#Passivehouses are airtight buildings that use heat from appliances and even the occupants' bodies for warmth. They have thick insulation, are oriented to maximize winter sun and use a heat exchanger to warm outside air that circulates throughout. The result is a house that needs little or no extra energy for heating, even in very cold climates. While they are increasingly popular in Germany and Scandinavia, passive houses have yet to make inroads in Canada #Tuesdaytips #energyefficient
The implementation of batteries has allowed homeowners to be much more independent from the grid. YOU produce the power, YOU store it at home in your battery, and YOU consume it however you choose. It’s your power and you’re gonna do whatever you want with it, without worrying about rates. Talk about independence! Additionally, unlike older PV systems that would go offline during a power outage, batteries provide the backup power you need in an emergency. It’s like having a backup generator at your house that recharges on its own and is always connected! 🥂Here’s to National Battery Day (yesterday, February 18th) for the conveniences and comfort that batteries bring to our everyday lives!🔋
One of my favorite moments at @cruisingkitchens was creating the world's first energy-efficient food trucks for the @shell eco-marathon. With the help of the fantastic @ChefLudo who created a brilliant menu, we pushed the boundaries of conventional food truck designs. Each truck was equipped with innovative green energy technology to create a sustainable, high-performance product that doesn't need conventional fuels or chemicals.

The Drew house is a holiday retreat for Australian photographic artist, Marian Drew, and her brother Derek. In their youths the family took camping trips to the same area near Seventeen Seventy, a town just south of Gladstone and the most northerly surf break on the east Australian coast at the start of the Great Barrier Reef.
The house aims to create a kind of luxury campsite nestled amongst the knarled Bloodwoods and ancient Palms of the pristine ridge top site with forms that also reflect the strong iconography of the sugar mills that were also a large part of the family's history. Living and sleeping pods along with a bathhouse were built in Brisbane, close to construction services, and transported the 500km to site fully completed.
Separated sleeping and living areas allow the privacy of holidaying family groups and also more easily integrate into the existing landscape, which has been minimally disturbed. Covered walkways connect the various pods to the large outdoor living and dining area for shared meals and gatherings. This ribbed parabolic roof structure uses Aramax metal sheeting to free span the two identical, but reversed, hardwood timber truss frames.
Natural oiled Australian hardwood timbers and other minimally finished, simple materials have been combined to create indoor/outdoor spaces for maximum enjoyment of the unique bushland setting and mild sub-tropical climate.
Rainwater tanks, solar hot water and electrical panels, an energy efficient passive design and a community water recycling system, for everything but drinking and bathing, make the house largely self sufficient. The shower door glass features one of Marian's works and the custom printed outdoor seating fabrics use images of tree trunks photographed on the site.

Great Install by our team on this project with R&R Construction, awesome designs. Using Knauf Earthwool Glasswool insulation walls and ceiling.
We use spray full foam envelope insulation. Very effective and energy efficient insulation. I already feel warmer in here... This is an option we provide all our custom home buyers. . . #justicehomes #arcadia
In QLD , under the QDC MP4.1 SustainabilityCode, when you install a Ceiling Fan to an insulated Outdoor Living Area (must be not less than 12m2 in area with 2 open sides not less than 2.5m in width- roof to have a Total R Value of at least R1.5) it allows us to use the relaxation of the 2009 Deemed to Satisfy Provisions. Using this method of Energy Compliance, particulary with designs suspended above natural ground, using the DTS Provisions vs the 6 Star Software Solution in cases can save up to $10,000 in build costs. We have case studies available so don't hesitate to discuss this with me. Www.houseofstars.com.au

La iluminación #LED a nivel industrial permite la obtención de niveles de iluminancia mayores a los encontrados con la tecnología convencional (vapor de sodio, metal halide). Esto, se suma al hecho que el bajo consumo energético requiere de un calibre de cable menor, su función multivoltaje que evita averías por fluctuaciones del servicio y un número de horas de operación mayor.
En la fotografía se muestra un trabajo realizado por RGA en Polifilm de Venezuela en donde se instalaron las luminarias del galpón con campanas Led a 14 metros de altura, y el resultado permitía un trabajo a nivel de puesto de trabajo que superaba los niveles exigidos por la norma.
En este galpón se instalaron las luminarias LED tipo tubular para puestos de trabajo.
