Institutional Solar Air Heating Projects - Granby Hospital
A unique, aesthetically curved 82 m2 solar collector was integrated into the building to provide 4800 CFM to the cafeteria in this renovated hospital in Granby, Quebec, Canada. The undulant black perforated absorber finish was specifically chosen to provide a stark contrast to the building’s façade to highlight this energy saving building feature to the local community. Energy savings of 149.1 GJ and avoided CO2 emissions of 19.4 tonnes annually are expected.
