Glass to Power Spa and Notredame Srl have signed an agreement for the development of a research project on the integration between electricity production technology from the conversion of solar radiation and the technology for controlling and managing heat and light flows.
The two-year agreement will allow the two companies to work in synergy on the following lines:
– Integration of knowledge, working methods and reasoning habits
– Research activity to increase the innovative aspect of photovoltaic glass windows and facades in the building sector and increase the competitiveness of the product
– Acceleration of the placing on the market of technology through new forms of use deriving from integrated collaboration.
Notredame Srl, former technological start-up of the incubator of the University of Calabria, was founded in 2009. The high-tech company operates in the application field of nanosciences and nanotechnologies with the aim of developing innovative research and promoting the use of high-tech products in the energy saving sector. The technology developed by Notredame allows the transformation of normal windows into electrochromic windows, thus enabling the control of the flow of light and heat that passes through the windows without the need to make changes to the buildings. This can help to significantly reduce the energy impact of buildings.
