Currently, SMIT is working on a number of installations set to proceed sometime this year. The University of Utah has secured funding to install Solar Ivy on the south-facing facade of the Orson Spencer Hall building. SMIT is working with Science World Vancouver to develop an innovative new exhibit space and will install a Solar Ivy wall at the Environment Museum of the Montreal Biosphere. There are also plans for a residential application as well as a screen on a parking garage, and now the company is taking orders for more projects. SMIT is also working on a tensile solar shade.
