"The SolarWall system showcases our government's commitment to address climate change issues... Governments are in it for the long term. It's a good invesment for government funded agencies. A lot of agencies' mechanical systems are beyond their life expectancies and this is a good opportunity to easily tie in renewable energy savings with modernization of equipment.  This [SolarWall] project shows that we are trying to be leaders in the renewable nery field."

-Robert Bisson, former mechanical engineer with Manitoba Housing Authority

SolarWall® Solar Air Heating Systems for Government Buildings

Governments of all levels are the owners of buildings, and this affords them the opportunity to reduce energy costs within their jurisdiction and "lead by example" in terms of displacing CO2 emissions.  Given that almost 50% of the world’s energy usage in the building sector is used for heating, any comprehensive energy and CO2 strategy must include incentives and specific policy directives aimed at the "renewable generation of heat".

For these reasons, the European Union has announced explicit "Green Heat" targets as part of their overall mandate to generate 20% of all energy from renewable sources by 2020.

Suitable applications for SolarWall® solar air heating systems include; schools, community centers, bus and vehicle maintenance garages, water and waste treatment plants, housing authorities, offices, and other municipal complexes.
