“Most successful integrated renewables system” –
A New Concept In Renewable Energy
The Zero Carbon Solution displaces conventional renewable energy technologies for new buildings. The breakthrough development of a practical and low cost form of inter-seasonal heat storage, the Earth Energy Bank (EEB), has made it easy to store summer-time heat in the earth below buildings for use the following winter.
This opens the door to cost effective zero carbon buildings when this innovation is combined with other low carbon technologies. A hybrid solar array, also known as PV-Thermal or PV-T, enables much more solar energy to be collected than conventional PV or thermal arrays. Its panels deliver four times the energy per sq m than PV by extracting both heat and electricity from the same panel. In winter, the stored heat is extracted from the EEB using a ground source heat pump.
As seen in:
The ZERO CARBON SOLUTION is a unique combination of technologies that, for the first time, makes it practical and affordable to achieve zero carbon status for new homes and low-rise commercial developments with appropriately engineered building fabric.
The central elements of the system are:
