Resumen:
Una pyme británica ha diseñado una nueva casa ecológica asequible que no necesita conexión eléctrica, de gas ni agua ni servicio de alcantarillado. El diseño no solo reduce el consumo de energía y agua sino que también integra nuevas características que permiten habitar la vivienda sin conexión a la red. Esta casa satisface las necesidades de viviendas protegidas o de vacaciones y de constructoras interesadas en edificios de nueva construcción. Se buscan socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de joint venture y financiación para construir el prototipo de la vivienda.

Tittle:
Off-grid affordable prefabricated zero-carbon eco-home that integrates novel energy efficient features
Summary:
A UK SME has designed an affordable, innovative eco-home that does not need connection to electricity, gas, sewerage or water. The design not only minimises energy and water use but integrates a number of novel features that make off-grid living possible. The eco-home would suit social housing needs or holiday park dwellings as well as private builders interested in new build. The SME is looking for a partner for joint venture and / or financial agreements in order to build a prototype house.
Description:
Designing and building an off-grid eco-home is a significant challenge for a number of reasons. The house needs Passivhaus standards in order to achieve very low energy use and this state of the art technology comes with significant expense. Modern living in a traditional sense also uses a large number of power-hungry appliances which presents its own challenges. A UK SME has re-thought the whole concept of the modern eco-house and through clever integration and some novel technology, has developed a truly affordable solution.

The design focuses first on reduction of energy demand. This takes into account alternatives to power hungry appliances for cooking and washing clothes, as well as the fabric of the building itself which is both well insulated and has significant thermal mass.

The design then integrates a number of key energy and resource efficient technologies such as heat recovery, modern composting toilet, grey water storage and alllies these with novel solar PV panels, battery storage and biomass heating.

The market for this eco-house may include holiday homes providers, extensions to houses, public sector housing or private self-builders. In order to prove this innovative concept, the SME is looking for a partner to help build a prototype house. This partner could be a small construction company, holiday park providers, public sector bodies or private individuals and could take the form of a joint venture or financial agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
- Factory pre-fabricated, allowing the entire house to be shipped to site using two lorries. Takes only one day to assemble on-site and can be disassembled in the same time.
- Requires no foundations and very little groundwork - a level plot with railway sleepers would suffice. A grey water soak-away is required.
- Power supplied by novel solar PV panels
- A state-of-the-art battery bank which has a charge/recharge cycle efficiency of 97% (compared with 80% when using lead acid batteries)
- Multiple heavy duty, low frequency, high efficiency inverters providing reliable sine wave AC power
- Heat is actively collected from the surrounding environment (sunshine, ambient air and even rainwater)
- Almost 9 cubic meters of thermal mass stores the collected heat and smooths out the fluctuations in weather conditions
- Heating backup is provided by a wood-burning (multi-fuel) stove
- Low-emissivity strengthened double glazing used throughout, fitted using anti-thermal bridging frame system
- Air-sealed construction with unique and innovative active heat-recovery ventilation, whose primary purpose is humidity control when cooking, showering and/or drying clothes
- Passive heat recovery technology is employed to maintain air-freshness
- Built from reclaimed boat-grade heavy duty steel with copious insulation inside and out. Lifetime guarantee on structural integrity and absence of corrosion.
- Low power appliances and LED lighting throughout, including halogen oven, induction hob, steam restricted kettle, heat recovered fridge/freezer, low power microwave oven, high efficiency washing machine (minimal water consumption), high efficiency dishwasher (minimal water consumption)
- Water supply provided by rain water capture and air moisture extraction with up to 5000 litres of filtrated and UV-sterilised water.
