White House Conference on Global Climate Change  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

President Clinton has directed the White House office on Environmental Policy to coordinate an interagency process to develop a plan to fulfill the commitment he made in his Earth Day address on April 21, 1993. This plan will become the cornerstone of the Climate Change Plan that will be completed shortly after the Rio Accord enters into force. The Office on Environmental Policy established the Interagency Climate Change Mitigation Group to draw on the expertise of federal agencies including the National Economic Council; the Council of Economic Advisors; the Office of Science and Technology Policy; the Office of Management and Budget; the National Security Council; the Domestic Policy Council; the Environmental Protection Agency; and the Departments of Energy, Transportation, Agriculture, Interior, Treasury, Commerce, and State. Working groups have been established to examine six key policy areas: energy demand, energy supply, joint implementation, methane and other gases, sinks, and transportation. The purpose of the White House Conference on Global Climate Change was to ``tap the real-world experiences`` of diverse participants and seek ideas and information for meeting the President`s goals. During the opening session, senior administration officials defined the challenge ahead and encouraged open and frank conversation about the best possible ways to meet it.

Solar energy, conservation, and rental housing  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Renters must pay the majority of energy costs either directly or in their rents. They have limited financial and legal abilities to make improvements necessary to increase substantially the energy efficiency of rental housing. This report discusses the problem of how to increase investments in energy conservation and solar energy devices for rental housing, which constitutes over one-third of US housing. As background, this report characterizes the rental-housing market, including owners' decision-making criteria. Federal, state, and local policies that affect energy-related investments in rental housing are described. Programs are divided into five major categories: (1) programs for tenants, (2) financial incentives for owners, (3) leasing of solar energy equipment, (4) mediation between tenants and landlords, and (5) regulation. The report concludes that energy and conservation programs aimed at the residential sector must disaggregate owner-occupied housing from rental housing for maximum effect. No one program is advocated since local rental-housing markets differ substantially. For improvements greater than no-cost or low-cost items, programs must be directed at rental-housing owners and not only at tenants.

NCSU solar energy and conservation house. Final report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A passive solar energy house has been built adjacent to the NCSU McKimmon Continuing Education Center. The house contains a two-story embedded sunspace, two Trombe walls, active solar hot water heating, thermal storage in a rock filled ceiling/floor, and numerous research treatments, and energy conservation features. (See attached photo brochure; Appendix 1). The house is completely decorated and furnished in an attractive manner and the exterior architecture is traditional and has broad consumer appeal. It is also thoroughly instrumented to monitor performance. The house is open to the public on weekends and numerous people come to visit on their own initiative and others take advantage of the close proximity to McKimmon while there attending conferences. The house will influence and motivate large numbers of people to consider solar and energy conservation facets in their homes and will provide data to substantiate performance to prospective home buyers and meaningful data on design and construction for builders.

Cost performance comparisons of equivalent conventional and 100% solar houses  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The sixth design of ALL SOLAR HOUSE and the equivalent conventional house had detailed performance and item by item cost checks made. Surprisingly the active solar comes out to lower cost than the passive. A further suprise, the passive comes out as more efficient than the active. The conventional house has slightly more uniform temperature and has comparable cost. All these designs are thermostated to the 20+/sup 0/C (70+/sup 0/F) range. All have the same volumetric efficiency. The line of descent for ALL SOLAR HOUSE is: Experimental Manor, All glass house, Peterson's, Binghamton, Loraine, and now Keene. The last on speculation for the low cost market as a prototype for wide spread use. Several of the specially engineered components have been used that they are offered commercially.

If you ask most travelers, they would say Hawaii really is a very sunny chain of islands. Many Americans have enjoyed a relaxing day on the state's warm beaches or have been awe-inspired by its fascinating volcanoes. But that wealth of sunshine powers more than just the tourism economy - it's creating green jobs and clean, renewable solar energy.

Total solar house description and performance  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The initial attempt to apply the Total Solar concept to a residence in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, area is described. A very large storage capacity has made it possible to use only solar energy for meeting the heating, cooling and hot water needs for the entire year, with a parasitic power penalty of about 3500 kWh. Winter temperatures were maintained at 68/sup 0/F with 60/sup 0/F night setback, summer at 76/sup 0/F. Occupant intervention was negligible and passive overheat was minimized. The extra cost for the system, approximately $30,000 is readily amortized by the savings in purchased energy.

