With particular attention paid to the operational energy of the building, the Right Homes design excelled in thermal performance, energy efficiency and renewable energy generation and achieved a nine star natHERS rating. An eTool LCA was conducted on the design during April 2011 and we hope to work together into the future to further push the boundaries of what is possible in low carbon design…
The summarised results of this project:
|Total CO2e / Year / occupant (kg CO2e)||% Saved Against Benchmark||eTool|
|Materials||591||No Saving||No Medal|
|Assembly, Transport and Recurring Impact||364||No Saving||No Medal|
|Total Carbon||191||94 %|
- High thermal mass
- Very good Thermal Performance
- A 3kW solar system offsetting more than the expected energy requirement
