ClearVue solar glass tapped for bus shelters, outdoor advertising

Post Time:Sep 13,2018Classify:Industry NewsView:1105

Perth-based building-integrated solar PV company, ClearVue Technologies, has signed a deal that will see its clear solar glass used to power “street furniture” such as bus shelters and outdoor advertising signs.

The ASX-listed company said it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Global Smart Cities, trading as yStop, to integrate ClearVue technologies into advanced outdoor applications.

ClearVue’s patented nano-technology, developed in conjunction with the Electron Science Research Institute (ESRI) at Edith Cowan University, generates electricity from a flat, clear sheet of glass while maintaining transparency.

The company claims the windows can generate a minimum of 30W per square metre, while also providing insulation from heat and cold, and UV control. With further R&D, they expect generation to reach 50W per square metre.

But it is the technology’s “clear glass” quality that executive chairman, Victor Rosenberg, has described as a game-changer in the building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) sector.

“The MOU between ClearVue and yStop represents our first collaboration opportunity where we will be able to demonstrate the versatility of the ClearVue technology and products,” Rosenberg said in comments on Tuesday.

“By integrating our solar glass with yStop’s illuminated street signs and advanced bus shelters, we will be able to demonstrate how ClearVue’s technologies can be deployed in situations where grid connectivity isn’t possible or is difficult, yet clear, well‐lit glass remains a requirement,” he said.“Modern bus shelters require power, lighting, illuminated advertising, electronic display advertising and information screens – the ClearVue solution is a great fit for this.
