This year, 24 schools from around the world were awarded grants, totalling some $110,000.
The grants are used to design and construct projects, such as Carleton University’s evaluation of office-level energy consumption, using a sparse sensor network, in Ottawa, Ont.
Other grant recipients in Canada are:
• Ryerson University: Design and Prototyping of a Heat Transfer Enhanced Hybrid Air-Based Building Integrated Solar Photovoltaic/Thermal Collector for Net Zero Energy Building Applications
• University of Windsor: A Novel Membrane Absorption Heat Pump
