Radiant Geothermal Heating & Cooling -- Honda Smart Home US
 
03:10
In homes and cars, heating and air conditioning systems consume significant amounts of energy. In the ground beneath Honda Smart Home's backyard, eight 20-foot deep boreholes allow a geothermal heat pump to harness the ground's relatively stable thermal sink to heat and cool the home's floors and ceiling throughout the year. Researchers from UC Davis will evaluate the performance of the system to determine its adaptability to mainstream use. Honda Smart Home's heating and cooling system is five times more efficient than a comparable home. Learn more at HondaSmartHome.com and contribute to the conversation using #HondaSmartHome.

10 Amazing Underground Homes
 
06:38
From underground houses that look like hobbit homes or even a house that look like it was from the Teletubbies, these are amazing! Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 7. Stone Desert House - If you’re travelling through rural Greece, you might walk right past the Stone Desert House and not even know it. Situated between two adjacent hillsides, this simple, rectangular house looks more like an ancient bridge or ruin. It blends seamlessly into the landscape as grass and shrubs continue unabated down the hills and onto the roof. Strategically placed portholes illuminate the interior with natural light. And it takes advantage of the desert heat and cool cross-winds to keep the home at a comfortable temperature. If you’d like to go for a walk, just take the grass covered ramp that allows easy access outside. 6. Flower Petals House - For famous soccer star Gary Neville, not just any home will do. He’s submitted plans for a futuristic luxury home to be built in Bolton, UK. The plans call for an 8,000 square foot subterranean home, with different teardrop-shaped living areas around a central hub. When viewed from above, the living areas resemble the petals of a flower, thus the home’s name. The architects claim it will be a zero carbon development, taking advantage of natural light and ventilation, rain water, heat pumps, and a wind turbine to power the house. Despite its environmentally friendly design, the plans have been rejected because residents think it will have too much impact on the surrounding protected land. 5. Sedum House - Architect Tom Ground knew he wanted to build something special for his home in the village of Gimingham, England. He decided to build an eco-friendly house of the future, in his spare time, over the course of 4 years. He set the house in the side of a hill and oriented it based on the sun. He built a large curved roof that would block the rays of the sun in the summer but let the rays shine through in the winter, when the sun was positioned lower in the sky. The roof is covered in sedum, a living succulent plant, from which the house gets its name. 4. The Underground House - Phil and Helen Reddy knew they wanted to build an environmentally friendly earth-sheltered home and when they found some available land in an old quarry overlooking Eden valley in Cumbria, England, they knew they’d found the ideal spot for their dream house. Local architect John Bodger designed a two story house that burrowed back into the hill, but still made use of natural resources for light, heat, and power. They were so happy with the house that they decided to build a separate structure for Helen’s clinic and veterinary practice, which seemed a natural fit given the beautiful location. 3. The Hidden House - You’d better get an invite if you want to visit the Hidden House in Wroclaw, Poland, otherwise you may never find it. The driveway ends at a grassy field, which hides the huge grass covered trapdoor that allows entry into the house. The home is built partially underground, in the remains of an abandoned tunnel, with one side open to the countryside. Natural light illuminates the living areas and part of the structure is cantilevered to provide a panoramic view of the area. It also includes a grassy roof that is only accessible to the owners, via a set of stairs that rises up from the home below. 2. Malator House - Malator House is a subterranean house located in Wales, built for a former member of the Welsh parliament. The roof of the house is completely covered in grass and the house itself is nearly invisible when viewed from above. The only giveaway is a large glass window that overlooks St. Brides Bay. The interior consists of an open plan concept, similar in style to a medieval hall. It is affectionately known as the “Teletubby House” by the locals, due to its uncanny resemblance to the Teletubbies home in the children’s television show. 1. Cave House - Proving once again that you can find anything you need online, the Sleeper family did just that when they decided to purchase a cave they found on Ebay! Located in Festus, Missouri, the Cave House originally started out as a mine and later was used as a skating rink and concert venue before the Sleepers decided to use it to build their dream home. And it was a labor of love – the Sleepers slept in a tent inside the cave while the house was being built, but after four long years, they finally achieved their one-of-a-kind home. The house uses geothermal and passive solar systems to keep the temperature at a comfortable 70 degrees all year long. And storage isn’t a problem – the house only takes up 2,240 of the 17,000 available square feet in the cave.

