Research and development efforts have been primarily focused on the following areas:

  1. An air-based solar HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning) system utilizing both thermal and electric BIPV  (Building Integrated PhotoVoltaics) components designed and tuned for North American climates.  This includes waste heat recovery in the form of multiple stage heat-exchangers utilizing solar thermal loops.

  2. An autonomously controlled system for de-icing Road Integrated PhotoVoltaics (RIPV) sidewalks and driveways through hydraulic heat exchange with solar thermal units.

  3. Off-grid solar powered EV (Electric Vehicle) charging stations for remote applications.

  4. Efficient and cost effective snow melting BIPV technology for rooftop solar.

  5. Next level residential PV penetration applications such as the development of solar railings.

These projects are in ongoing collaboration with professors and researchers at the University of British Columbia, as well as select industrial partners.
