H.Glass is an expert in engineering and manufacturing a new generation of aesthetic, colored and transparent solar panels, based on dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) technology, developed by Mr. Michael Grätzel at the EPFL in Switzerland.
H.Glass is a company that brings together an international team of approx. 50 employees working in the production facilities in Villaz-St-Pierre and the Research and Development center in EPFL Innovation Park.
H.Glass was established in 2011 with the vision to advance the Eco-Habitat and sustainable building. H.Glass has developed a unique manufacturing process of glass encapsulation of the dye-sensitized solar cells used in the glass device. Our technology has come to life in large pilot projects and has been recognized by several awards. In 2014, H.Glass received the prestigious Watt d’Or award in the category “Renewable Energies” by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy.
Based on these experiences, acquired know-how and passionate work of researchers and engineers, H.Glass is currently developing a new production technology. This innovative production line will offers many economical and ecological advantages: high production speed, low costs, low energy consumption production process. This will leads to a radically more affordable technology and a very short energy payback time.
Technology and products specifications will be announced during second half of 2019.
