Exceed Solar to display high tech, solar powered living spaces to millions of shoppers

High tech housing using sustainable materials and solar PV

Exceed Solar's high tech solar powered living spaces will be featured at Southgate Centre and highlight new ways of building sustainable structures

The popularity of backyard garden suites continues to increase substantially, so our timing could not be more perfect.”

— Stanton Pawchuk, Cofounder, Exceed Solar

EDMONTON, AB, CANADA, July 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Exceed Solar is set to unveil its solar-powered living spaces at Southgate Centre in October 2018 as its guests will be treated to an inside look at what the future of living and grow spaces look like.

Exceed Solar, which specializes in backyard solar applications branded under the name “Sol Spaces”, has signed an agreement with Southgate Centre, one of Canada’s most successful shopping centres, to display the Company’s high tech garden suite on the northwest parking lot. The Company’s solar-powered greenhouse will be exhibited inside the shopping centre and will feature, among other things, a living wall.

“We are extremely pleased to be working with Southgate Centre to expose our product to millions of shoppers within our target demographic,” said Stanton Pawchuk, cofounder of Exceed Solar. “The popularity of backyard garden suites continues to increase substantially, so our timing could not be more perfect.”

Southgate Centre is among the top 5 shopping malls in Canada for sales per square foot, and is located in an affluent area of Edmonton with a strong appeal to professionals and young families. Annually the shopping centre draws approximately 8.9 million visitors.

These demographics line up perfectly with Exceed Solar’s target market, particularly with the popularity of backyard applications such as garden suites and solar greenhouses. Municipal bylaws and regulations are now aligned with this growing market making it even easier for people to implement.

“Even as a rental suite, the backyard garden suite provides a significant return on investment,” explained Pawchuk. “However the flexibility for these living spaces is impressive, and can range from extra office space to artists studios and guest suites.”

Inside the shopping centre under a themed dome area will be the solar powered greenhouse, which is becoming increasingly appealing as food costs rise and consumers express more and more concern about genetically modified foods. The solar greenhouse has its own power source using 1 kWh of solar energy.

While the market for smaller homes, often termed tiny homes, is growing, Exceed Solar is taking a different approach to both renewable energy and living spaces. Each Sol Space is energy audited to maximize efficiency and to reduce the cost of solar power. In order to achieve scalability, the Company has used structural insulated panels as opposed to stick frame construction. This enables Exceed Solar to scale its solution to larger applications such as residential homes and recreational properties.

Exceed Solar is currently constructing the prototypes for the Southgate project and will be launching them on October 1, 2018 at the shopping center with an official ribbon cutting.

ABOUT EXCEED SOLAR

Exceed Solar leverages cutting edge building technologies to create fully sustainable, energy efficient, highly engineered living spaces. These “Sol Spaces” have been designed both to reduce the carbon footprint of the structures and to utilize available renewable energy from the sun via PV solar panels. Sol Spaces are easily installed and highly scalable, from backyard garden suites to solar powered greenhouses to fully sustainable recreational and residential homes. Our company objective is to exceed your expectations of what’s possible.

Hiring a local personal-injury attorney to handle a complex mesothelioma compensation claim could result in a navy veteran with mesothelioma getting dramatically shortchanged-overcharged or both”

— Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center is now urging a US Navy Veteran who has been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma in Mississippi, or their family to call them anytime at 800-714-0303 so they do not make the huge mistake of hiring an inexperienced lawyer/law firm. If a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma wants the very best mesothelioma financial compensation they will need direct access to some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who exclusively handle mesothelioma compensation claims for Navy Veterans on a full-time basis. http://Mississippi.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "When people hear the words US Navy Veterans they may not necessarily think of Mississippi, but we are certain there are thousands of Navy Veterans throughout Mississippi and a significant percentage were exposed to asbestos. When it comes to mesothelioma compensation for a US Navy Veteran, it is incredibly vital the lawyer they hire has years of experience with Navy Veteran mesothelioma compensation claims.

"Hiring a local personal-injury attorney to handle a complex mesothelioma compensation claim could result in a navy veteran with mesothelioma getting dramatically shortchanged-overcharged or both as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. We are potentially talking about the Veteran losing out on hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in lost compensation." http://Mississippi.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center has experience helping US Navy Veterans who were exposed to asbestos on the following types of US Navy ships:

* Destroyers
* Frigates
* Air Craft Carriers
* Cruisers
* Fast Attack Submarines (Los Angeles Class)
* Nuclear Submarines
* Amphibious Assault Ships
* Oilers and Cargo Ships
* Navy Tugs/Support Vessels

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Mississippi the Mississippi Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital:University of Mississippi Medical Center Jackson, Mississippi: https://www.umc.edu/cancerinstitute/ or the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic Houston, Texas. Note the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic might be one the best places in the world to be treated for mesothelioma.

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Mississippi include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, factory workers mill workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. Asbestos was widely used in oil refineries, in the oil production industry or in building construction in Mississippi during these time frames as the group would like to explain anytime at 800-724-0303. http://Mississippi.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However, mesothelioma does happen in Mississippi.

Smarter Business

In the last 12 months, Smarter Business has seen several successes, from awards to accreditations. Read more about the Smarter Business success story.

We continue to drive the business forward in line with our stated objective of expanding into other areas of business.”

— Bradley Wingrave

HAYWARDS HEATH, WEST SUSSEX, UNITED KINGDOM, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s been a year since Smarter Business Limited acquired Business Advisory Service Limited (BAS Energy) on 4th July 2017. In the last 12 months, Smarter Business has seen several successes, from awards to accreditations.

