In celebration of UN World Environment Day, today we can show off one of our most challenging and rewarding installations to date. In collaboration with the amazing staff at Australia Zoo, we designed and installed this incredible 638kW system on the Crocoseum, right where the Wildlife Warrior Show is held daily! To compliment the Australia Zoo’s remarkable wildlife conservation, this system will produce clean solar energy that will power the Zoo for years to come as well and greatly contribute towards the global movement towards renewable energy. Following meticulous research and vetting of many Australian commercial solar companies, Australia Zoo chose the team at GEM Energy to undertake this momentous project.

ClearVue Solar Glass Greenhouse Officially Opened

Article | March 3, 2020

A high-tech greenhouse comprised mainly of solar glass generating electricity to help run it was officially opened yesterday in Western Australia. ClearVue Technologies Limited’s solar glass involves a nanoparticle interlayer and spectral-selective coating on the rear external surface that enables 70% of natural light to pass through while redirecting infrared and UV light converted to infrared to the edge where it is harvested by solar cells. ClearVue says each 1m2 of its window product is currently rated to generate 30 watts-peak of electric power, but also mentions a new-generation product with the proven ability to generate 40 watts peak per m2 to be available sometime this year.
