Sean Fleming, BEng

Sean is pursuing his Master of Applied Science in the field of mechanical engineering with a focus on increasing battery life in off-grid renewable energy systems.

He graduated from Dalhousie University in 2010 with a BEng in Mechanical Engineering.  Since January 2011 Sean has been working with Solar Global Solutions (SGS), a renewable energy company based in Halifax.  Through his work experience, Sean has gained a strong understanding of the design, practical considerations, and economics of small scale off-grid renewables.  To date Sean has designed, sold, and supervised the production of over 400 solar powered street lights.  Sean’s graduate studies directly relate to the work he is doing with SGS, with the end goal being a commercially viable way to model and extend the battery life of SGS off-grid lighting systems.
Outside of work, Sean volunteers with Junior Achievement Nova Scotia and enjoys travelling, photography, and the outdoors.