The acquisition of BAS Energy last year positioned the Smarter Business group as one of the biggest energy brokers in the UK, with over 250 staff and a resulting customer base of over 40,000 clients, placing contracts with a customer spend of over £20 million per month.

Smarter Business shortlisted for five TELCAs

Smarter Business was shortlisted in five categories at The Energy Live Consultancy Awards (TELCA) 2018.

Now in their sixth successive year, the TELCAs honour the best consultant and broker companies in the UK. The awards are recognised within the industry as being one of the most coveted in the UK and are specific to Third Party Intermediaries (TPIs) in the energy industry.

Smarter Business was thrilled to be on the shortlist for all of the five categories the company entered:

● Awesome Place to Work
● Consultancy of the Year
● Best Advice
● Best Customer Service
● Industry Expert

The first company to be awarded TGP’s Platinum Accreditation for Compliance

Smarter Business was the first broker to be awarded Total Gas & Power’s (TGP’s) Platinum Accredited Quality Compliance Badge in recognition for meeting TGP’s compliance target for energy sales for a year.

Through their broker monitoring program, TGP identifies any failings and take strong action, and also recognise brokers that are achieving high levels of performance against their high quality and compliance standards. The targets are set at a demanding level, which means that a broker needs to show a real ongoing commitment to compliance excellence to meet them. Over the last year, Smarter Business’ sales have been regularly and rigorously reviewed by TGP and their compliance team, resulting in the awarding of Platinum Compliance status.

It’s been an exciting and rewarding 12 months for Smarter Business, and staff at the UK energy broker are looking forward to even better things to come.

Annual ‘Biofuels in Canada’ report released with expanded coverage of Canadian biofuel use, GHG reductions, and costs

Biofuel blend % 2010 – 2016

Avoided lifecycle GHG reductions 2010- 2016

Advanced Biofuels Canada commissions third report, now addresses tax impacts.

Comprehensive data about our industry has become even more important given biofuels’ key role in meeting expanding federal and provincial renewable and low carbon fuel policies.”

— Ian Thomson, President, ABFC

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Advanced Biofuels Canada (ABFC) announced the release of the Biofuels in Canada (BIC) 2018 report, which updates and expands upon the last annual report by Navius Research.

“Data about our industry has become even more important as biofuels’ role in meeting federal Clean Fuel Standard targets becomes evident. Provincial work to update renewable and low carbon fuel policies also continues. These annual reports have become increasingly comprehensive to stay relevant in the very dynamic Canadian fuels and carbon pricing arena,” said Ian Thomson, president ABFC.

The updated report catalogs biofuel blending rates, biofuel types, and feedstocks utilized at the provincial level. Greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions are assessed annually by fuel type, with estimates of biofuels impact on consumer fuel expenditures, GHG abatement costs, and the impact of taxation policies on lower carbon fuels.

Amongst the study’s highlights:
• Ethanol consumption has increased from roughly 1,700 million liters in 2010 to 2,850 million liters in 2016, accounting for over 6% of fuel consumption in the gasoline pool. Renewable fuel consumption in the diesel pool was 540 million liters in 2016, accounting for roughly 2% of diesel fuel consumption.
• Annual avoided lifecycle GHG emissions resulting from biofuel consumption were 4.1 Mt/yr in 2016, a slight step backwards from 2015.
• Biofuel consumption reduced fuel expenditures in Canada by 0.26% from 2010 to 2016, relative to a counterfactual scenario of no biofuel blending.
• The cost impact is equivalent to an average $16/yr savings for an archetypal gasoline consumer (i.e. private light-duty vehicle) or an additional cost of $223/yr for an archetypal diesel consumer (i.e. a long-haul trucker).

The report continued to highlight the need for a government review of taxation on biofuels. As biofuels generally have lower energy densities than gasoline and diesel, volumetric fuel taxes (e.g., excise, carbon) on biofuels unnecessarily increase fuel costs for consumers and create windfall tax revenues for governments. Governments should align fuel taxation policies to meet transport and climate goals by supporting increased use of low carbon advanced biofuels.

Nexus of Technology & Policy Drive Programming at PBS' White House Chronicle

Science Transforming Life

We are missing something if we don't realize how profoundly technology has changed our world and continues to reshape it,”

— Llewellyn King, Host "White House Chronicle"

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Llewellyn King, executive producer and host of "White House Chronicle," a weekly news and public affairs program on PBS and other broadcast outlets, announced today six areas in which the program will be making mini-series through the end of the year.

These are:

1. The future of electricity and grid security.

2. The future of electrified surface transportation.

3. The future of air transportation, emphasizing electric and unmanned aircraft.

4. The future of work, automation and the gig economy.

5. The future of block chain, cybersecurity and artificial intelligence.

6. The future of additive manufacturing (3D printing) and how it will change manufacturing and affect jobs.

"Our interest in these subjects reflects our belief that while politics are vital, other forces also shape the future. We are missing something if we don't realize how profoundly technology has changed our world and continues to reshape it," said King, a veteran writer and broadcaster on the intersection of politics and technology.

"Eventually, all these changes will have to be addressed in policy by the White House and Congress," he said.

"White House Chronicle" is looking to partner with companies, universities or foundations that understand the importance of our techno-political future.

"White House Chronicle" airs nationwide on 200 PBS and public, educational and government (PEG) access stations, and the commercial AMG TV network. It airs worldwide on Voice of America Television and Radio in English and Chinese.

An audio version of the half hour program airs four times on SiriusXM Radio's P.O.T.U.S. (Politics of the United States), Channel 124.