Nebraska retiree uses earths's heat to grow oranges in snow
 
18:17
Winter temperatures in Alliance, Nebraska can drop to -20°F (the record low is -40°F/C), but retired mailman Russ Finch grows oranges in his backyard greenhouse without paying for heat. Instead, he draws on the earth's stable temperature (around 52 degrees in his region) to grow warm weather produce- citrus, figs, pomegranates - in the snow. Finch first discovered geothermal heating in 1979 when he and his wife built it into their 4400-square-foot dream home to cut energy costs. Eighteen years later they decided to add a 16'x80' greenhouse in the backyard. The greenhouse resembles a pit greenhouse (walipini) in that the floor is dug down 4 feet below the surface and the roof is slanted to catch the southern sun. To avoid using heaters for the cold Nebraska winter nights, Finch relies on the warm underground air fed into the greenhouse via plastic tubing under the yard and one fan. Finch sells a "Citrus in the Snow" report detailing his work with his "geo-air" greenhouses and says anyone can build a market-producing greenhouse for about $25,000 or "less than the cost of a heat system on a traditional greenhouse". http://greenhouseinthesnow.com/index.html https://faircompanies.com/videos/nebraska-retiree-uses-earthss-energy-to-grow-oranges-in-nebraska-cold/

Geothermal Solar Greenhouse Overview - Climate Battery Discussion - Sustainable Living
 
03:32
Osentowski, director and founder of Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute (CRMPI), farms at 7,200 feet on a steep, rocky hillside in Colorado, incorporating deep, holistic permaculture design with practical common sense. It is at this site, high on a mountaintop, where Osentowski (along with architect and design partner Michael Thompson) has been designing and building revolutionary greenhouses that utilize passive and active solar technology via what they call the “climate battery”—a subterranean air-circulation system that takes the hot, moist, ambient air from the greenhouse during the day, stores it in the soil, and discharges it at night—that can offer tropical and Mediterranean climates at similarly high altitudes and in cold climates (and everywhere else). Osentowski’s greenhouse designs, which can range from the backyard homesteader to commercial greenhouses, are completely ecological and use a simple design that traps hot and cold air and regulates it for best possible use. The book is part case study of the amazing greenhouses at CRMPI and part how-to primer for anyone interested in a more integrated model for growing food and medicine in a greenhouse. With detailed design drawings, photos, and profiles of successful greenhouse projects on all scales, this inspirational manual will considerably change the conversation about greenhouse design. http://crmpi.org/about/the-forest-garden-greenhouse-by-jerome-osentowski/ Climate Battery Functions http://www.ecosystems-design.com/climate-batteries.html The magic of phase change from liquid to vapor and back again drives the Climate Battery™, or Subterranean Heating and Cooling System (SHCS). The system functions like a simple refrigeration system, moving heat from one place to another. But a typical 1200 square foot greenhouse needs only the equivalent equipment and running costs of a single large household refrigerator! By slowly circulating all of the hot, moist daytime air of the greenhouse down underground where it is always cooler than the greenhouse air, the Climate Battery forces the vapor to condense. By doing so, the solar heat as well as the chemical heat from the plant photosynthesis that was required to evaporate the moisture in the first place is forced into the soil. The "miracle" is that by inducing temperature change over the phase change barrier we have the potential to harness 5 times the energy normally the case if we simply tried to solar heat objects cluttering up your precious greenhouse floor space. And by inducing this "dewpoint" condition in the soil of the greenhouse, the plant roots are always being bathed in warm, moist conditions - the perfect balance for plants and solar greenhouses. The space is heated by the massive amount of radiating solar heat stored in the soil under the greenhouse, and with fans to circulate cooler nighttime greenhouse air through the tubing network, adding warmth and moisture back to the greenhouse.

