Abstract

Team ASUNM will present current results of the design of the SHADE house- Team's entry into the DOE Solar Decathlon 2013 competition. The work is concentrated on finding the right balance between passive building technologies and photovoltaics utilization, while at the same time incorporating home energy automation, controls, energy consumption monitoring and demand reduction techniques. The designed house incorporates state of the art thermal technologies - such as radiant cooling and thermal storage with phase-change materials. An important feature of the house is the SHADE canopy structure which not only serves as an area for photovoltaic power production, but provides shade - A much needed element in the arid southwest. Appliances and electronics inside the house are networked through a centralized home automation system which can be controlled through smart phone applications.
