WATCH: Could You Live In Only 125 Square Feet?

WATCH: Could You Live In Only 125 Square Feet? | Sustainable Architecture | Scoop.it
Could you live in only 125 square feet? That's exactly what a Boulder, Colo. couple are doing now that they have completed building their brand new, tiny home from scratch.

R82 Energy Refurbishment

Miguel Salgado Pérez's insight:

The main purpose of the project is to improve the energetic efficiency of R82 company buildings and try to design and adapt new renewable energy systems.
At the same time we would like to know how far the renewable energy systems can save sources and money and how long it would take to depreciate this investment.

Energy Atlas Berlin and Neighbourhood Demonstrator (Video version 2)

This video shows a live demo of some functionalities of the Energy Atlas Berlin. The Energy Atlas is an analysis and decision support tool for strategic energy planning at the city scale. It is based on the semantic 3D city model of Berlin (http://www.businesslocationcenter.de/en/3d-model-of-berlin), modeled and represented according to the CityGML standard issued by the Open Geospatial Consortium (http://www.citygml.org).

The "Energy Atlas" includes all data from the Solar Atlas Berlin including the rating of the suitability of all individual roofs for each of the 550,000 buildings in Berlin for the production of photovoltaic energy and solar thermal energy. It also integrates heating energy demand estimations and estimates of the energetic rehabilitation possibilities for all buildings. Furthermore, the potential for shallow and deep geothermal energy production for the entire Berlin region is being determined and represented allowing to make an integrated assessment of different types of renewable energy production alternatives and the corresponding energy demands.