17 Self Sustaining Homes
 
08:18
From The Dome Homes to The Solar House in Spain here are 17 Self Sustaining Homes. Would you live in any of these amazing homes? Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #8 - The Dome Homes The International Dome Home Co. made a building model that has multiple functions. They can be used as office buildings, as homes, small stores, almost anything you could think of. The shape is the magic key in its design. The dome shape allows the building to be structurally stable, saves energy due to better circulation, and the shape allows the outside to last longer since it dissipates the wind opposed to being gradually eroded by it. Who wouldn’t want to live in one of these, it’s like having your very own green hobbit hole! #7 - The Orchid House A name befitting of its shape, the Orchid house is located on a nature reserve in England. The 2400 square foot home was part of a green home building project called the Lower Mill Estate. The house, which is referred to as the most expensive green home ever sold, cost the new owner a whopping $14.2 million. The best feature in the house, a geothermal heating pump that claims to generate more energy than it uses. #6 - ZeroHouse ZeroHouse is a home that was designed to be completely self-sufficient. The house produces power through solar panels, has reservoirs to collect rainwater, and it even turns your waste into compost. Each one of these functions can be commanded through a smart device such as a phone or tablet. The makers of the ZeroHouse promise that this tricked out model is only just the beginning. You can snatch one up for yourself today for only $350,000. #5 - The Solar House in Spain A $7.7 million dollar villa is up for sale in Mallorca, Spain and the entire thing is powered by solar energy. The house is a whopping 6,450-square-feet and has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The inside has recently been remodeled, and the previous owners updated the appliances to stainless steel. It may not be as big as some of these other green homes we’ve seen on this list but if you have that kind of cash laying around we’re sure you could at least use it as a vacation getaway, the views alone are gorgeous. #4 - The Wyne Residence In British Columbia, Canada ski patroller Richard Wyne designed and crafted this zero-energy home called the Richard Wyne’s Whistler home. The 2,200 square-foot house cost a little over $1.2 million to create but the three-story home features fiberglass windows, and fiber-cement siding to decrease heat transfers. A 600-foot solar panel array on the roof supplies the house with all the energy the family could possibly use. If those features weren’t green enough for you just know that one of the building materials used in this design is a spray foam that is made from recycled plastics and vegetable oil. If that isn’t recycling and reusing I’m not sure what is. #3 - The Finca Bellavista Rainforest Village The treetop community was first designed to preserve the 300 acres of rainforest in Costa Rica. The collection of tree houses runs completely off of sustainable energy and offers a recycling center, a hydroelectric turbine system that gives power to the members of the community, a community garden, and even internet with wifi can be found at the bottom of the trees. What is the best way to get from tree to tree other than swinging on a vine like George of the jungle, zip lines, and this community is outfitted with a network of them dubbed the “Sky Trail.” #2 - The Yannell Residence The Yannell residence was designed for Michael Yannell by Farr Associates and Goldberg General Contracting. The single family home is 2,675-square-feet and is located in Chicago, Illinois. The home cost $1.6 million to build but seems worth it since it produces 40% more energy than it consumes. That being the case, the house scored higher than any other LEED-certified green housing project in history. #1 - A Home on Bird Island Bird Island is an urban renewal project being designed by Graft Lab Architects for the YTL Green Home Competition in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The home is made from sustainably-sourced silicone glass fabric which makes it a zero energy home. The unique flexibility allows the structure to bend and sway with the wind just like a treetop. Even though there was a total of six green home structures built on Bird Island for the competition we still think that the design of this model beats all.

