McDonalds has covered the entire structure of its new zero-emissions restaurant in the US with photovoltaic glass from Onyx Solar.
192 units of crystalline amorphous silicon glass of 291 W / unit with a gray finish, with a total installed power of 55.80 kWp.
Located in Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, Florida, the McDonalds chain has opened its new restaurant after 9 months of renovations and modernization, its first zero-emissions restaurant in the USA, thanks to the technology of the Spanish company Onyx Solar.
The main material of this project is the Onyx Solar photovoltaic glass, which they have used to cover the entire structure of the building, combining it with vertical gardens to absorb CO2.
Conventional photovoltaic solar panels have also been installed in the car parks, as well as a natural ventilation system: an automatic system of shutters that open and close depending on the humidity and the outside temperature, achieving considerable energy savings.
Inside the building, there is an area specially dedicated to the sustainable characteristics of the project, where users can see videos of the project carried out by Ross Barney Architects, technical details and how technology can help us fight against climate change.
Onyx Solar is a technology-based company founded in 2009 in Ávila that manufactures photovoltaic glass for buildings. During these years, it has received more than 75 international awards, which makes it the most awarded company in the photovoltaic sector in history. A few months ago, the European Commission itself awarded Onyx Solar the award as “European Champion of Innovation” in 2019.
