View the Press Release on ArcelorMittal’s website: English

Cologne, 22 March 2016 – ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest steelmaker, today announces SolarWall®, a solar air heating system, for the German market. This innovative technology is a highly effective solar air heating system that displaces up to 50% of a building’s space heating expense.

New regulation focused on the heating of buildings came into effect in Germany on 1 January 2016. Under this new legislation buildings are required to use 25% less energy and retrofit fresh-air ventilation systems. Technologies like the SolarWall® Air Heating system offer a unique solution in all new constructions to meet these regulatory requirements. The newly crafted energy standard is perfectly aligned with one of the main sources of GHG emissions in the building sector, which is space heating.

The European Union is committed to a 20% renewable energy target by 2020. Space heating represents up to half of a building’s energy demand but the lack of viable clean technologies that address the huge quantities of energy required for space or process heating continues to be a challenge to attaining the 2020 targets.

SolarWall® – as a building integrated system – utilizes solar radiation to deliver naturally warmed fresh air into buildings, providing a renewable heat source. Installed as an additional skin to a building to create an air cavity, the SolarWall technology consists of a precoated steel collector with thousands of carefully engineered perforations spread across its surface to collect the heated air. As sunlight strikes the surface of the steel skin, the energy is absorbed, heating the surface and creating a thermal boundary layer. In turn, this layer of heated air which lines the face of the collector is drawn through the perforations and into the building’s ventilation system.

The SolarWall® systems are unique in that they are all-steel, building integrated & site-built using local labour. In addition, they require virtually no maintenance over their 30+ year lifespan.

ArcelorMittal Construction’s CEO, Jean Christoph Kennel, states: “With increased pressure on private and public buildings to become more proficient environmentally, there is a trend towards highly efficient, holistic heating solutions which can be combined with established renewable technologies driving towards energy efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions. The SolarWall technology provides a new solution for the commercial and industrial and tertiary sector to costeffectively reduce both their operating costs and their CO2 emissions”.

The SolarWall® air heating technology recently attained the Solar KEYMARK Certification, meaning that the solar energy produced from the system – and corresponding GHG emissions offset – will contribute to the on-site renewable energy targets. It also allows technologies to become eligible for subsidies such as BAFA.

ArcelorMittal and Conserval Engineering, the world leader in Solar Air Heating, have formed a joint venture to produce and market the SolarWall® systems in Europe. They are manufactured by ArcelorMittal Construction in France at Haironville, for SolarWall® Europe sarl. The SolarWall® technology is available via the ArcelorMittal Construction sales network in Germany.

SolarWall® Air Heating Technologies Certified by Solar KEYMARK

Dec 17, 2015 – Two solar KEYMARK certificates have been issued for the SolarWall® air heating technologies. This is a significant event in the world of renewable energy because the Solar KEYMARK certification has been instrumental in helping to drive the uptake in solar thermal technologies across the European Union. Up to now, mainly water heating systems have been certified under the EU’s Solar KEYMARK program, despite the fact that space heating and process heating can represent up to +50% of a building’s energy demand. This means that for the European Union’s 20% Renewable Energy targets to be successful, technologies that displace space heating are an essential requirement.

The Solar KEYMARK is the main quality label for solar thermal technologies in the EU. It demonstrates to end-users that a product conforms to the relevant European standards and that the solar energy produced from the system will contribute to the on-site renewable energy targets. It also allows technologies to become eligible for subsidies.

The SolarWall® system is a building integrated solar air heating system that utilizes solar radiation to deliver naturally warmed fresh air into buildings, providing a renewable heat source. Installed as an additional skin to a building to create an air cavity, the SolarWall technology consists of a pre-coated steel collector with thousands of carefully engineered perforations spread across its surface to collect the heated air. As sunlight strikes the surface of the steel skin, the energy is absorbed, heating the surface and creating a thermal boundary layer. In turn, this layer of heated air which lines the face of the collector is drawn through the perforations and into the building’s ventilation system.

The new European Norm EN13779, which stipulates mandatory fresh air ventilation requirements for buildings with tighter building envelopes, also fits well with the SolarWall technology’s ability to heat large volumes of fresh air.

The SolarWall technologies displaces up to 50% of a building’s space heating expense. It established the global standard for solar air heating and is in use around the world on thousands of commercial, industrial and agricultural buildings. The SolarWall® systems are unique in that they are all-steel, building-integrated & site-built using local labour. In addition, they require virtually no maintenance over their 30+ year lifespan.

Solar Cooling Patent Granted to SolarWall® Inventor

The U.S. Patent Office has granted SolarWall® inventor, John Hollick, patent #8,827,779 titled «Method and Apparatus for Cooling Ventilation Air for a Building». The invention uses a transpired solar collector to take advantage of a well-known phenomenon called nocturnal radiation cooling which can cool air below ambient from sunset to sunrise.