A Self-Heating Greenhouse
 
01:53
A Ground to Air Heat Transfer (GAHT) system stores the excess heat of the greenhouse during the day in the soil underground. It allows the greenhouse to provide its own heating and cooling, essentially becoming a 'self-heating greenhouse.' The GAHT is similar to a Climate Battery and Passive Annual Heat Storage (PAHS).

What is best most efficient energy source for a heating system?
 
02:04
Hi. My name is John Marcelo owner of Air Rite Hvac, right here on beautiful Cape Cod Massachusetts. We have created a series of videos on heating ventilation and air conditioning to help you better understand and answer any question you might have about upgrade, installation, service and maintenance. Let's talk about equipment now. If you have electric baseboard heat you basically do not have equipment at all, you just using electricity to heat your baseboard it is easy and cheap to install, but you are spending a lot of electricity every month. If you have a forced hot water baseboard heating system, it may look like a electrical baseboard but the difference is it uses hot water instead of a electrical resistance. In this case you have a boiler in your basement that uses oil or natural gas to heat up that water and do the heating. This is a much more efficient way of heating, but not the best. Now, If you have warm air coming from floor grills, wall grills or ceiling grills that means you have duct work and you have a central forced warm air system. You also have a furnace that burns oil or gas and circulates that warm air throughout your house to do the heating. With the right upgrades this system can control not only temperature but also humidity and the air quality inside your home making this kind of system the best heating system Thanks for watching. I hope you liked this video If you need a free estimate on upgrade, installation, service or repair of heating and Air conditioning systems please visit us at AirRiteCapeCod.com or call us at 774 521 9371 Thank you

How to Install DIY Radiant Floor Heating
 
04:46
Use a specialized foam panel called Bekotec to lock the PEX tubing in place, cover it with a sand-and-cement mix, and tile away. (See below for a shopping list, tools, and steps.) Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Radiant floor heating is probably the best way to heat up any space. It's comfortable, quiet, and energy efficient. Although electric radiant heat is a popular choice for small projects, retiling a bathroom, say, hydronic, or water-based, radiant provides the ultimate in efficiency for bigger projects or an extensive remodel. If you want to DIY hydronic radiant, you can use a specially engineered foam panel from Schluter Systems called Bekotec. You lay the panels directly on the floor, press-fit PEX tubing into them, and add a thin layer of specially mixed concrete, five parts sand to one part portland cement. The panels provide a modest thermal break (R3), so you don't have to install an extra layer of insulation. Using this system adds less than 1 3/4 inches, including concrete, versus about 4 inches for the old-school method of tying tubing to wire mesh. That leaves you more headroom in basement applications. And the thin slab will heat up and cool down more quickly, allowing you to use lower water temperatures and save on your heating bill. Overall, it makes for a more responsive radiant slab. Steps for How to Install DIY Radiant Floor Heating: 1. Prep floor with leveling compound, if necessary. 2. Clean floor and install foam edging. 3. Lay first row of click-together panels. 4. Measure and trim the row's last panel to fit. 5. Cover the remaining area with panels. 6. Determine PEX spacing: 6-, 9-, or 12-inch rows. 7. Press-fit PEX between "studs" in panels. 8. Cover area with one continuous loop of PEX. 9. Leave extra tubing at boiler-room end for plumber to make connections. 10. Mix up a batch of "dry pack" concrete with a 5:1 ratio of sand to portland cement. 11. Spread and level over PEX, leaving a minimum of 5/16 inch of material above foam "studs." 12. Allow concrete to cure for a few days, then install your flooring of choice. Shopping List for How to Install DIY Radiant Floor Heating: - Bekotec-BRS foam edging - Bekotec foam panels - PEX tubing - Bekotec THERM-RH 75 PVC clamps - Sand and portland cement. Get enough for a 5:1 sand-to-cement ratio. Tools List for How to Install DIY Radiant Floor Heating: - 4-foot level - tape measure - breakaway knife - straightedge - pipe cutter - wheelbarrow or mixing tub for mixing concrete - shovel or hoe for mixing concrete Follow This Old House and Ask This Old House: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ThisOldHouse Twitter: https://twitter.com/thisoldhouse https://twitter.com/asktoh Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/thisoldhouse/ G+: https://plus.google.com/+thisoldhouse/posts Instagram: http://instagram.com/thisoldhouse Tumblr: http://thisoldhouse.tumblr.com/

