The world needs renewable energy, NUCAP is developing the solutions
Today we already can achieve the goal of zero greenhouse gas emissions in buildings, displacing the use of fossil fuels. NUCAP Energy works on innovative solutions in the field of capturing, storing, and using solar thermal and waste heat energy.
NUCAP’s surface enhancement increases efficiency of both types of solar thermal collectors: air-based and hydronic-based. In air-based thermal collectors, NUCAP’s material outperforms high absorption TiNOX material under identical conditions. High-efficiency collectors can collect enough thermal energy to cover the heating needs of a building. In hydronic-based thermal collectors, we use a combination of micro-channel flow pattern with enhanced heat exchange surfaces. This combination outperforms the efficiency of contemporary solar thermal collectors.
Surface enhancement increases heat recovery in hybrid photovoltaic-thermal collectors. Cooling photovoltaic panels enhance the efficiency of electricity generation. Recovered heat is then used for the thermal needs of a building.
This material is perfect for thermally active building cladding, providing supplementary heating and cooling of the interior of a building. NUCAP’s surface enhancement fully integrates thermal collectors/dissipators into a building's envelope, making the system totally ‘invisible” to a passerby.
Our solutions recover waste heat from gases, as well as from liquid and solid sources. The heat recovery systems use GRIPMetal-based composites of different materials to reduce costs and increase efficiencies of the heat recovery process.

Fighting Pandemics (Current and Future Ones) by Retrofitting our Buildings with High Efficiency Ventilation Systems and Hydronic Heating
Properly built air-flow systems for public buildings (offices, schools) and private dwellings are a low-tech approach to fight the current and future pandemics. These systems should prevent cluster infections to allow people to safely work and learn in large groups in one room.
Currently most of the buildings in North America use hot air to heat the interior. All toxins, bacteria and viruses are just being spread by the hot air circulating inside the buildings. Hydronic heating in tandem with proper ventilation and heat recovery systems are positioned for the future vast market demand for retrofits.
GRIPMetal allows for a substantial improvement of efficiency of all these systems: radiant heating, ventilation, and heat recovery.
NUCAP Energy isn’t the only NUCAP family of companies fighting COVID-19. With their own individual efforts, other NUCAP divisions are doing their part to fight this pandemic.
Our Spidertech division has found a way to use its Kinesiology tape technology to create wearable face masks that are safe and easy to use. Because these masks are strapless they never fall or get out of place. See more at: www.spidertech.com
Our GRIPBlock division has developed a LEGO like building technology that’s helping our restaurants and schools stay safe. With social distancing shelters and walls. Just another way NUCAP technology making our public spaces safe again. See more at: www.gripblock.com