Preliminary study for solar combisystem potential in Canadian houses  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Solar combisystems that are capable of providing space heating and cooling as well as domestic hot water heating present a promising alternative to conventional systems to achieve net zero energy status in residential buildings. To determine whether or not the performance of such systems would be suitable in the northerly Canadian context, a preliminary study was conducted to evaluate the thermal performance of a solar combisystem with space heating, cooling, domestic hot water heating and thermal storage capability for houses in the four climate regions of Canada (Atlantic, Central, Prairies and Pacific) based on simulations conducted using models developed within the TRNSYS 17.1 energy simulation software. For days without sufficient sunshine, auxiliary heating and cooling systems are included. The operation of the solar combisystem and the auxiliary systems is controlled using a realistic control algorithm. Sensitivity analysis is conducted to determine effects of solar collector area and storage capacity on solar combisystem performance. The results show that solar combisystems can provide a substantial fraction of the space heating, cooling and domestic hot water heating energy requirement of a simple house in all major climatic regions of Canada. As to be expected, climatic conditions have an important impact on solar combisystem performance. The results also show that increasing solar collector area enhances solar fraction, and the solar fraction curve peaks at a specific storage capacity. Based on the favorable results found in this study, it is clear that further and more detailed studies are warranted on solar combisystem applications in Canada. The next step in this work will be a much more detailed evaluation using the Canadian Hybrid Residential Energy End-use and Emissions Model.

Massachusetts multi-family passive solar housing program  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A unique combination of Federal, State, and Local resources and initiative is producing energy-efficient/passive solar elderly housing in Massachusetts. The program, developed at and managed by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy Resources, is using $2.5 million of state energy bonding authority to finance incremental costs of energy conservation and passive solar features in state-financed local housing projects. The design and technical assistance, incremental cost estimating, and public outreach portions of the program have been made possible under a grant from the US Department of Energy (through NESEC) as part of the Solar Cities Program. The program includes both new projects and retrofits, with building types ranging from mid-rise, high density urban structures to two-story suburban townhouses. Seventeen project, including over 400 passive solar units, are in working drawings or out to bid and more are in concept development. It is anticipated that present funding will ultimately permit construction of as many as 800 passive solar heated apartments. On the average, these projects will use only 25% of the energy required to heat a similar building of conventional design.

Passive solar strategies as a logic for improved architectural design: Two prototypes for modular housing  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper presents a project in which two passive solar housing prototypes were developed for mass production as modular housing. The prototypes have been built and are currently being marketed and thermally monitored. The project received support from the U.S. DOE under its Passive Solar Manufactured Buildings Program. The goal of this project was to develop a prototype which incorporated passive solar technologies into modular housing. Because modular housing is an industrialized product, this incorporation involved relating to a construction process as well as deriving the design of a new product. This paper addresses the issues of modular housing production that impact energy efficiency, passive solar design, and architectural quality. The product's design evolution is described, with emphasis upon how solutions for the prototype(s) were derived in response to factory construction processes, cost, existing and potential markets and the extended goal to improve both energy efficiency and architectural design while introducing passive solar strategies.

Annual measured performance of building-integrated solar energy systems in demonstration low-energy solar house  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents the details of the output and efficiency of the annual performance of building-integrated solar energy systems for a solar water heating system and solar photovoltaic (PV) modules of a demonstration near-zero-energy solar house that was constructed on the campus of the Korea Institute of Energy Research. The thermal systems installed in the house were a solar water heating system with building-integrated solar collectors for water heating and for part of the space heating and a ground-coupled heat pump for space cooling and part of the space heating. Solar PV modules were installed on the roof of the house. The performance of these systems was monitored for more than 1 yr. The annual efficiencies of the building's integrated solar collectors and solar PV were 22.8% and 10.9% respectively. The total annual solar fraction of the solar heating system was 69.7% with an annual solar heat production of 248?kW h/m2. This paper also focuses on the efficiency of the house's solar storage based upon intentionally varied drainage of hot water from the storage tank. It was found that the thermal loss from the solar storage tank has a strong functional relationship with the thermal demand of the solar storage tank per unit volume. For example when the hot water consumption was reduced by half during September the thermal loss increased to more than 70% which would otherwise have been around 30%.

Bottom line: comments on incremental costs in the Massachusetts multi-family passive solar housing program  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

As part of its ongoing Passive Solar Multifamily Housing Program, the Office of Energy Resources performs detailed in-house estimates of incremental passive solar and conservation costs. These estimates are part of an iterative design reviewing process and are used to minimize costs while assuring good system performance. The Office of Energy Resources will finance approved energy conservation and passive solar features in over 20 elderly housing projects presently in various stages of design and construction. Experience gained refining cost-effective designs of these projects is discussed. The discussion includes: isolating and analyzing incremental costs, accruing credits for downsized heating systems, and accounting for soft variables such as additional space and architectural amenity. Cost implications of system type, building scale and geometry, and construction details are outlined, and incremental costs for several specific designs are presented in detail. Much of this information should be applicable to design for single-family and commercial buildings, as well as multi-family housing.

