Donations help fuel many projects, including sustainable prototype houses in rural Alaska, renewable energy tests, and the production of educational videos, publications and multimedia. Your contribution to CCHRC makes change happen by providing valuable support to our research efforts.
Vacuum Insulated Panel Test
CCHRC is testing a new type of Vacuum Insulated Panel at the Research and Testing Facility. The high R-value panels are developed by Panasonic. By removing the air from the panels, they dramatically increased the insulation value without increasing the thickness. CCHRC will test handling and installation techniques for VIPs and help Panasonic develop best practices.
