April 23, 2013 – GCCCI CanSIA Building Integrated Solar Photovoltaic Conference – Toronto
The German Canadian Chamber of Industry and Commerce joined forces to present a high quality day long forum on Building Integrated Solar Photovoltaics at the newly refurbished historic Allstream Centre at Toronto’s Exhibition Place.
The event featured both leading Canadian and German experts on the application of building integrated photovoltaic technologies to generate power and create exciting aesthetics treatments to both vintage historic buildings and to cutting-edge innovative new building structures of all scales.
The event highlighted the rapid development of the technology in Northern Europe and East Asia compared with the far more modest pace of the technologies growth in North America. Examples of BIPV structures varying from the Canadian government building in Yellowknife, the Manitoba Hydro tower in Winnipeg and an upscale private home in the village of Eastman in Quebec’s Eastern Townships area.
