Buildings consume more than 40% of the electricity produced across the globe. Deployment of standard solar technology on rooftops is limited by the large area requirement and the negative visual impact. BUILD SOLAR aims to convert traditional building construction materials into energy generators by embedding innovative photovoltaic technology into them. Our first patent pending product “Solar Squared” transforms the widely used Glass Blocks into a multifunctional product that provides electricity, daylighting and improved thermal insulation.
