Building-integrated photovoltaics company ClearVue Technologies has been awarded a tender with the Hong Kong government for a 12-month measurement and verification study of the company’s glazing systems.
The study covers installation of five of ClearVue’s integrated glazing unit (IGU) panels at the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) offices in Kowloon.
The panels cover approximately 13.2 square metres in total and will be assessed for their “optical properties, energy harvesting and energy efficiency effectiveness” with solar energy, the company told the ASX.
“The selection of the ClearVue product by the EMSD for completing this study is testament to how the ClearVue product is now being seen globally – that is, as one of only a few commercially available glazing products that, in addition to offering power generation on site, genuinely offers a compelling energy efficiency solution for advanced building envelope design,” said ClearVue Executive Chairman Victor Rosenberg in a statement on Thursday.
Data for the study – which EMSD is paying $72,000 for and which began on March 1 – will be used to compare CleaeVue’s panels versus existing adjacently installed conventional glazing.
Verified data from the finished study will also be used to confirm the value of the ClearVue’s PV for use in future government building deployments in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China.
EMSD endorsement is mandatory for government engagement within Hong Kong.
ClearVue is headquartered in Perth.