Earth-cooled, shipping container underground CA home for 30K
 
14:14
As a kid Steve Rees played in caves and learned how the earth could cool. As an adult, he buried two shipping containers and created an off-grid retirement home for himself and his wife Shirley. After a few years of camping on their 10 acre plot in Northern California, they bought two shipping containers, hired an excavator and got to work. Doing most of the work themselves, their finished home cost them $30,000 (solar included). Their 640-square-foot space cost them less than $50 per square foot. Rees explains that while this is less than conventional construction costs, the savings only begin with construction. With a solar-powered well, a bit of propane and solar tubes for most of their light, they haven’t had any city water or electric bills since 2002. Winter temperatures in their home (even during 20 degrees outside) never fall below 62 degrees (an RV catalytic heater is sufficient for heating). Even when the temperature rises to 110 outside in the summer, their home has never risen above 82 degrees. When they asked the county about permitting they were told they “didn’t have a permit for burying containers”. They have been inspected since completing their home and they have a permitted septic system and a permitted well, just no permit for a single family dwelling.

GHG Reduction Geothermal Building Cooling System
 
02:08
: 'Geo thermal cooling systems' an innovation developed by GIBSS is an innovative technology that replaces the rejection of heat to ambient air in the conventional systems by the rejection of heat to the ground. The key innovation is the designing of a heat exchanger system that uses the earth temperature, which is much lower than the atmosphere temperature to reject the heat. If the implementation of this system in both Greenfield project and in retrofitting buildings could be accelerated, there is a potential to reduce GHG emissions by about 20 million tonnes by 2022.

Designer builds efficient off-grid Passive House in Colorado
 
20:14
Twenty years ago Andrew Michler bought a $60,000 solar shack in the Colorado mountains that “immediately fell apart” and inspired two decades of experiments in off-grid living. Today, he and his wife live in the reconfigured shack and he has turned a former shed on the property into an ultra low-consuming Passive House (Passivhaus). “Passive House is an international building standard that focuses on how to reduce energy consumption in building by about 90% and they did it by physics really it wasn’t developed by builders it was developed by physicists,” explains Michler. “Everything how a building interacts with its environment, the thermal dynamics of how heat transfers through materials, the way that energy is produced in the building, how solar gains come into the building or are avoided in a building so this entire building is basically designed in a spreadsheet.” The home is shaped in a wedge which helps with passive solar orientation and also helps avoid unnecessary surface area and heat loss. The wedge also contributes to an unconventional open plan interior which includes a hanging net bed.

