Conserval Systems Inc. (SolarWall®)

Conserval Systems, Inc.Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page. has been delivering custom engineered renewable energy solutions for the past 20 years in over 30 countries around the world. Conserval invented and commercialized solar air heating for the commercial and industrial sector with their technology that was subsequently branded as SolarWall

The SolarWall air heating system has one of the fastest energy return-on-investments for a solar technology. The system uses the sun’s energy to pre-heat ventilation air for commercial and industrial buildings or for crop drying applications such as tea, coffee and cocoa. It substantially reduces traditional heating fuel expenses and CO2 emissions in a building integrated system which requires no maintenance and lasts over 30-years.

The SolarWall technology can also be used in conjunction with photovoltaics to create a total energy system. Pairing the SolarWall technology with PV improves the operating efficiency of the PV and substantially reduces the payback period, thus making the combined system financially viable for typical commercial & industrial applications. The technology is also available in a modular rooftop system called SolarDuctTM or SolarDuct PV/TTM

Double A Willow

Driven by concerns about global warming, air pollution, rural development, and national security, Double A Vineyards, through its subsidiary Double A WillowLink opens in new window - close new window to return to this page., has taken the lead in the large scale commercialization of shrub willow and other commercial uses.

Chosen in 2004 by SUNY ESF, who provided 20 years of research into the development of shrub willow, as the only licensed commercial nursery to grow and distribute their patented high yielding and fast growing varieties, Double A Willow has developed a large, impressive nursery capable of providing willow cuttings to growers across North America. These cuttings will be used primarily to ultimately provide fuel supplies for wood and coal power plants and combined heat and power projects. It is hope as technology improves willow can be used as a source fuel for large scale biofuel projects.

In addition, Double A Willow is dedicating a larger portion of its business to the development of other uses of shrub willow. Some of these other uses include: snow and privacy fences, living walls, riparian buffers, phytoremediation projects, and ornamental uses such as basketry and dried willow arrangements.

Dennis and Sue Rak, the owners of Double A Willow, are well known in New York State and across the country for their crop and business management skills in the operation of a large, diverse and growing grapevine nursery business which they have operated for the past 20 years. In the 4 years they have operated the Double A Willow nursery business they already have gained a reputation as a customer oriented, efficient operation that should provide the skills and drive to make this new renewable energy business a great success.

Emergent Properties Inc.

Emergent PropertiesLink opens in new window - close new window to return to this page. was founded on the idea that every building and city in the world should be operated as efficiently as a beehive or an ant colony. With the proliferation of mobile software, communication networks can be decentralized, and the natural phenomenon of self-organization can emerge within facility O&M teams, dramatically reducing the miscommunication, equipment failures, and administrative costs associated with traditional facilities management.

To do this, we view the building operator as a critical component of the building system, and we developed our mobile app, LogCheck, to help them do their job better. Operators enjoy using LogCheck because we kept it simple and designed it around their daily workflow of operator rounds, meter readings, and preventative maintenance tasks. Management likes it because it makes communication and accountability more transparent. You can download and try LogCheck for free using any Apple mobile device.

Prism Solar Technologies, Inc.

Prism Solar Technologies, Inc. (PST)Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page. has developed a unique proprietary Holographic Planar Concentrator (“HPC”) film technology for use in photovoltaic (“PV”) module applications. The company manufactures a transparent holographic film that collects sunlight, selects the most useful portions of the spectrum, and focuses that light onto adjacent solar cells in a new type of proprietary PV module.

Prism Solar’s strategic advantage lies in the core, patented HPC technology. By incorporating holographic film into a photovoltaic module, 50% of solar cells – the most expensive component of a PV module -- are replaced with inexpensive holographic film, which lowers the module cost per watt dramatically. The result is an HPC module that produces 25% more energy (Whs) over a year’s time compared to a conventional module with an equivalent peak watt rating.
