This Week in Energy News – February 22, 2013

This week in Jetson Green Energy News, New York City is preparing for the next big storm and a California land rush could result in alternative energy providing the state with 100% of its power needs.

New York City East River Blueway Plan

Proposed: Four Miles of Manhattan’s East River to be Redeveloped with Storm Barrier

WXY Architecture + Urban Design, working with local officials and community groups, has developed the East River Blueway Plan to redevelop a stretch of Manhattan’s waterways to combat storm water surge, calling “for the creation of wetlands, parks, bicycle and pedestrian pathways and bridges, and the redevelopment of a disused beach under the Brooklyn Bridge.”

Toyota Sponsors 4,500 Trees for New York Restoration Project MillionTreesNYC

Founded in 1995 by Bette Midler, the New York Restoration Project (NYRP) has launched the MillionTreesNYC effort, a collaboration with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and other local organizations that has plans to plant one million trees in New York City by 2017. Toyota has already agreed to sponsor the planting of 4,500 trees towards this year’s annual goal of 15,000.

Renewable Energy Projects in California Could Meet 100% of the State’s Power Needs

A land rush on California’s farming region to plant solar farms adds up to 227 proposed solar projects that, combined with wind and other renewable energy sources, “generate enough electricity to meet 100% of California’s power needs on an average summer day,” the California Independent System Operator says.

Net-Zero Certification Program Launched by EarthCraft Virginia

Currently in a pilot stage, a two-art certification program being designed by EarthCraft Virginia will provide projects and homeowners with “Net-Zero Ready” and “Net-Zero Certified” status for energy-neutral and energy-positive residential buildings. The program is targeted to new construction in the southeastern United States.

National Research Council Report Advises Department of Defense to Continue LEED Efforts

A new report that has been compiled by the United States National Research Council, as requested by Congress, on “the use of energy-efficiency and sustainability standards for military construction,” has reviewed previous efforts by the U.S. Department of Defense to achieve LEED Silver or equivalent ratings in new construction and major renovations and gave them the “thumbs up.”

Renewable Energy Breakthrough Uses Geometry to Trap Solar Power

Researchers at Illinois’ Northwestern University have found a way to triple the period of time that light can be trapped within thin-film photovoltaic cells by “manipulating the arrangement of a polymer layer on an organic solar cell.”

Emerging Technologies Could Affect Building Industry Sustainability Efforts

A list of the most promising technology breakthroughs, released by the World Economic Forum’s Global Council on Emerging Technologies, which are expected to enable humans to deal with problems related to tackle population growth, resource demands, and other sustainability issues, included organic electronics, three-dimensional printing, self-heating materials, and remote sensing.

Public Demonstration of Tiny Houses in Washington D.C. Aims to Change Minds and Regulations

Boneyard Studios, founded by Brian Levy and Lee Pera, has created a community of tiny, movable houses as public demonstration of the trend in residential downsizing, hoping to “encourage changes in local laws to permit smaller, more affordable living options here and on vacant land across the city.”

Changing Business Models to Embrace Sustainability Equates to Increased Profitability

A study conducted by MIT Sloan Management Review and The Boston Consulting Group has revealed that “companies reporting profits from sustainability rose 23 percent in 2012, to 37 percent of the total” and that “that companies in developing countries change their business models as a result of sustainability at a far higher rate than those based in North America, which has the lowest rate of business-model innovation and the fewest business-model innovators.”

Sustainably Grown Timber Compliments Energy Efficiency of True North Log Homes

True North Log Homes

Built from from white pine heartwood timber that is sustainably grown in northern Ontario and Quebec (certified by the Forest Stewardship Council), this stunning log home comes to us from True North Log Homes.

While reminiscent of the rustic, breezy log home of the distant past, these structures are tech-savvy and utilize computerized machinery and careful preparation of timber to save labor time on-site.

Modular components allow for flexibility in design, as well as reducing the carbon footprint, and exterior construction that takes only a few days to complete. Joined together without screws or nail, the exterior shell is weather-tight. To make up for wood shrinkage, patented systems tighten the house to eliminate the need for chinking of holes.

Interiors can be retrofitted to increase sustainability with options including energy efficient windows, solar panels, spray foam insulation, soundproofing with sheep’s wool, and radiant floor heat.

President of True North Homes, Rob Wrightman, built this log cabin for his family, and frequently opens it up to show his customers the advantages of living in a log home.

True North Floor Plan

Roughly following the floor plan of the Citadel model, the 3,300 square feet includes a separate apartment and garage.

True North Floor Plan

Founded in 1986 and based out of Bracebridge, Ontario, True North Log Homes is known to be a manufacturer of some of North America’s best-engineered log homes. Canadian owned and operated, their innovative craftsmanship and technology is complimented by a commitment to the environmental needs and concerns of forested regions.

Solar Decathlon Team Partners With Habitat For Humanity And D.C. Government To Create New Model For Affordable, Green Housing

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) September 22, 2011

Today, Empowerhouse, a team of students from Parsons The New School for Design, Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy at The New School, and Stevens Institute of Technology, unveiled a new model for green-energy, affordable housing as part of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. Developed in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C. (DC Habitat), and the D.C. Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), the project marks the first time in the Solar Decathlon’s history that a team has partnered from the outset with civic and government agencies to create a house specifically for a local D.C. community. It will be the first house designed to Passive House standards?the leading international energy standard?in the District of Columbia.

