Canada: Collector Manufacturers Have High Expectations of New Government

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 28, 2015
Since October, a new government has been at the helm in Canada under Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trudeau's conservative predecessor, Stephen Harper, who had been in office for nine years, had encountered increasing criticism by the Canadian population because of his climate-damaging policies and his close ties to the oil and gas industry. According to the study Solar Heat Worldwide by Austrian research institute AEE INTEC, the newly installed collector area in Canada declined between 2011 and 2013 from 127,412 m² to 58,067 m². Accordingly high are now expectations of the new government regarding climate change and the environment. Canadian collector manufacturers are hoping for the return of solar thermal-friendly policies. solarthermalworld.org has talked with them about their wishes and expectations.
 

Canada: Aéronergie’s Acquisition of Enerconcept Leaves Company and Product Names Intact

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on December 3, 2014
Lubi WallAt the beginning of October, Canadian air collector manufacturer Enerconcept became part of Canadian engineering company Aéronergie. Aéronergie is a young company, founded three years ago with the aim of offering efficient heating solutions to manufacturers which “keep spending large amounts on energy in spite of unseen substantial savings,” according to a press release from 7 October. “With the acquisition of Enerconcept, Aéronergie extends its portfolio into solar in a big way,” the press release adds. Aéronergie and Enerconcept have been working together since 2012, the former as a complete solution provider and the latter as an installer. Both companies realised a number of projects together by offering comprehensive packages to industry owners and reducing their heating costs by 60 to 90 %. The photo shows one of these projects - a 230 m² Lubi wall with a cross-flow heat recovery unit at the industrial painting specialist Fuzion TK in the town of Drummondville in the Québec province.

Manufacturer Founds Air Collector Association SAHWIA

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on June 23, 2009

solar air collectors of Solarwall” Air collector companies exist very much in the shadows of the manufacturers of water collectors. Therefore a Solar Air Heating World Industry Association (SAHWIA) is necessary. But not all manufacturers are pleased with the procedure that lead to the association’s founding. Photo: Solarwall
