John Molson School of Business building at Concordia University

A combined solar electric and thermal system has been integrated into the daily operation of the new John Molson School of Business building at Concordia University in downtown Montréal, Canada.

Consisting of 25 kilowatt-peak (kWp) photovoltaic modules that produce electricity and also up to 75 kWp of heat, the combined solar panels are part of a 288 m2 SolarWall® system that covers the top 2 south-facing floors of the building. This technology is expected to produce enough electricity and heat energy to significantly reduce the energy needs of this innovative building.

Developed in partnership between Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), the Solar Buildings Research Network, Day4 Energy, Conserval Engineering and Sustainable Energy Technologies, and funded by the Technology Early Action Measures Program, the project is truly a Canadian development.
