Partnership to develop energy efficient Sunrooms using Miru electrochromic windows
VANCOUVER, BC, March 16, 2023 – Miru Smart Technologies, a developer of next-generation electrochromic windows (eWindows), and Four Seasons Sunrooms, a leader in the sunroom and outdoor living market for nearly fifty years, have signed a three year collaboration agreement to develop energy efficient eSunrooms exclusively made with Miru’s innovative and patented electrochromic windows (eWindows) technology.
Together, Four Seasons Sunrooms and Miru will co-develop eSunrooms constructed with eWindows, a modern, energy-efficient alternative to the traditional glass used in current sunrooms.
“Four Seasons Sunrooms has always set the standard in our industry, and this partnership to incorporate next-generation eWindows for sunrooms solidifies this leadership position” said Brian Fabian, Group Services Officer, Four Seasons Sunrooms. “Together with Miru, we are set to create the sunroom of the future—high performing, energy efficient, beautiful eSunrooms that are easily tintable—keeping heat and glare out, while maintaining a natural connection to the outside.”
“This partnership will transform the sunroom market with development of the first ever eSunroom, offering our unique eWindows to Four Seasons Sunrooms customers,” said Curtis Berlinguette, CEO, Miru Smart Technologies. “Miru’s eWindows are a perfect fit for forward-looking builders and homeowners to create elegant indoor-outdoor living spaces that provide tangible energy savings.”
The global sunroom market globally is $600M USD and is forecasted to grow to $900M USD over the next five years as builders and homeowners look for ways to connect their inside and outside living spaces. As the largest sunroom manufacturer in North America, with hundreds of dealers and multiple manufacturing facilities, Four Seasons Sunrooms is positioned to capture more market share with Miru’s exclusive technology.
Miru’s growth has been significantly aided by the support of the BC Innovative Clean Energy (BC ICE) Fund and the Canadian Sustainable Development Technology Fund (SDTC). Collaborative efforts such as these are important steps towards the sustainable and eco-friendly construction practices envisioned by these programs. These initiatives demonstrate the potential of innovative technologies to drive positive change in the clean energy sector.
