Our award winning, ultra-low carbon, solar home created
Working in partnership with architect, Rob Goodburn, we have completed an ultra-low, integrated renewable system at his new home. The renewables system incorporates roof integrated solar PV and solar thermal, in conjunction with a biomass heating system using a thermal store coupled to underfloor heating and low temperature radiators. This is complimented by waste water heat recovery, grey water toilet flushing, a whole house heat recovery system, and LED lighting.
In recognition of the project Solar Kingdom picked up an award for the best integrated renewables system at the Solar Power Portal awards, the number one UK event for solar professionals. Solar Kingdom was recognised for the outstanding work in planning, commissioning and installing, evaluating and optimising the integrated technologies.
The system has created a home that emits very low levels of carbon whilst producing green energy. This is turn leads to very low running costs.
A post occupancy study is planned in conjunction with Napier University and BRE to evaluate aspects of the buildings performance.
