| Cities are eating up an increasing amount of heat and electricity. In order to reduce this consumption, buildings have to become increasingly efficient and integrate more renewable energies.
| The crisis of the photovoltaic industry is drawing to a close. While it is true demand for solar modules is dropping in Europe, demand in many other regions is rising rapidly.
| Although the costs for solar power have come down considerably lately, photovoltaics are still unable to compete with conventional energy sources.
| Glass is a versatile material. Especially large area applications such as facade solutions impart their own visual effect and therefore require a targeted selection of the appropriate product.
| The use of transparent glass in conducting electricity using LEDs, short for light emitting diodes, is increasing. LED's are approaching the lifespan of standard building materials, making it cost effective to embed them directly in structural…