Passive solar multi-family housing: design, development, finance and market strategies  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A basis is provided for problem definition of energy and multi-family housing. A comprehensive look at the costs of energy is taken, not just in the cost per Btu, but also in terms of the marginal or replacement cost of energy, the social and environmental costs of consuming imported energy, and at the projected future costs and availability of non-renewable energy supplies. Some reasons are identified why a developer should consider an energy efficient passive solar project, and the roles that each project team should play to achieve the successful project are described. The concepts necessary to understand the physics and design of passive solar systems are introduced. The unique characteristics of multiple housing are covered and basic ideas for the application of solar concepts are provided. Site selection and planning, design considerations for planning the building, design considerations for individual unit designs, and ways to integrate energy efficient and passive solar components in townhouses and apartments are covered. Techniques are covered for energy conscious and solar design and construction, with emphasis on supplying the tools for making decisions at the appropriate times in the design process. Also covered are: the profit motive to develop housing; state and federal programs, present or planned, the encourage passive solar and energy efficient construction; Solar and Conservation Banks; state and federal tax credits; and financial analysis and marketing strategies. The Massachusetts Passive Multi-Family Program is described. Twelve examples of passive solar multifamily projects from around the country are also described. (LEW)

Passive solar is cost-effective: observations on financing conservation and passive solar features in public sector housing  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The cost-effectiveness of passive solar systems depends not only on costs and performance but on future fuel prices, the value of architectural amenities, and the financial position of the investor. Because the state is unstable, un-taxed, and has access to low-cost capital, it can afford to make energy-saving/passive solar investments 2 to 3 times those typical in the private sector. Experience with 17 state-financed passive solar housing projects presently in varying stages of design and construction indicates that passive solar systems in multi-family housing can be highly cost-effective. Investments to data are predicted to average $422/GJ/yr. ($445/MMBtu/yr) saved, while life-cycle cost estimates indicate that expenditures which average up to $650 ($700) are justified. The major barrier to passive solar in multi-family housing appears to be a lack of knowledge, both within the government and the architectural profession, about economical passive solar design opportunities.

Computer aided solar house design made of ``Guadua`` in Bogota, Colombia  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Bogota, Colombia, is the third highest capital in South America, its location near the equator assures high altitudes over the horizon and almost 5 hours of daily mean sunshine. Since 1981, efforts for using natural energy instead of nonrenewable fuel have been targeted to Colombia`s residential construction industry. This paper focuses on a computer aided design process for passive solar low-income row housing in Bogota. Thermal comfort for this tropical climate has been achieved through employing ``Guadua,`` a strong bamboo specie,as an alternative wall system to the traditional brick, adobe, or concrete structures. Through computer analysis, several energy conservation and passive solar strategies have been optimized for a case study row housing type common to the region. The load savings compared to a 6 inch CMU house totaled 72%, while the operating cost has been reduced by 71%. Furthermore, this lightweight and inexpensive ``Guadua`` material has reduced the construction cost by 30%.

The goal of this project is to create widespread production and sales of energy conserving passive solar heated and cooled manufactured homes. All completed buildings will be built in a factory utilizing wood construction and integrating applied and accepted on-site construction techniques. The Usry design team has evaluated many processes of construction and has determined that environmentally controlled manufactured systems are much more cost efficient as well as quality coordinated. Utilizing certain preliminary market assessments in the Richmond metropolitan area, it was determined that a typical home consisting of 1000 to 1600 square feet would be most favorable.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The performance of three preliminary designs of passive solar heating systems for two basic house models is first briefly discussed. Two final designs are treated in detail - an attached greenhouse design and a superinsulated/microload house. The report deals with a description of the designs, their thermal performance and cost, and a critical comparison of the two designs. It is concluded that under mild climate and low mass construction conditions, a superinsulated microload building may be thermally and cost effectively more efficient than other forms of passive building techniques.

Barriers and incentives to the adoption of innovative, energy-efficient housing: Passive and active solar and earth-sheltered  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this study was to determine intermediaries perceptions of barriers and incentives to innovative, energy-efficient housing in Iowa. Data were collected by two surveys. The questionnaire for the first survey collected data from 102 communities. The second questionnaire surveyed housing intermediaries drawn from the 102 communities included in the first survey. The sample consisted of 481 builders, building inspectors, realtors, lenders, and solar suppliers. Intermediary groups differed in their perceptions of barriers and incentives to innovative, energy-efficient housing. Significant differences were found among the intermediaries for whether state-mandated solar standards would reduce the risk of inspection of solar-energy houses and whether risky resale potential acts as a barrier to building solar energy housing. The major barriers were the first costs associated with building active solar and earth-sheltered housing and the lack of skills among subcontractors to build these types. There was not significant relationship between rate of adoption among communities and their location in the state. There was, however, a significant relationship between category of building official and rate of adoption among communities.

