Net Zero Home Build: My Biggest Regret Building My New House. There are a lot of different paths you can take to get to a net-zero home. Everything from passive homes to earthships to modular and factory built houses. You can retrofit an existing building or you can build a new one.
We’ve seen wind turbines popping up everywhere in the last few years for grid scale renewable energy installations. Solar panels for home has been a disruptive technology, but what if we could scale down wind turbines and install them on our home?
The Truth About 3D Printed Homes. 3D printing may reshape the world canvas for good. Like many inventions, 3D printed homes been hyped up over the last few years. Like the Icon 3D printed homes in Austin, Texas. But what if I told you that Italian architects designed the world’s first 3D printed house out of dirt…yep, dirt. Clearly, the hype hasn’t bitten the dust yet.
Exploring How This Plant Could Replace Concrete. We've already explored tiny homes, earthships, passive homes, and also modular homes as more efficient and sustainable alternatives to traditional houses. But what if you could build sustainable homes or apartment buildings that's not only fire-resistant like concrete, but also more efficient and sustainable than conventional homes?
When it comes to sustainable living, our homes have an important part to play. Alternatives like earthship homes, modular homes, factory built homes, and passive houses can really reduce the carbon footprint of our houses, but they aren't affordable for most people yet.
How a Tesla Powerwall and a virtual power plant could be the future of energy storage. Solar power is great for generating clean, renewable energy, but energy storage is key for the future of renewable energy.
We all take freshwater for granted, but we shouldn't. By 2025 two thirds of the global population may experience water scarcity, so there's a fresh water crisis coming. And that’s because of global warming driven droughts.
Why Rust Batteries May Be the Future of Energy - While renewable energy sources like solar and wind have now become cheaper than fossil fuels, developing long-term energy storage is key to overcome their intermittency.
The Perovskite solar cell could be the future of energy. What if we could build solar panels using materials that aren't supply-limited and with a lower carbon process?
What you need to know before getting a Tesla Powerwall (first impressions and early review). There’s a few things I learned going through the installation process that might be useful if you’re thinking about getting a home battery installed.
