Solar Movie Green Architects

In the late 1990's we made a tutorial called 'Green by Design'. It was made for the Royal Australian institute of Architects, and it won an award in 1998 from the Western Australian government. In the production and direction, my colleague Dr Bill Parker was involved and the messages in this tutorial are still very relevant for the present day. Buildings consume a large proportion for the energy used by our society. In the past very few have been energy efficient, and very few have used the benefits of the sun. We now.

Have the opportunity to create structures that use less energy, and work in harmony with our environment. Whatever the size or purpose of a building the principles of low energy design and minimal environmental impact can be applied. The leaders in this process are the energy conscious architects with the experience, the depth of knowledge and creative skills needed. Any house, any building benefits by the knowledge and the use of a low energy approach to the design process. It's an essential part of good design. You save energy, you save money. It's a very simple equation.

Green Buildings Low Energy Buildings in Australia

Hello I'm Garry Baverstock I'm in my office in front of a beautiful painting of Ningaloo Reef which is a world heritage marine park in western australia and its painted by my good friend michelle miller I'm here to tell you about low energy buildings in australia a book which we wore in the 70s and published in the 80s and it covers all the design criteria needed to design a top rated passive solar house anywhere in australia It is available in hard copy on the shop in solare But also We have got all the various climatic zones such as shown on this map where you.

Solar Movie Save Energy Costs With Climate Sensible Design

In the late 1990's we made a solar movie a tutorial in conjuction with Channel 9 t.v. station. It was introduced by Russell Gooderich as part of the 'Real Estate Programme'. The man who produced the segment, David Karsten, went on to make 'Climate Sensible Designs Living in a Home The Breathes' tutorial which is also available on the solare website. If you think about it, much of the cost of running your home can be directly attributed to heating in winter and cooling in summer. Today David Karsten looks at how much you.

Can save in energy costs by choosing a climate sensible design. Architect Garry Baverstock has devoted 25 years of his career to promoting the advantages of energy efficient home design and says the first step in taking the most advantage of seasonal conditions is to choose a rectangular rather than a square shaped block. In the southern hemisphere we really need to select a block that faces north to the backyard or to the side, in this case here. So that allows the winter sun to come through in the winter time at the same time have privacy from your neighbours.

Once you've established a northerly orientation it's then a case of working in the essential elements of energy efficiency into your home design elements that won't compromise the visual appeal. The basic principles are getting a roughly a two to one proportion placed on the block in order to get the northern exposure. Around about 50 of the northern face should be glass. It's good to have a deciduous pergola effect, either with a Tecto Pergola that we put in our designs or some sort of deciduous vine that shades in summer and exposes in winter.

Insulation layers at roof and ceiling level as well as in the wall cavity works together with the heavyweight mass of the brick and concrete construction to store the energy. Well it's a typical winter's day outside, a cold 13 degrees and I'll tell you what, you really do feel the dfference when you pop inside to a comfortable eighteen and a half degrees. Now, if you consider that's all achieved without the use of heaters, it just goes to show how much of a success this concept really is. Now as well as achieving a constant temperature, a solar hot water unit is another way to save.

On energy costs a subject Garry knows a lot about. I just happen to be chairman of the Solar Hot Water Manufacturers Association and just about to launch a campaign to get the consumer $750 rebate from the government for the purchase of a solar hot water system and we believe that's really important because it enhances the whole effect. The passive solar input saving you about 30 of your energy costs from solar hot water. Another energy efficient feature is the maximisation of daylight by adding a central uplift area.

Like a window or skylight in the centre of the house to get light from a northerly direction to a part of the house that's usually cold and dark. By maximising daylight you can at least halve your electricity bills on lighting. A climate sensible design can save between up to sixty and ninety percent in energy costs and the great news is some of these features can be retrofitted to your existing home. Garry does run university extension courses at UWA and workshops at Homebase in Wembley as well as an advisory line on energy efficient design.

Why Teslas Powerwall Battery Is Amazing

All of humanity just won a really important victory in our battle to lower the CO2 emissions that are causing climate change. Tesla CEO Elon Musk introduced the world to the Powerwall, a wallmounted battery for your house which aims to accelerate our transition to clean solar and windpower. Before the powerwall, there was no way to store the energy generated from the panels that capture sunlight on our roofs. So during the day they could give you the power you needed, but at night, you had to rely on the grid, which gets most of its.

Electricity from coal, natural gas, and nuclear reactors. There had been some early home batteries out there, but nothing that was nearly this affordable. But Tesla, which has built thousands of large, lithiumion battery packs for its growing electric car business, was able to produce a similar battery for buildings at a scale that dropped the production costs dramatically. The lowest capacity model will cost just $3,000. And this is the first generation of the productbefore Tesla's even completed building its massive new Gigafactory, or any real competitors have entered the market, events that will surely push the price down.

Even further, while increasing the energy storage capacity of the Powerwall. Here's how it works. When the sun is out, solar panels will power your house and charge the Powerwall at the same time. And when the sun goes down, this charged battery will kick in to meet most or all of your electricity needs until the sun comes back up again the next morning. This is gamechanging. More and more people will go completely offgrid. Every building whether it's a home, office, business, warehouse, factory they can all.

Install solar panels and some Powerwalls and instantly see their fossil fuelgenerated electricity needs drop significantly. Not every building will be able to go completely solarpowered, but most will get pretty close, especially as our appliances become more and more energy efficient. And it gets even better. The powerwall will be connected to the Internet and the rest of the energy grid. Here in Southern California, and most other heavily populated places, the electricity company charges us a lot more when we use electricity during peak timethat's in the afternoon and early evening when the temperatures are warmest and most of us are.

Home and still awake. The Tesla battery is smart, and knows when electricity is cheapest, so that's when it will draw from the grid to charge itself. And then, during peak time when you need electricity, the battery will power the house. Sometimes, you'll be able to sell back unused power to the utility company during peak time to even make a profit. It's basically going to make each individual building its own power station. Overnight, Tesla seems less a futuristic car company, and more like the man who inspired the company's name, a revolutionary electricity engineer named Nikola.