Integration of Sustainability in Net-zero House: Experiences in Solar Decathlon China  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The integration design between architecture, technology and engineering is an important issue of sustainable building. Facing the problems such as high city density, high performance limitation, construction methods and financial problems, the integration of sustainability issues into a regular residential building is a challenge, especially in China. This article's objective is to set up a framework integrating sustainable strategies to the design and the construction of a net-zero house based on the particular living situation in China. O-house is one of the entries of the solar decathlon competition in 2013, which was designed as a net-zero house for China residential market. By analyzing existing problems and potential opportunities during the market oriented survey, a possible solution by combining an appropriate building mode, solar power technologies and energy saving methods which may suit Chinese residential market is presented in this paper. The case shows specific strategies and steps of integration design, including building composition mode, architecture and material, combination of building and renewable energy technologies, integration of building and its equipment systems and integrated indoor furniture design etc. This experimental design and construction process presents us with a net-zero energy consumption and reasonable construction consumption (e.g. costs, labour, and time). In conclusion, this paper illustrates the scope of usage for integrate sustainable residential building design, and also points out its advantages and limitations that may come out in future.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ABSTRACT Earth sheltered, passive solar and conventional highly-insulated houses have large variations in their need for solar exposure to maintain a high energy efficiency. They also have inherent implications for the minimum spacing of units under various assumed site conditions. The effect of full solar exposure on maximum densities of prototypical earth sheltered and solar developments is presented and compared to non-solar conventional construction. The effect of ground slope angles on the densities attainable is also included in the discussion.

Optical properties across the solar spectrum and indoor thermal performance of cool white coatings for building energy efficiency  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Two single-layer, waterborne cool white coatings for building envelopes were recently developed for use in improving building energy efficiency. After the coatings were manufactured, their optical properties over the solar spectrum and their indoor temperature reduction effect were systematically investigated using appropriate tools, and the advantages/disadvantages of single layer cool white coatings over multilayer ones were discussed in detail. The preparation process enables these two coatings to integrate multiple cooling principles and thereby exhibit high solar heat reflectance and good indoor temperature reduction. The predicted industrial limit of solar heat reflectance for practical reflective cool white coatings is 0.91. Use of cool white coatings significantly reduces radiant heat flux. The temperature reduction effects evaluated by a self-developed device cannot describe adequately the indoor cooling performance of cool coatings.

Impact of passive solar energy utilization on multi-story apartment houses in hot dry climates  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Objectives were to study the thermal behavior of a multi-story, prismatic building and to analyze the impact of various building parameters on this behavior. The building used is representative of residential buildings encountered in hot, dry parts of the world and conforms to the design and construction practices that prevail in such areas. A computer simulation model (BLAST) is employed to describe the building's thermal behavior on an hour-by-hour basis. The model is used to assess the impact of various passive building parameters on the temperature of each interior zone. The simulation is divided into three phases. The first entails simulating the housing prototype as it exists. The second is a parametric evaluation of individual building features; it includes studying the contribution of each of the building parameters/strategies under consideration. The third phase of the investigation involves combinations of features instead of individual features for the study of their thermal interaction. Data analysis indicates that natural ventilation and thermal mass are most critical in determining the interior thermal environment of a building in the hot, dry zone. Included in the study is a historical review of passive solar applications in buildings and a thorough discussion of the comfort requirements in hot, dry region. Findings of the study are outlined, and recommendations for future research are presented.

Infiltration and indoor air quality in a sample of passive-solar and super-insulated houses  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Infiltration rates and indoor air quality were measured in 16 solar and super insulated houses in California. In this area careful construction can, at reasonable cost, reduce infiltration to 0.2 to 0.5 air changes per hour (40 to 100 ft/sup 3//min). To evaluate possible indoor air quality problems at these low infiltration rates, levels of three pollutants were monitored in early 1982 during weather cold enough to encourage occupants to keep their windows closed. NO/sub 2/, formaldehyde, and radon were measured using inexpensive, passive monitors. The blower door infiltration measurements are described and relationships between relevant building and occupant characteristics and observed levels of pollutants are discussed. These levels are also compared to current standards; implications for housing design and construction techniques are discussed, and further research needs are suggested.

Modeling, design and thermal performance of a BIPV/T system thermally coupled with a ventilated concrete slab in a low energy solar house: Part 1, BIPV/T system and house energy concept  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper is the first of two papers that describe the modeling, design, and performance assessment based on monitored data of a building-integrated photovoltaic-thermal (BIPV/T) system thermally coupled with a ventilated concrete slab (VCS) in a prefabricated, two-storey detached, low energy solar house. This house, with a design goal of near net-zero annual energy consumption, was constructed in 2007 in Eastman, Quebec, Canada - a cold climate area. Several novel solar technologies are integrated into the house and with passive solar design to reach this goal. An air-based open-loop BIPV/T system produces electricity and collects heat simultaneously. Building-integrated thermal mass is utilized both in passive and active forms. Distributed thermal mass in the direct gain area and relatively large south facing triple-glazed windows (about 9% of floor area) are employed to collect and store passive solar gains. An active thermal energy storage system (TES) stores part of the collected thermal energy from the BIPV/T system, thus reducing the energy consumption of the house ground source heat pump heating system. This paper focuses on the BIPV/T system and the integrated energy concept of the house. Monitored data indicate that the BIPV/T system has a typical efficiency of about 20% for thermal energy collection, and the annual space heating energy consumption of the house is about 5% of the national average. A thermal model of the BIPV/T system suitable for preliminary design and control of the airflow is developed and verified with monitored data. (author)

