Zero Carbon Homes

Bill Dunster an innovative British Architect has devised a coherent system build approach to zero carbon, ultra-low energy homes.

In fact they will produce surplus power from their Solar Thermal hot water system, the Solar PV roof system, the passive zero energy air 'conditioning' system and the vertical axis low profile wind turbines just for starters.

Combined with very high levels of thermal insulation these homes can be built in the hottest or coldest climates. With a system approach these Zero Carbon homes could be built 'conveyor belt' style anywhere in the world with the right supply chain. A true 'House Factory'.

They can also be established with communication systems to allow small business and enterprise to flourish in basement or 'office' zones. Designed with communities in mind, Bill has created the human scale answer to effcient home building.

Talk to us about this type of approach. Its clean and its highly efficient.
