G24 Innovations collaborates with Skyco Shading Systems

G24 Innovations (G24i), in collaboration with Skyco Shading Systems Inc of Santa Ana, CA, have been awarded a contract with a global hotel chain to take part in a major renovation of their flagship hotel which commences this month, and which will include the installation of energy efficient shades in over 8,000 of its windows.
The automated shade system is wireless and will be "Powered by G24i's" Gen-3 indoor solar technology, which has been identified as the most powerful in the world for the conversion of indoor light into electricity. After months of testing, the engineering team found that G24i's DSSC Technology was the only solar technology able to provide enough electricity indoors to power the wireless shade system.
G24i's indoor power solution will substantially add to the hotel's green credentials, while saving $3 million on installation costs by eliminating the need for the tens of miles of hard wire, in addition to eliminating the impact to operation and lost revenue caused by the in-wiring process.
G24i Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Richard Costello, stated, "The project represents a dawn of a new era for the solar industry with the creation of indoor applications that do not require government subsidies, while also delivering substantial savings to the building owner".
Skyco President, Ms. Sandee Young, added, "Skyco is pleased to be the architectural shade system provider on this ground breaking installation. The use of G24i's innovative indoor power solutions will greatly increase the use of energy efficient shade systems globally by substantially reducing installation costs."
G24i and Skyco have already provided additional quotes for projects for other hotel chains and are currently in discussions with corporate and institutional clients about the "Power by G24i" indoor solar solution.
The hotel will be the first in the world to deploy and utilize a large scale solar system indoors to power a major system autonomously using recycled light to produce electricity.
