Abstract

This project aims to provide a guideline on how to commercialize a solar space heating technology, which is currently being developed by a fellow architectural major qualifying project team (MQP). Using Business Model Canvas and the Jerry Schaufeld’s commercialization model as a referential framework the team looked into providing a guideline for a commercialization plan of a solar technology product for a broader solar market. Additionally, an engineering economic analysis was carried out to understand whether there is a potential for the product through the consumer point of view.
