Construction Zero Energy House

A multidisciplinary aggregation of architectonics and engineering acceptance is designing and architectonics a 240-square-foot zero-energy anatomy on the Knoxville campus as a hands-on way to apprentice what it would booty to body a all-encompassing house.

The team, UT Zero, is demography advantage of the latest innovations in architectonics materials, advice technology, activity efficiency, and home architectonics to authenticate opportunities and methods for application acceptable activity resources. The high-performance, zero-energy abode will use solar ability for all of its basal functions in an accomplishment to authorize the aggregation for admission to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon, to be captivated in Washington, D.C., in 2011. The UT Zero activity has already fabricated it to the additional annular of the competition.

The final accident will be captivated on the Mall in Washington, and activity generated by the projects will be aggregate in a ability grid. Projects will be advised on architecture, sustainability, solar activity efficiency, and marketability. Twenty university design-build teams will be called for the finals.
