The Zero Bill Home Lunched on BRE Innovation Park

March 04, 2016

RIBA award winning zero carbon design and development pioneers ZEDfactory have unveiled their innovative response to the housing crisis - the Zero Bills Home. Zero Bills in a nutshell aims to make home energy bills obsolete. With a clever design that minimises energy requirements, the very low energy needs of the household are met by a roof-integrated PV and energy storage system which can also generate enough power to service a small electric vehicle.

 

Zero Bills is aiming to be one of the first homes assessed under BRE’s new Home Quality Mark which provides consumer-friendly, impartial information via a star rating system on the quality and sustainability of new homes. BRE’s Chief Executive – Peter Bonfield who opened the home today said ‘Zero Bills represents new thinking and a fresh approach to the significant challenges we face in the housing market – it hits the mark in terms of a commercially viable volume delivery solution that is great for people and the environment.’

Description

 

In his seminal new book, Bill Dunster demonstrates that zero-carbon, zero-waste design doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag, and is achievable today. This book presents a range of tools that form key ingredients in a low carbon society. Focusing on technologies that are already in use, ZEDlife explores both small-scale ideas (such as shelters and lighting) and large-scale solutions in buildings and across cities. An essential resource for both students and practitioners, ZEDlife offers an interdisciplinary approach to sustainability, making connections to a web of technologies through full-colour case studies of new build and retrofit projects from across the globe.

 

The argument for low-cost, zero-energy, zero-waste architecture has never been timelier. This book offers a forceful challenge to the status quo and provides workable, sustainable solutions for zero-carbon, zero-waste design.