DIY Geothermal Greenhouse Part 4: Earth Battery INSTALLATION
 
09:38
#113 After starting to build our DIY EMT electrical metal conduit (1.25") greenhouse two years ago, we are finally completing the project. We readily admit we are not experts at this (we are not engineers, greenhouse experts, or thermodynamic scientists), but a family doing our best to do it all ourselves and install based on all that we have read or watched on YouTube (Don't believe everything you see on the internet) to date and in line with our limited budget. Based on comments, we already know some things should be done differently. Hopefully, it still works well enough, even if not optimally. We plan to share the results regardless. In this video we are INSTALLING the passive solar geothermal earth battery system (or climate battery/thermal banking/ground to air heat transfer) after excavating 3,200 cubic feet of dirt from underneath the greenhouse with a Mahindra 3016 tractor. The idea is to use two high efficiency inline fans to pull hot air from the top of the greenhouse during the heat of the day down through a system of black corrugated drain pipes (600 linear feet) in the ground (300' buried at two feet and 300' at four feet) in order to heat the clay in the ground and return cooler air to the greenhouse. At night the process reverses, effectively warming the greenhouse for the cost of leaving a 150 watt light bulb on. In the summer, spring, and fall, this will help to keep the greenhouse cool(er) on hot days, and in the spring, fall, and winter it will help keep it warm(er) at night - we HOPE. Background on the project: Our farm homestead came with metal pipes in the ground from a former 16' x 50' hoop house. It also had water lines run from the farm well (which also needed to be restored) and a 60 amp electric service. In the first video we installed the 1.25" EMT conduit that serves as the frame. In future videos we'll frame the end walls, run electric, and get the plastic cover on in time for winter. Each rib or section of the greenhouse consists of three 10' pipes, no cutting. They are joined by stock EMT connectors. The two outer angles are 117.3. The ridge angle is 125.4. Sides are 6' tall. Just over 10' to the ridge. 16' wide. Ultimately, this will be a double wall plastic film greenhouse. +AMDG Music Epidemic Sound: "Rhythmic Guitar" Jason Shaw: "Landra's Dream" https://goo.gl/pi68XB

How To Heat A Greenhouse For FREE
 
26:27
This video details the two primary ways I heat my hugelkultur greenhouse using fire and the ambient heat from the ground. Watch the build video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwAUG8pB4Tk&t=1626s I make a rudimentary mass heater to heat the greenhouse with fire. The primitive furnace will be fired with waste wood from the construction of my home and the limbs that fall from the large oak tree in my yard. The idea is a riff off of Primitive Technology's floor-heating-fireplace is his tiled roof hut video on YouTube. Check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P73REgj-3UE The greenhouse will also be heated with ambient warmth from the ground. The 4-inch plastic pipe will snake through a hugelkultur bed outside the greenhouse to pick up heat from the ground which will rise up the inclined pipe into the greenhouse, while allowing cold air to flow out. It is a sort of poor man's geothermal. Once the furnace is fully tested and the greenhouse completely sealed, I plan to do some thermal camera tests on both the furnace and earth air mechanisms.

A single-wide foreclosure mobile home is naturally cheaper than a double-wide foreclosure, all other things considered equal. Modular Homes To Buy A mobile home is typically transported with a tractor-trailer, or a semi-truck. Single-wide trailers can be moved via private vehicle-- typically a big pickup truck-- but it isn't recommended due to the strain the weight of the home can put on a vehicle. Modular Homes To Be Moved The ÁBATON ÁPH80's grey fiber cement board facade gives it a unique look that distinguishes it from other modular homes, while Spanish Fir timber panels give the 27-square-meter interior a warm but modern feel. Around a peaceful, minimalist lifestyle, the residence also has an interesting ability-- the exterior can be folded up onto itself to secure the home for transport or when the owners are away for extended periods of time. Most banks and mortgage companies, including Quicken Loans, finance modular homes. When you buy a modular home, your home's value will usually increase over time-- making modular homes just as smart a financial option as traditional, site-built homes. Palm Harbor Homes in Buda, Texas, is proud to provide world-class modular homes, manufactured homes and mobile homes to our friends and neighbors in Buda, Kyle, Austin, San Marcos, Seguin, New Braunfels, Wimberly, Dripping Springs, Lockhart, Bastrop, Johnson City, Kerrville, Johnson City, Marble Falls, Fredericksburg, Gonzales, Hayes County, Travis County, Comal County Caldwell County, Bastrop County, Blanco County, Llano County, Burnet County, Gillespie County, Hye County, Guadalupe County, Kendall County, Mason County and the surrounding Hill Country.. Several modular home manufacturers in California offer homes in many styles and they can be purchased from stock designs or you can customize your home. Modular homes can be built from wood, steel using modular or panelized construction methods. Modular Homes To Rent At this time, you or your contractor can do any necessary finish work to the inside and outside of the home. This includes drive, walkways, NS landscaping. Many of these steps, including lot prep and foundation construction, will require inspections from the local building authority while construction is going on. If allowed by building codes and depending on the location, modular homes California can also be set on poles or piers. Again, whatever type of foundation you use it will need to comply with the local building codes, just as your modular home will need to. A list of the best modular homes is simply incomplete without a cool prefab crafted from used shipping containers. Casa Incubo in Costa Rica is arguably one of the best in this regard as it brings together eco-friendly design, frugality of resources and spacious interiors in a grand style. Doubling as both a home studio and a lavish residence, architect Maria Jose Trejos ensured that it offers all the comforts of a lovely modern home even while cutting back on construction cost and energy needs. Manufactured homes, sometimes referred to as mobile homes and trailers, are completely constructed in the factory and built on a permanent, fixed, steel chassis. Newer manufactured homes, however, don't always look like the double-wide trailer you might be picturing; they can be built with a variety of architectural styles, layouts and add-ons, like decks and porches. Why Build a Site Built when you can get the same home with the same or better materials at a fraction of the cost? We cut out the 6 to12 month labor costs on-site builders have to pay. If you're interested in a manufactured home, there are a few other ways to finance one. Looking for a home loan to build your house on-site?

