DENVER – Five high-potential Canadian technology companies will make presentations Jan. 18 at The Commons on Champa, 1245 Champa St. in downtown Denver.

The Canadian Technology Accelerator provides high potential Canadian technology companies with an opportunity to access the unique resources in the Rocky Mountain region to help them grow at a global scale.

The program is sponsored by the Consulate General of Canada in partnership with Innosphere.

Each of the companies will give a formal 10-minute presentation, followed by time for networking.



The companies are:

Clearflow Group - Clearflow provides water treatment solutions that are an environmentally friendly, low cost, simple approach to solids removal from water as well as for slope stabilization/binding and erosion control which is a huge contributing to sediment loads in receiving water.  Clearflow's products reduce impact on the environment, and can also reduce operational costs, footprint of large sediment ponds and allow for the potential to recycle this water back into their operations.  

Spectrafy - Spectrafy is an Ottawa-based company that is reinventing the measurement of sunlight and the atmosphere. There is $100M of solar and atmospheric measurement hardware sold each year that is either hugely expensive and difficult to use, or relatively crude. For customers in the solar, weather and agricultural industries, who need solar spectral and atmospheric data, SolarSIM sensors combine simple, rugged hardware and advanced software to make it easy and affordable to obtain the highest quality of solar and atmospheric data.

Hydrogen In Motion (H2M)  - Hydrogen In Motion Inc. (H2M) is a Canadian SME that has developed a ground-beaking hydrogen storage material that offers twice the range at half the cost of compressed tanks.  The H2M proprietary nano-material adsorbs and releases hydrogen at ambient conditions and at pressures under 50 bar and is the best in class in terms of volume, weight, performance and cost.

QD Solar - QD SOLAR is in the business of developing and delivering, in partnership with others, the world's best performance, lowest cost solar photovoltaic technology, through the use of proprietary infrared-converting solar cells deployed in concert with the standard crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells in today's solar modules / panels. QD Solar use quantum dot materials to capture the sun's infrared energy in a much more cost effective way than any other proven material, and add the power together with high performance silicon cells in a new hybrid module, to improve the cost per watt and gross margins of PV module manufacturers.

EcoDrain - Ecodrain has developed a suite of next generation drain water heat recovery systems for homeowners featuring a core patented technology which boosts the rate of heat transfer allowing customers to save up to 65% of the energy used in heating water.
