BEACHWOOD, Ohio - Tremco Incorporated has been awarded a $1 million
Third Frontier Advanced Energy Program (TFAEP) grant from the state of Ohio in the Advanced
Tremco and its
project collaborators, in particular Xunlight of Toledo, Ohio, propose to
leverage Ohio’s outstanding building materials and photovoltaic (PV) research
and development capacity to commercialize a unique, durable, high-performance -
but removable - building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) roofing solution
targeting the grid-tied commercial marketplace, in which businesses are able to
sell excess electricity back to the utility. The project team will integrate
thin-film, flexible PV modules into Tremco’s innovative roofing systems.
Tremco expects to
develop new processes and technologies that will help the system advance the
cause of green construction and have a positive impact both on Ohio’s economy and on
energy costs for those using the BIPV system. For more information, visitwww.tremcoroofing.com.