Selling the solar home '80: market findings for the housing industry  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This is the second report on marketing experiences in the HUD residential solar heating and cooling demonstration program, which supports many different types of solar projects and collects data on their performance and on the experiences of builders in marketing these projects. The study of market factors affecting the acceptance and sale of solar homes is intended to assist and encourage builders interested in including solar energy in future projects. The data are based on a small sample of HUD projects awarded in three cycles between January 1976 and May 1977. The market data collection process involved field visits to each site and comprehensive interviews with key actors in the construction and marketing process; with local government officials in the building code department, tax assessor's office, and zoning agency; and with the purchasers of the solar homes. For comparison purposes, interviews were also held with builders and buyers of conventional homes. Followup interviews were held with the purchasers of the solar homes at 6 - month intervals to determine levels of satisfaction, obtain information on energy use and utility costs, and identify attitudes toward solar energy. Questions were also asked about the operation, performance and maintenance of the solar systems. The solar outlook is seen as encouraging, with three - quarters of builders willing to construct additional solar homes outside the HUD program. The trend has shifted from active to passive solar design. Further study is recommended to determine frequency and cost of repairs and to document energy savings and relate these savings to operating expenses and the initial system cost. Illustrations and tabular data are provided.

SPITZER OBSERVATIONS OF THE OLDEST WHITE DWARFS IN THE SOLAR NEIGHBORHOOD  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We present Spitzer 5-15 {mu}m spectroscopy of one cool white dwarf and 3.6-8 {mu}m photometry of 51 cool white dwarfs with T {sub eff} < 6000 K. The majority of our targets have accurate BVRIJHK photometry and trigonometric parallax measurements available, which enables us to perform a detailed model atmosphere analysis using their optical, near- and mid-infrared photometry with state-of-the-art model atmospheres. We demonstrate that the optical and infrared spectral energy distributions of cool white dwarfs are well reproduced by our grid of models. Our best-fit models are consistent with the observations within 5% in all filters except the IRAC 8 {mu}m band, which has the lowest signal-to-noise ratio photometry. Excluding the ultracool white dwarfs, none of the stars in our sample show significant mid-infrared flux deficits or excesses. The nondetection of mid-infrared excess flux around our {approx}2-9 Gyr old targets constrain the fraction of cool white dwarfs with warm debris disks to 0.8{sup +1.5} {sub -0.8} %.

EMISSION HEIGHT AND TEMPERATURE DISTRIBUTION OF WHITE-LIGHT EMISSION OBSERVED BY HINODE/SOT FROM THE 2012 JANUARY 27 X-CLASS SOLAR FLARE  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

White-light emissions were observed from an X1.7 class solar flare on 2012 January 27, using three continuum bands (red, green, and blue) of the Solar Optical Telescope on board the Hinode satellite. This event occurred near the solar limb, and so differences in the locations of the various emissions are consistent with differences in heights above the photosphere of the various emission sources. Under this interpretation, our observations are consistent with the white-light emissions occurring at the lowest levels of where the Ca II H emission occurs. Moreover, the centers of the source regions of the red, green, and blue wavelengths of the white-light emissions are significantly displaced from each other, suggesting that those respective emissions are emanating from progressively lower heights in the solar atmosphere. The temperature distribution was also calculated from the white-light data, and we found the lower-layer emission to have a higher temperature. This indicates that high-energy particles penetrated down to near the photosphere, and deposited heat into the ambient lower layers of the atmosphere.

The accretion of solar material onto white dwarfs: No mixing with core material implies that the mass of the white dwarf is increasing  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) are close binary star systems with one component a white dwarf (WD) and the other a larger cooler star that fills its Roche Lobe. The cooler star is losing mass through the inner Lagrangian point of the binary and some unknown fraction of this material is accreted by the WD. One consequence of the WDs accreting material, is the possibility that they are growing in mass and will eventually reach the Chandrasekhar Limit. This evolution could result in a Supernova Ia (SN Ia) explosion and is designated the Single Degenerate Progenitor (SD) scenario. This paper is concerned with the SD scenario for SN Ia progenitors. One problem with the single degenerate scenario is that it is generally assumed that the accreting material mixes with WD core material at some time during the accretion phase of evolution and, since the typical WD has a carbon-oxygen CO core, the mixing results in large amounts of carbon and oxygen being brought up into the accreted layers. The presence of enriched carbon causes enhanced nuclear fusion and a Classical Nova explosion. Both observations and theoretical studies of these explosions imply that more mass is ejected than is accreted. Thus, the WD in a Classical Nova system is losing mass and cannot be a SN Ia progenitor. However, the composition in the nuclear burning region is important and, in new calculations reported here, the consequences to the WD of no mixing of accreted material with core material have been investigated so that the material involved in the explosion has only a Solar composition. WDs with a large range in initial masses and mass accretion rates have been evolved. I find that once sufficient material has been accreted, nuclear burning occurs in all evolutionary sequences and continues until a thermonuclear runaway (TNR) occurs and the WD either ejects a small amount of material or its radius grows to about 10{sup 12} cm and the evolution is ended. In all cases where mass ejection occurs, the mass of the ejecta is far less than the mass of the accreted material. Therefore, all the WDs are growing in mass. It is also found that the accretion time to explosion can be sufficiently short for a 1.0M{sub ?} WD that recurrent novae can occur on a low mass WD. This mass is lower than typically assumed for the WDs in recurrent nova systems. Finally, the predicted surface temperatures when the WD is near the peak of the explosion imply that only the most massive WDs will be significant X-ray emitters at this time.

