Developing Energy-Efficient HVAC-R Systems for Smart Buildings

AYO Smart Home Ltd. is pursuing the development of integrated energy management technologies for smart buildings. Various approaches such as heat recovery, solar energy, energy storage, and passive cooling are being investigated by the AYO Smart Home Ltd. company. Novel technologies for Heating, Ventilating, Air-Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVAC-R) are also considered as a crucial part of the investigation.
HVAC-R systems consume 50% of the total energy in buildings and 20% of the total national energy usage in European and American countries. The overall reduction of energy consumption due to smart HVAC-R systems can therefore be remarkable in smart buildings. Utilization of novel insulations and energy-efficient control of the air conditioning system are among the many technologies to be developed in this project. As a continuation of several years of research at Simon Fraser University, this project is an exciting opportunity to elevate the developed technologies to an industrial level.
