ChromoGenics has become famous for creating innovative window glass. Now, the company is taking a strategical step when solar glass products for the façade complement their current product portfolio. This is the start of a completely new façade concept.
A façade is built up of both window and wall surfaces. ChromoGenics and Kameleon Solar are now creating a concept that includes both types of surfaces. The new product for wall surfaces is called ConverLight Energy and is a colored glass with built-in solar cells which makes it possible for the façade to create more energy than it consumes. The glass can be delivered in a range of colors and patterns to create a unique design for every property. Architects will be given increased possibilities to design both beautiful and energy-efficient facades.
ConverLight Energy, in combination with ChromoGenics’ other window products, will give any property a world-leading insulation quality, dynamic solar protection and a cohesive design whilst also delivering surplus energy.
The expansion of the product portfolio is done in co-operation with Kameleon Solar, who are experts in this type of glass. ChromoGenics and Kameleon Solar are already producing a pilot project in Norway.
“By combining two unique technologies we have created a fantastic Green-Tech concept and can by that contribute with smart, beautiful facades but more so to a more sustainable society. This is completely in line with our vision. Again, ChromoGenics shows it innovative leadership and how we are accelerating this leadership”, says CEO of Chromogenics, Jerker Lundgren.
ChromoGenics offers dynamic glass with controllable heat- and light transmission and static glass with world leading performance. The company’s unique technology ConverLight® provides sustainable solar control for increased indoor comfort and energy efficiency. ConverLight also contributes to Green Building certifications. In 2016 the company started commercial sales to real estate projects in Scandinavia.
ChromoGenics is located in Uppsala, Sweden, and the technology is derived from the world leading research center at Ångström Laboratory at Uppsala University. The plant has been partly financed by a conditional loan from the Swedish Energy Agency. ChromoGenics share (CHRO) is listed on Nasdaq First North Stockholm with G&W Fondkommission as Certified Adviser.
Kameleon Solar’s mission is to grant complete freedom of design and aesthetics to architects, building owners, and façade builders.