Kepler White Paper: Asteroseismology of Solar-Like Oscillators in a 2-Wheel Mission  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We comment on the potential for continuing asteroseismology of solar-type and red-giant stars in a 2-wheel Kepler Mission. Our main conclusion is that by targeting stars in the ecliptic it should be possible to perform high-quality asteroseismology, as long as favorable scenarios for 2-wheel pointing performance are met. Targeting the ecliptic would potentially facilitate unique science that was not possible in the nominal Mission, notably from the study of clusters that are significantly brighter than those in the Kepler field. Our conclusions are based on predictions of 2-wheel observations made by a space photometry simulator, with information provided by the Kepler Project used as input to describe the degraded pointing scenarios. We find that elevated levels of frequency-dependent noise, consistent with the above scenarios, would have a significant negative impact on our ability to continue asteroseismic studies of solar-like oscillators in the Kepler field. However, the situation may be much more optimi...

VISITORS FROM THE HALO: 11 Gyr OLD WHITE DWARFS IN THE SOLAR NEIGHBORHOOD  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We report the discovery of three nearby old halo white dwarf (WD) candidates in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), including two stars in a common proper motion binary system. These candidates are selected from our 2800deg{sup 2} proper motion survey on the Bok and U.S. Naval Observatory Flagstaff Station 1.3 m telescopes, and they display proper motions of 0.''4-0.''5 yr{sup -1}. Follow-up MMT spectroscopy and near-infrared photometry demonstrate that all three objects are hydrogen-dominated atmosphere WDs with T {sub eff} {approx} 3700-4100 K. For average mass WDs, these temperature estimates correspond to cooling ages of 9-10 Gyr, distances of 70-80 pc, and tangential velocities of 140-200 km s{sup -1}. Based on the UVW space velocities, we conclude that they most likely belong to the halo. Furthermore, the combined main-sequence and WD cooling ages are 10-11 Gyr. Along with SDSS J1102+4113, they are the oldest field WDs currently known. These three stars represent only a small fraction of the halo WD candidates in our proper motion survey, and they demonstrate that deep imaging surveys like the Pan-STARRS and Large Synoptic Survey Telescope should find many old thick disk and halo WDs that can be used to constrain the age of the Galactic thick disk and halo.

We analyze optical spectra of a two-ribbon, long duration C1.1 flare that occurred on 18 Aug 2011 within AR 11271 (SOL2011-08-18T15:15). The impulsive phase of the flare was observed with a comprehensive set of space-borne and ground-based instruments, which provide a range of unique diagnostics of the lower flaring atmosphere. Here we report the detection of enhanced continuum emission, observed in low-resolution spectra from 3600 \\AA\\ to 4550 \\AA\\ acquired with the Horizontal Spectrograph at the Dunn Solar Telescope. A small, $\\le$0''.5 ($10^{15}$ cm$^2$) penumbral/umbral kernel brightens repeatedly in the optical continuum and chromospheric emission lines, similar to the temporal characteristics of the hard X-ray variation as detected by the Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) on the Fermi spacecraft. Radiative-hydrodynamic flare models that employ a nonthermal electron beam energy flux high enough to produce the optical contrast in our flare spectra would predict a large Balmer jump in emission, indicative of h...

Large Solar Assisted Heat Pump Systems in Collective Housing: In-situ Monitoring Results for Summer Season  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This article presents the behavior of an existing system combining solar collectors and heat pumps at large scale (10’000 living m2, more than 1’000 m2 solar collectors) for space heating and domestic hot water production, focusing on summer period. Ongoing detailed monitoring enables to measure its energy performance. The monitoring results for 2012 show a system SPF of 2.9 (2.6 in winter and 4.4 in summer). The direct solar fraction in summer is lower than 50%, which is low considering the oversizing of the solar collector area for domestic hot water production. The high domestic hot water demand (?50 kWh/m2/yr whereas the usual value is around 20) can partly explain this low value, but other factors should also be considered. The results presented in this article are part of a research project aiming to assess the relevance of the concept of coupling solar thermal and heat pumps in various types of building (especially existing buildings with low efficient thermal envelope).

