Mission

Picture From Fundy National Park, N.B.ProSolarTec strives to find an economical way of using the Sun's energy to produce a sustainable and permeant source of energy that is environmentally sound and safe for the planet.

According to the IPCC, climate change is largely due to the burning of fossil fuels by the human race. For a little over one hundred years we have been using these carbon-based fuels to produce and satisfy our energy needs and we have learned that the major byproduct of these fuels is Carbon Dioxide. This gas has a tendency to trap heat thus if there is more Carbon Dioxide within the atmosphere, more heat will be trapped from the sun's radiation.

Enter Prometheus Solar Technologies, ProSolarTec has the capability and knowhow to help eliminate the need for fossil fuels and thus eliminate human caused global warming. Because the company's Solar+ units have the capability of producing steam efficiently, energy production  can be achieved through propelling a turbine, which could replace coal burning, natural gas and other heavy fossil fuel power plants. On top of this. the Solar+ can also be used as a Solar Furnace. This eliminates the need to burn fossil fuels to in processes that require high temperatures.

Dalhousie Collaboration

Various collaborative projects have been conducted between the LIFE Prometheus team and Dalhousie University. Heat of fusion and ray tracing research, conducted by faculty and students of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, have been used to both measure the current power of Prometheus prototypes, and project the potential of prototypes in the future. The consensus of these research projects: Not only is this technology already incredibly powerful, but there is potential for even more growth.
