At the AASHE conference in Baltimore last week (10- 9 thru 12) SolarThermiX was overwhelmed by the receptivity and quick grasp of the fossil reducing technologies we introduced at the show. Due to the quality of Sustainability and Facility managers in attendance, we learned much more than we educated. Most managers easily grasped the large contribution that thermal mass/fly wheeling could bring towards a dramatic (30%+) AND economical reduction (<4 year payback) in GHG on a per school basis.
Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing case studies detailing phase change material (PCM) energy savings from schools including University of Washington, Northern Arizona University, decade old results from Arizona State University and, hopefully, some quick updates from schools making commitments to run pilot programs, imminently. Though great as a standalone technology, PCM explodes with the addition of our award winning solar thermal heater. A match made in fossil reduction heaven. We greatly appreciated the chance to meet AASHE members and look forward to participating in the 2017 San Antonio, Texas conference.
