Germany: Façade Hot Water

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on December 21, 2012

The aim of German insulating glass manufacturer Energy Glas GmbH: To produce hot water by incorporating a solar thermal collector into the glass façade of commercial buildings. “We wanted to develop a new glass-glass collector which basically fits into all post-and-beam constructions in the façade,” Elmar Dohmann, one of the four Managing Directors of Energy Glas, says. The company’s R&D efforts succeeded: The team is proud to have realised its first two pilot projects with the new collector model. Since last year, metal absorbers in a triple-pane glazing have been installed in the façade of steel construction company Heinrich Lamparter Stahlbau GmbH & Co KG in Kassel (see photo) and in the façade of the sports centre in Etteln.
