The U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) annual Greenbuild International Conference & Expo November 8-9 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, Boston MA is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building.
While DC power operates many modern products in business applications, it powers far less for consumer use. However, some associations are developing standards that will lead to the rapid adoption of DC power distribution. This white paper takes a look at DC power and how some experts believe it is the answer for future energy needs.
Over 18,000 attendees are expected to attend Solar Power International at Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas for the four day event September 10-13.
Comparing self-regulating radiant heating to traditional forced-air and renewable energy systems reveals impressive energy savings and performance using the radiant system.
Electro Plastics, Inc. (EPI) (dba STEP Warmfloor) inventor of the only low-voltage, flat, homogeneous self-regulating Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater in the world, has many years of proven success.
In two months of spring and summer the home produced as much energy as it used.
Due to the self-regulating properties of the STEP system, the molecular structure of the heating elements only allow the consumption of energy that is needed to maintain the heat at a given location.
Electro Plastics, Inc. (EPI) (dba STEP Warmfloor) invented the only low-voltage, flat, homogeneous self-regulating Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater in the world, but that is just the beginning: it still needs a stronger government and industry recognition.
Often times, the early use of an invention is far different than what the future holds for it. Such is the case for nano particles and their Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) properties.
Nanotechnology research has been rapidly intensifying in several fields such as biomedical, optical and electronics. Now it is being used to create an efficient heating source inside of homes and buildings. The white paper explains what nanotechnology is and how it is transforming the way we heat our living spaces.
Nanoparticles, the microscopic particles having a very high surface area to volume ratio, will likely be your source to future heating comfort and efficiency.
Water is just as precious a resource as energy in the Proud Green Home of Louisville.
If you want to be at the top of the green building programs, you have to do the best of everything.
The Proud Green Home of Louisville is a sustainable, high performance home that will earn certification from multiple green building organizations.
Photovoltaic (PV) panels and other onsite renewables generate DC, but these systems still incur losses. Grid-connected renewables require an inverter to convert their DC to AC for the grid, even though it is changed immediately back to DC for onsite use.
The overall mission of Norton Commons is to provide its residents with More Life Per Square Foot.
The Proud Green Home of Louisville was designed and constructed with healthy living in mind.
Good design pays for itself, and the proof can be seen in the Proud Green Home of Louisville.
This home reflects what what the builder has learned so far about creating living spaces focused on good health, well-being, energy-efficiency, water-efficiency, durability and social and environmental restoration."
