International team including Calgary inventors, entrepreneurs, investors… wants to demonstrate how to standardize microgrids so that they can all talk to each other and interact. That's an absolutely critical step if microgrids are going to be as important and valuable as we think they can be. We suggest that Calgary could show that microgrids can be implemented cost effectively to provide resilience and... more »
Our research at http://www.YSolar.org has noted a remarkable modification, which should be applied everywhere and will improve the efficiency of solar energy systems 10-1000x over traditional.
Our patent-pending technology, if applied in Calgary, with 300+ days of sun a year, could yield from public buildings and spaces sufficient green energy to lead the globe in a revolution of science for health.
The project has experienced a rollercoaster ride of attention since the award of the feasibility grant in 2019 and was well-positioned to get the green light using stimulus funds allocated in the fall of 2020. This was thanks to its shovel-ready status and innovative approach to seed projects... more »
In response to the Mayor's Innovation Challenge we propose a new, lightweight solar thermal roof over the existing Platform Innovation Centre. There are very few roof-top applications of this technology anywhere else in the world and we have a novel idea that will help establish Calgary as a world leader in energy transformation and innovation.
