Self-powered houses - Energy solutions for buildings
The concept of self-powered houses is no longer new in the construction sector, with the goal of optimizing renewable energy and minimizing the amount of greenhouse gases, many current construction projects are also being encouraged to design. Following the self-powered building model to contribute to protecting the living environment effectively.
A self-powered energy house or a zero-energy energy house is a real energy-consuming building that is zero, meaning that the total amount of energy used by this building in a year is approximately equal to the amount of renewable energy generated in this building.
In fact, the self-powered building minimizes energy demand, these buildings are connected to the grid to send unused power. The self-powered building is designed to maximize the use of natural light by using windows and louvers to catch the light, while preventing heat from entering the building when not needed. set. This reduces the cost of heating, cooling and optimizing natural light.
When an artificial light is needed, an automatic system will automatically adjust the brightness of the lamp or turn it off when there is enough natural light. The automatic thermal glass windows will darken when sunlight is shining. Direct projection, helps control temperature, brightness and glare.
An intelligent energy management system can turn off all unnecessary equipment when people go out, adjust the room temperature by using sensors, adjust the shade inside and outside the door to optimize temperature and natural light.
In addition to the intelligent design that saves energy, the self-powered building uses green materials that limit energy loss & optimize costs, especially the building envelope. The roof can be used with Eurozip vertical rib aluminum roof combined with solar panels. The Eurozip aluminum sloping roof system itself has the ability to prevent heat from escaping to the outside as well as limiting the outside heat to the building. This greatly reduces the energy used for air conditioning.
On the other hand, when using the EuroZip vertical aluminum roof, the installation of solar energy on the roof is extremely simple, without affecting the roof structure. These solar panels provide a significant amount of electricity for the building. In Vietnam, every day, an average of 1m2 of solar batteries can provide up to 3.5 kWh. With this power level, solar cells not only provide enough power for the system but also provide power to other areas.
However, the solution from materials is an important role in designing self-powered houses. Because, it not only ensures the aesthetics of the project but also saves and regenerates energy.
