Government of Canada invests in Montreal-based company to advance anti-reflection glass technology for solar panels

The government of Canada announced an investment of $750,000 in Montreal-based Edgehog Advanced Technologies.

Canada is a North American country stretching from the U.S. in the south to the Arctic Circle in the north. Major cities include massive Toronto, west coast film centre Vancouver, French-speaking Montréal and Québec City, and capital city Ottawa.

Quebec — The government of Canada announced an investment of $750,000 in Montreal-based Edgehog Advanced Technologies.

The investment will support Edgehog by scaling up its Eluminar™ nanotextured, anti-reflection glass technology for high-performing solar panels.

“Canadians are driving forward innovation in the energy sector, including in the solar industry,” said Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources.

The technology is expected to increase energy production in the winter without using expensive and high-maintenance sun-tracking systems.

The government says the technology has the potential to accelerate the adoption of solar panels, including in Canada’s northern and remote communities.

Funded through Natural Resources Canada’s Energy Innovation Program, the project advances clean energy technologies that help Canada meet its climate change targets and build a low-emissions energy future.

This is done through investments in research, development and demonstration projects, as well as through related scientific activities.