Rapid sintering of TiO{sub 2} photoelectrodes using intense pulsed white light for flexible dye-sensitized solar cells  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Intense pulsed white light (IPWL) sintering was carried out at room temperature, which is suitable dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) fabrication process on plastic substrates for the mass production. Five seconds irradiation of IPWL on TiO{sub 2} electrode significantly improves the photocurrent density and power conversion efficiency of DSSCs by more than 110% and 115%, respectively, compared to the DSSCs without IPWL treatment. These improvements were mainly attributed to the enhanced interconnection between the TiO{sub 2} nanoparticles induced by IPWL illumination, which is confirmed by the impedance spectra analysis.

Principles of Passive House

Principles of Passive House Principles of Passive House Speaker(s): Wolfgang Feist Date: November 1, 2010 - 12:00pm Location: 90-4133 Seminar Host/Point of Contact: Alan Meier The Passive House ("Passivhaus") concept is a rigorous, voluntary energy performance standard for buildings that reduces heating requirements by up to 90% and overall energy use by up to 80% over standard construction. Developed in Germany in the early 1990s and drawing on Super-insulated and Passive Solar ideas from North America and "Low Energy" European building standards, the concept of a building that could be practically constructed to maintain a comfortable interior climate without conventional heating or cooling systems was devised, tested and proven. The Passive House remains comfortable without large "active"

The Accretion of Solar Material onto White Dwarfs: No Mixing with Core Material Implies that the Mass of the White Dwarf is Increasing  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) are close binary star systems with one component an accreting white dwarf (WD) and the other a larger cooler star that fills its Roche Lobe. One consequence of the WDs accreting material, is the possibility that they are growing in mass and will eventually reach the Chandrasekhar Limit. This evolution could result in a Supernova Ia (SN Ia) explosion and is designated the Single Degenerate Progenitor (SD) scenario. One problem with the single degenerate scenario is that it is generally assumed that the accreting material mixes with WD core material at some time during the accretion phase of evolution and, since the typical WD has a carbon-oxygen (CO) core, the mixing results in large amounts of carbon and oxygen being brought up into the accreted layers. The presence of enriched carbon causes enhanced nuclear fusion and a Classical Nova (CN)explosion. Thus, the WD in a Classical Nova system is decreasing in mass and cannot be a SN Ia progenitor. In new calculations reported here, th...

Photovoltaic solar concentrator module  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This invention consists of a planar photovoltaic concentrator module for producing an electrical signal from incident solar radiation which includes an electrically insulating housing having a front wall, an opposing back wall and a hollow interior. A solar cell having electrical terminals is positioned within the interior of the housing. A planar conductor is connected with a terminal of the solar cell of the same polarity. A lens forming the front wall of the housing is operable to direct solar radiation incident to the lens into the interior of the housing. A refractive optical element in contact with the solar cell and facing the lens receives the solar radiation directed into the interior of the housing by the lens and directs the solar radiation to the solar cell to cause the solar cell to generate an electrical signal. An electrically conductive planar member is positioned in the housing to rest on the housing back wall in supporting relation with the solar cell terminal of opposite polarity. The planar member is operable to dissipate heat radiated by the solar cell as the solar cell generates an electrical signal and further forms a solar cell conductor connected with the solar cell terminal to permit the electrical signal generated by the solar cell to be measured between the planar member and the conductor.

Thompson, Senior Naturalist SOD HOUSES In the 1860's and 70's, when pioneer settlers came to homestead free land on the vast lonely prairies of Kansas and Nebraska, they found a country that, except for fringes of cottonwoods and willows along the streams, was treeless. There was no rock and mighty little timber for building houses and barns. Lumber was very expensive and scarce. So was money. However, the prairies were thickly covered with short, drought- enduring buffalo and blue grama grasses. Some of the Indian tribes which not only hunted buffalo but also grew corn -- notably the Pawnee, Osage and Hidatsa -- had large earthlodges. They used sod in the walls and the conical or dome-like roofs had pole rafters covered with willow brush, slough hay, sod, and finally clay. So the homesteaders were inspired to build their homes with slabs of the remarkably thick and tough prairie sod: "Nebraska marble".

