The Canadian poultry industry has tapped into a low-cost, high-value solar air heating technology, which appears ideally suited to broiler house operations – SolarWall®.

The technology was invented in Canada by Conserval Engineering Inc., which developed the building integrated system with fast return-on-investment and energy displacement of up to 30 per cent.

The SolarWall system doubles as a weather-proof facade and also serves to re-capture building heat-loss. It was originally developed for large commercial and industrial giants looking for a low-cost way of reducing their building ventilation costs. The technology has been deployed to large public and private sector organisations in more than 30 countries on five continents such as Auchan, Jaguar, Wal-Mart, Bombardier, Boeing, Ford, NASA, US Army and many more including more than 500 broiler house applications.

With more than 20 years of history, SolarWall is considered the world leading solar air heating technology by virtue of its un-matched solar efficiency (of up to 80 per cent). The Canadian government heralds SolarWall as being the lowest cost, most efficient way of heating ventilation air for buildings. The US Department of Energy states that it has the highest known efficiency of any active solar technology and further states that is within the top two per cent of energy inventions in existence.
