Emerging Solutions & Technologies

Nova Scotia Power is actively exploring new opportunities to offer our Commercial & Industrial customers.

Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems (VRF)

VRF systems are similar to ductless mini split heat pumps, but are more efficient. They operate efficiently at partial loads and are not limited to on/off operation, therefore - “variable” refrigerant flow. Advanced applications allow for simultaneous heating and cooling in different zones.

Variable Air Volume Systems (VAV)

VAV is a type of heating, cooling and ventilation system solution. Unlike constant air volume (CAV) systems, which supply a constant airflow at a varying temperature, VAV systems vary the airflow at a constant temperature.

Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV)

ERV’s exchange the moisture and heat that is contained in normally exhausted buildings or space air and use it to treat (precondition) the incoming outdoor ventilation air in residential and commercial HVAC systems.

Building Automation Systems (BAS)

BAS strategies are used to control and automate a building's heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting and other systems to minimize energy consumption and ensure optimal building performance.

Battery Storage

The battery can be charged using an alternative energy source, like solar panels, or by the grid during off-peak times when a high amount of renewable energy is present. Click here to learn more.

Solar Photovoltaic

Generate your own electricity and better manage your electrical demand. Click here to learn more about solar energy.


The electrification of energy that uses traditionally powered by fossil fuels (diesel, gasoline, natural gas, fuel oil or propane) in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase energy efficiency, improve air quality and the security of supply and increase safety by reducing explosive hazards.

Three Phase Converters

If there is no access to 3-phase power supply, expand your operation by installing 3-phase converter to supply 3-phase power equipment.

Smart Buildings, Data and Analytics

Internet of Things (IoT) - Derive actionable intelligence through your network of connected equipment
Demand Side Management (DSM) - Understand your electrical load profile to see if shifting demand is possible.