?Going into this competition, we knew that we wanted to build a house that would be more than simply an exhibition piece and would make a lasting impact on a local community in Washington, D.C.,” said Joel Towers, executive dean of Parsons The New School for Design. “This project illustrates Parsons? commitment to sustainable design, and to confronting the complex problem of climate change that is so imperative for America and the world. We are also happy to be creating a new model for affordable housing that Habitat for Humanity can replicate globally.”

The Solar Decathlon is a biannual, international competition that challenges 19 collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses, which will be exhibited on the National Mall Sept. 23?Oct. 2, 2011. The Empowerhouse team has taken the competition beyond the Mall by designing and constructing a house for a specific site in the Deanwood neighborhood east of the Anacostia River in Washington, D.C. At the conclusion of the competition, it will be moved to Deanwood and expanded into a two-family home for local residents in collaboration with DC Habitat and the DHCD. Recently, DC Habitat selected one of the two families that will occupy the final house: Lakiya Culley, a Deanwood resident and single mother of three young children who works as a secretary for the U.S. Department of State.

?This project has given students an extraordinary opportunity to address first-hand one of the most pressing problems facing the world today ? affordable, sustainable housing supported by alternative energy,? said Dr. Michael Bruno, dean of the Charles V. Schaefer Jr., School of Engineering and Science at Stevens Institute of Technology. “The team has set itself apart by designing a house that is not only net energy neutral but also requires low energy consumption to operate ? a welcomed feature for the Washington, D.C. family that will be living there.?

Each unit of the two-family house is designed as a “net-zero” system (producing all of its energy needs), but will achieve peak efficiency when joined. The house adheres to Passive House principles, which have only just begun to be recognized in the United States, and will consume up to 90 percent less energy for heating and cooling than a typical home. Through the use of these principles, the team?s entry will have one of the smallest photovoltaic arrays of any in the competition, and its heating and cooling will require the same amount of power as it takes to operate a hair dryer.

Deanwood, a primarily working-class, African-American community, was selected as the site for the project due to its location in one of the greenest wards in Washington, D.C., and its history of community activism and self-sufficiency. Today, Deanwood and its surrounding neighborhoods are undergoing a powerful revitalization through economic development and environmental sustainability initiatives. Residents recently participated in the CarbonFree DC “Extreme Green Neighborhood Makeover,” which green retrofitted low- and moderate-income homes; in addition, the neighborhood is part of Groundwork Anacostia River DC, which brings environmental education and restoration projects to the communities along the river. Groundwork Anacostia will be hosting tours of the Deanwood revitalization efforts during the Decathlon, on September 24 and 25. For more information please visit

Building on the theme of self-sufficiency, the house is designed not only to provide its own energy needs, but the team also is working with Deanwood?s Lederer Community Youth Garden to provide plantings for a roof garden and vegetable window boxes, to provide families with the opportunity to grow their own food. The house has a comprehensive water strategy that includes a rainwater harvesting system that will capture and store rainwater not only from the site but also from surrounding homes for use in the garden, with the ultimate goal of minimizing the water that is drained into the public sewer system.

“Empowerhouse is an excellent demonstration of our commitment to creating sustainable, affordable housing for the residents of the District of Columbia. DHCD is pleased that Parsons, Milano, Stevens and DC Habitat are bringing this innovative and forward-thinking project to the District,” said DHCD Director John E. Hall. “This project provides a unique opportunity for the city and for the Deanwood community, and we expect that it will set a precedent for future Passive Houses in the nation’s capital and across the country.”

The community will play a direct role in building the house, in keeping with the Habitat for Humanity mission, and the house features an innovative panelization system that will make it easy for construction by volunteers, as well as many off-the-shelf components that are available in home improvement stores. “Energy efficient design results in healthier, more economically viable housing for the low-income families we serve,” said Kent Adcock, President & CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C. “When design ingredients like those of the Empowerhouse reduce energy consumption by up to 90 percent, it’s a substantial savings to homeowners, possibly the difference between having access to childcare or healthcare, or even advancing their education.”

In developing the project, the Empowerhouse team hosted design charrettes with community members, and conducted extensive research on the neighborhood, including its rich architectural history and sustainable practices and resources. In addition to creating new residences, the team has extended the project by leading workshops to educate residents on how to make their homes more sustainable?from retrofitting solar panels to community gardening. The team is also creating a new learning garden in Deanwood, working with Groundwork Anacostia and local volunteers, and will be hosting volunteer sessions on September 24 and 25. For more information, visit

?The team has taken a whole-life approach that reflects the students? wide range of expertise,? said Neil Grabois, dean of the Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy at The New School. ?Sustainability stands at the intersection of a number of fields. From beginning to end, Empowerhouse has brought together over 200 graduate and undergraduate students with backgrounds in management, urban policy, engineering, and design?from architecture to fashion design, product design, communication design, and design and technology?taking a fully interdisciplinary embrace of this challenge.?
