Company Description

ISSOL develops and manufactures smart glazing, capturing renewable solar energy to produce «green» power. We are able to add architectural features to photovoltaic technology and replace traditional building materials with energy positive glazing.

So ISSOL’s products belong to the fast growing smart glasses category. Our laminated glass performs essential architectural functions: mechanical, sealing, insulation, sun protection or aesthetics. They are available in many sizes, forms and colors; such as traditional building materials but equipped with high efficiency solar cells. Our team brings together capabilities required for designing energy positive buildings together with architects and know-how from photovoltaic energy and glazing transformation. For new or renovated architectural, commercial or industrial buildings ISSOL develops solutions with its preferred partners, based on the specifications of architects and real estate developers. ISSOL solutions are designed to enable electric self-sufficiency of buildings with virtually zero CO2 emissions.

Assets connected to the Be-Smart Project

Issol has not only the role of industrial partner in the Be-Smart project, but also a solid experience to share as designer and producer of BIPV since more than 12 years now. Issol has already designed and produced numerous active building skins with different fixing techniques and types of glass. As engineer in the design office of Issol and R&D and process manager, Sebastien La Fontaine has also an expertise in the glass sector to share inside of this consortium. Issol will be the WP leader for the industrial part of the project and will participate to the conception of samples, production processes and glass for all demonstrators: mobile and full size ones.
