Solar glass ─ powering up with the sun
There are countless benefits of using solar power, both for the environment and in business. OSG offers experience and expertise in a selection of versatile glass-based solar solutions that are easy to implement into a diverse range of solar power systems.
We specialize in double-axis curved glass mirrors, which maximize solar concentration and energy collection. These curved mirrors provide higher sunlight-to-electricity conversion than alternative technologies.
Solar energy harvesting systems
OSG focuses on two main sectors of solar power glass systems: CSP (concentrated solar power) and CPV (concentrated photovoltaic).
CSP (concentrated solar power)
This solution incorporates a number of glass mirrors installed in locations where large quantities are required. CSP curved mirrors enable the concentration of the sun’s radiation to a central location, where it is then used to operate an electricity-producing engine.
CPV (concentrated photovoltaics ─PV)
This system suits numerous applications with glass fixtures that produce electricity directly without the need for a large area of photovoltaic cells. Highly flexible and efficient, it can be installed in many different locations. It involves smaller-scale systems based on single and double-axis curved glass mirrors.
