RENEWABLE POWER TECHNOLOGIES
We offer an ever growing array of renewable power technologies which can generate power both in remote off-grid locations, or can be incorporated into a facility’s power supply for grid connected buildings.
BIOMASS WASTE POWER GENERATION
Biomass waste materials including wood chips and sawdust, farm waste and other energy rich biomass materials can be used our Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Generators to produce both electric power and heat for both domestic hot water and space heating.

HYDROGEN FUEL CELLS
HCI Energy’s unique Hydrogen Fuel Cell generates significant amounts of power in any environment. This is an ideal technology to displace diesel generators in Canada’s far north where grid connections are not available and diesel fuel is very difficult to deliver. As a byproduct, these fuel cells produce significant amounts of fresh potable water. Click here to learn more about HCI Fuel Cells.
RUN-oF-the-RIVER HYDROELECTRIC POWER
Oryron Run-Of-River hydroelectric turbines are designed to sit on river bottom where they harvest the energy from the river’s water flow. The unique scoop attached to the Oryon turbines accelerates the water velocity so that even very slow river flows can produce significant amounts of power. Unlike conventional hydroelectric project, the Oryon avoids the use of shore spanning, and costly dam structures which interfere with the environment especially with local fish.

SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC ROOFING
Canada Solar Shingle has developed a unique solar photovoltaic system which uses durable interlocking solid steel shingles which assemble into an attractive jet black permanent power generating roofing system. This technology is ideal for pitched roofs common in homes and barns. Click here for more information about Canada Solar Shingles.
SOLAR HOT WATER
Our Globe Solar Energy solar water heating systems incorporate vacuum tube technology to operate effectively in Canada’s cold northern climate. These units, which can be combined into large integrated systems, can be used to produce hot water for both domestic use in residential washrooms and kitchens, and for process heat with applications ranging from manufacturing, to vehicle washing and restaurants.

EcoWave Energy has invented a unique renewable power source designed to harvest the latent energy of ocean waves. Designed to be mounted on wharfs and other maritime structures EcoWave Energy micro-turbines are ideal for remote outposts including fishing communities, remote lighthouses, research stations and coast guard facilities.