Japan Is Sitting On A Massive Geothermal Reserve: VICE News Tonight
 
05:09
"Somewhere in Japan, a Japanese person is always in an onsen," onsen owner Shunji Shibatani told VICE News correspondent Isobel Yeung, referring to the country's traditional hot spring spas. "Onsen is an inseparable part of Japanese culture." Hot spring spas are cultural institutions that have been around for more than a thousand years. Today, there are more than 3,000 onsens across the country, which service 120 million people every year, or roughly the entire population of Japan. The owners are facing pressure to share the geothermal reserves that heat their spas to help power the country. After the Fukushima meltdown, the Japanese government faced significant pressure to shut down all of the country's nuclear reactors. Without nuclear power, the country gets almost 87% of its energy needs from expensive and polluting fossil fuels. "We have enough to power 20 big nuclear power plants," said professor Sachio Ehara, chairman of the Geothermal Information Institute. "Japan is a land full of volcanoes." With nearly 200 volcanoes, Japan has one of the largest geothermal reserves in the world. If this naturally occurring heat were to be harnessed and converted into power, it could generate 10% of Japan's energy needs right away. "Geothermal energy and onsens will never co-exist because geothermals would take these resources, " said Masao Oyama, chairman of the Japan Spa Association, a powerful collective of spa owners who lobby for the $26 billion industry. "This energy source will be gone in 30 or 50 years."

http://www.EcoPlusHome.com is an experimental house powered using alternative energy generation technologies. The house will be equipped with a geothermal heat pump, a solar thermal system and a photovoltaic system, which will all operate together to create a net zero house. The solar thermal system will generate heat for the hot water, which it will draw from free solar radiation. The geothermal heat pump will draw warmer air from the ground and the photovoltaic system will generate CO2-free electricity to power the house. In today's video Bryan and his wife Renée visit the Maple Leaf Homes in Fredericton New Brunswick for a site tour of their prefabricated homes manufacturing plant. They also get a sneak peak of their new EcoPlusHome. Bryan and his family will live in the house for a 12 month period as a living example showcasing their experiences on their blog at http://www.EcoPlusHome.com/blog using written content as well as video. The goal of the project is to see whether or not a normal everyday family can live self sustained for a year using alternative energy generation technologies to power their home. "We aim to show people that using alternative energy generation technologies like geothermal, solar thermal and photovoltaic is not some futuristic way to reduce or eliminate your power bill. This alternative energy generation technology is not only available but it's affordable for the average North American.
