutions for the glass building envelope, according to a Sept. 30 Heliatek release.
With solar films, glass façades can become visually appealing, highly efficient and cost-effective solar energy harvesters that reduce the carbon footprint, according to the release.
"This agreement fits in perfectly with our strategy of providing affordable and environment-friendly glass solutions to our customers, the building industry and the community at large," said Marc Van Den Neste, CTO of AGC Glass Europe, in the release. "I am confident that this solution will open up new prospects for creativity and energy efficiency to architects and designers."