«Cooling air below ambient using nocturnal energy has long been known but no one has been able to come up with a simple and economical way to harness this free cold energy, until now. We call the system «NightSolar®» and it connects to HVAC economizers. At the same time, it shades and ventilates roofs preventing the sun’s rays from reaching the roof, which can account for half of a building’s cooling demand» states Hollick.

The system works day and night in the summer with the daytime solar heat collected the same way as a conventional SolarWall® system, while also simultaneously shading and ventilating the roof. The heat can either be dissipated or used to heat water or industrial processes. At night these same panels will cool air as much as 10 degrees F below ambient when connected to the economizers on typical HVAC units. In the winter, the solar energy heats the air entering the same HVAC units.

Earlier this year Hollick and his SolarWall heating invention were honored by American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) in New York City in a new exhibit as one of 80 of the best inventions, inventors and engineering feats of the past two centuries along with Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Willis Carrier, George Westinghouse and the Panama Canal. Entitled «Engineering the Everyday and the Extraordinary», the goal of the exhibit is to «invite people to rediscover the remarkable; the engineers and inventions that have shaped our world as well as the extraordinary breakthroughs that are already setting the stage for the future.»

The SolarWall transpired collector was a breakthrough invention that created the global solar air heating industry. It was ranked by the U.S. Department of Energy as being in the «top two percent of energy related inventions.» It continues to be the most efficient building integrated clean energy technology – now used in thousands of commercial, industrial and agricultural applications around the world – that effectively addresses the huge amount of energy used for space and process heating.

Building-Integrated Solar Air Heating Systems Hit Milestone

WASHINGTON, DC – According to data released today by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), a growing sector of the industry has reached a major milestone, with 5 million square feet of building-integrated solar air heating collectors now installed in North America.
SEIA President and CEO Rhone Resch says these systems represent 250 megawatts (MW) of thermal energy and displace nearly 100,000 tons of CO2 each year from the atmosphere.

“Building-integrated solar air heating systems are often overlooked in the discussion about renewable energy,” Resch said. “We need to change that mindset. These cost-effective, energy-efficient systems can reduce by 20 to 50 percent the amount of conventional energy used for heating buildings – or for agricultural or process drying applications. That can represent a huge savings to companies, business owners and farmers nationwide.”

Solar air heating systems work by heating incoming ventilation air before it is brought into a building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system (HVAC), using wall-mounted collectors that are typically made of metal and have 30-plus year lifespans.

“By our estimates, we can create more than 50,000 new American jobs and save $60 billion in energy costs over the next 30 years by expanding the use of innovative solar heating and cooling systems (SHC) across the United States,” Resch continued. “Today, approximately 44 percent of all American energy consumption is attributable to heating and cooling. As a nation, it’s time to re-think our strategy for generating energy for our homes, businesses, schools and government buildings.”

According to BEAM Engineering, a Boston-based energy consulting firm, SHC is the most efficient renewable technology for generating thermal heat and costs are as low as 6 cents per kilowatt (kWh) hour. Last year, SEIA’s Solar Heating and Cooling Alliance released a comprehensive report, detailing how SHC technologies can help to power the U.S. economy, while significantly reducing pollution.

ASHRAE Technology Award Recognizes Innovation at New NREL Building

January 16, 2013 – The new NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) Research Facility in Golden, Colorado has been named the recipient of a 2013 Technology Award from ASHRAE. These prestigious awards recognize outstanding achievements in the area of building design and technology integration that serve as a model to other ASHRAE members. The new NREL complex is the preeminent national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy and it was singled-out for recognition because of its success with building-integrated energy systems, including a flagship 8,600 ft2 SolarWall® air heating and ventilation system that spans the south façade.

Incorporating the SolarWall® technology into the new building was a natural fit because NREL had been involved with the development of the SolarWall® transpired collector technology, and had officially referred to it as being “the most reliable, best performing, and lowest cost solar heating system for commercial and industrial buildings.” The charcoal-colored SolarWall system was seamlessly integrated into two different south facades – around dozens of windows – where it will pre-heat the fresh ventilation air using the sun, reducing heating costs and GHG emissions.

NREL’s ASHRAE Technology Award is indicative of the emphasis that is now being placed on integrated energy solutions that enhance the overall operation of the building. Technologies like the SolarWall air heating and ventilation system are a valuable addition to any new building because they provide meaningful energy savings while augmenting the conventional mechanical system and addressing the fresh-air requirement.

The NREL facility will be the largest Net Zero building in the US with 800+ staff and aiming for LEED® Platinum Plus rating from the USGBC. It was designed to use 50% less energy than a standard office building, with an absolute energy use intensity (EUI) goal of 35 kBtu/ft2. There were a variety of integrated energy systems designed into the facility – from day lighting & occupancy controls, to radiant heating slabs and the SolarWall ventilation system – that all work synergistically together to achieve these impressive energy targets and help move these types of buildings into the mainstream.
