On today’s episode, Colin Touhey, CEO of Pvilion visits with The Global Energy Leaders Podcast to discuss what’s beyond solar and how we should be focusing on thinking outside of the box when it comes to implementing solar into our everyday lives.
Clemson University’s Sullivan Center has launched a Mobile Health Clinic that allows the clinic to reach underserved communities. When parked, the clinic draws 100% of its power from a solar battery system. #solarmedicalcenter #solarmedicine @clemsonuniversity
San Fran based non-profit Rainforest Connection has developed a high tech system using machine learning + solar energy to detect illegal logging in the Brazilian Rainforest @rainforestcx #greengoals💚 #sustainability
We recently finished installing our off-grid solar canopies at Skyland Park in Brookhaven, GA and are looking forward to seeing the completed park this Spring #sustainabledesign #solarfabricdesigns #tensilearchitecture #greenbuilding #atlanta
Eli Roxby and Colin Touhey building the control system and electronic hardware for Pvilion’s HEXT project: a remote controlled, self-erecting, lightweight shelter for 10 soldiers for the US Army
We are excited to announce our second successful collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger for their new solar tote which charges your mobile devices on the go! #sustainabledesign #wearabletech
Pvilion was honored to host the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam from Maria Regina High School in Hartsdale, NY #wearabletechnology @lemelsonmit @mariareginahs
Researchers from the German Aerospace Center have developed the world’s first solar fuel reactor called CONTISOL. This device is capable of producing hydrogen fuel, without the intensive greenhouse gases, by using air to store & transfer heat.
Cornell Architecture’s Aleks Mergold and his 4th and 5th year Design Studio students at Pvilion offices discussing mechanized structure and flexible PV tensile structure tech. Pvilion’s Todd Dalland and Colin Touhey are co-teaching the studio which meets alternately in NYC and Ithaca.
