Our technology

A colored dye absorbs light and generates energy, imitating photosynthesis process in plants. This material-based energy producing technology is truly transparent – it absorbs the sunlight it needs, even uses indirect light, and lets the rest go through. That is the beauty you see when looking through a H.Glass panel. Our technology is unique. Today, we are developing the only colored and transparent photovoltaic technology.

In 2019, H.Glass is focusing on the deployment of a new production line that will offer economical and ecological benefits: high production speed, low costs and low energy consumption production process. This leads to a radically more affordable technology and a very short energy payback time.
