Canadian solar technology is being honoured as one of the best 80 inventions of the past two centuries in an exhibit in New York City.

John Hollick and his invention, SolarWall, was selected by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to be part of the “Engineering the Everyday and the Extraordinary.” The exhibit includes inventions as the Steam Engine, Incandescent Light Bulbs and the Panama Canal, and is on display for the next 15 years at the CSME headquarters.

The Solar Wall Technology is recognized as a building-integrated technology that efficiently converts sunlight into usable thermal energy. It is used in thousands of buildings around the world for space and process heating, and was ranked by the U.S. Department of Energy as being in the “top two per cent of energy related inventions.”

Hollick’s company, Conserval Engineering, is located in Toronto, and has offices in Buffalo, NY and Paris, France.
