Asahi Glass Co. and Solaria Corp. announced a strategic partnership to bring an AGC Sudare powered-by-Solaria, building integrated photovoltaic solution to the market. As part of AGC Solar’s commitment to ‘empowering solar efficiency’ the company is expanding its BIPV product line, according to company officials in a release.  

“Solaria is honored to be working with AGC to help realize our combined vision of creating ubiquitous solar solutions that turn current passive built environments into clean, sustainable, energy generating assets,” said Udi Paret, GM Building Solutions, Solaria Corp. “To bring to market a powered-by-Solaria product from AGC to its vast customer base as a bankable and warrantied solution enables Solaria to provide the Asian market with its BIPV technology to facilitate the transformation of facades from net energy losses to net gains.” 

AGC entered into a relationship with Solaria to develop a new product series to meet the growing demand for sustainable alternatives to traditional windows and facades. Over the last year, AGC conducted rigorous tests, completed a certification process and strategically ramped up its supply chain in preparation for the launch of its new Sudare powered-by-Solaria solution.  Combining attractive aesthetics with compelling economics, Sudare powered-by-Solaria is commercially available across Japan and South East Asia for use in building facades and other structural elements.