Modeling, design and thermal performance of a BIPV/T system thermally coupled with a ventilated concrete slab in a low energy solar house: Part 2, ventilated concrete slab  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper is the second of two papers that describe the modeling and design of a building-integrated photovoltaic-thermal (BIPV/T) system thermally coupled with a ventilated concrete slab (VCS) adopted in a prefabricated, two-storey detached, low energy solar house and their performance assessment based on monitored data. The VCS concept is based on an integrated thermal-structural design with active storage of solar thermal energy while serving as a structural component - the basement floor slab ({proportional_to}33 m{sup 2}). This paper describes the numerical modeling, design, and thermal performance assessment of the VCS. The thermal performance of the VCS during the commissioning of the unoccupied house is presented. Analysis of the monitored data shows that the VCS can store 9-12 kWh of heat from the total thermal energy collected by the BIPV/T system, on a typical clear sunny day with an outdoor temperature of about 0 C. It can also accumulate thermal energy during a series of clear sunny days without overheating the slab surface or the living space. This research shows that coupling the VCS with the BIPV/T system is a viable method to enhance the utilization of collected solar thermal energy. A method is presented for creating a simplified three-dimensional, control volume finite difference, explicit thermal model of the VCS. The model is created and validated using monitored data. The modeling method is suitable for detailed parametric study of the thermal behavior of the VCS without excessive computational effort. (author)

DETECTION OF PLASMA FLUCTUATIONS IN WHITE-LIGHT IMAGES OF THE OUTER SOLAR CORONA: INVESTIGATION OF THE SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL EVOLUTION  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This work focuses on the first results from the identification and characterization of periodic plasma density fluctuations in the outer corona, observed in STEREO-A COR1 white-light image time series. A two-dimensional reconstruction of the spatial distribution and temporal evolution of the coronal fluctuation power has been performed over the whole plane of the sky, from 1.4 to 4.0 R{sub Sun }. The adopted diagnostic tool is based on wavelet transforms. This technique, with respect to the standard Fourier analysis, has the advantage of localizing non-persistent fluctuating features and exploring variations of the relating wavelet power in both space and time. The map of the variance of the coronal brightness clearly outlines intermittent spatially coherent fluctuating features, localized along, or adjacent to, the strongest magnetic field lines. In most cases, they do not correspond to the visible coronal structures in the brightness maps. The results obtained provide a scenario in which the solar corona shows quasi-periodic, non-stationary density variations characterized by a wide range of temporal and spatial scales and strongly confined by the magnetic field topology. In addition, structures fluctuating with larger power are larger in size and evolve more slowly. The characteristic periodicities of the fluctuations are comparable to their lifetimes. This suggests that plasma fluctuations lasting only one or two wave periods and initially characterized by a single dominant periodicity either rapidly decay into a turbulent mixed flow via nonlinear interactions with other plasma modes, or they are damped by thermal conduction. The periodic non-stationary coronal fluctuations outlined by the closed field lines at low and mid latitudes might be associated with the existence of slow standing magneto-acoustic waves excited by the convective supergranular motion. The fluctuating ray-like structures observed along open field lines appear to be linked either to the intermittent nature of the processes underlying the generation of magnetic reconnection in the polar regions or to the oscillatory transverse displacements of the coronal ray itself.

Spiders Spiders Nature Bulletin No. 206-A November 13, 1965 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roland F. Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation HOUSE SPIDERS Nothing humiliates a housewife more than to spy a dusty streamer of cobwebs dangling from the ceiling when she has "company". With a cloth on the end of her broom, or a vacuum cleaner, she wages continual war on spiders. The spider itself frequently escapes by darting into a hide-away or dropping by a thread of silk to the floor where it may play "possum" until things have quieted down. But in basements, in unused rooms, in attics, between windows and screens, beneath porches, and in garages or other out buildings, many small spiders live their interesting lives.

Building and marketing passive solar homes  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

For passive solar to reach its potential as a force in dealing with the nation's energy problems, it must be adapted by the mainstream of the housing industry. This will only happen if passive solar can become part of the answer to the real issues concerning marketability and affordability that face the housing industry in the 80's. This paper discusses the forces which can be brought to bear to expedite the movement of passive solar into the housing industry and how passive solar can become an instrumental part in creating marketability in housing. It describes design concepts and marketing techniques that are compatible with passive solar.

A hybrid power plant (Solar–Wind–Hydrogen) model based in artificial intelligence for a remote-housing application in Mexico  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

World fossil fuel reserve is expected to be exhausted in coming few decades. Therefore, the decentralization of energy production requires the design and integration of different energy sources and conversion technologies to meet the power demand for single remote housing applications in a sustainable way under various weather conditions. This work focuses on the integration of photovoltaic (PV) system, micro-wind turbine (WT), Polymeric Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEM-FC) stack and PEM water electrolyzer (PEM-WE), for a sustained power generation system (2.5 kW). The main contribution of this work is the hybridization of alternate energy sources with the hydrogen conversion systems using mid-term and short-term storage models based in artificial intelligence techniques built from experimental data (measurements obtained from the site of interest), this models allow to obtain better accuracy in performance prediction (PVMSE = 8.4%, PEM-FCMSE = 2.4%, PEM-WEMSE = 1.96%, GSRMSE = 7.9%, WTMSE = 14%) with a practical design and dynamic under intelligent control strategies to build an autonomous system.

They have webbed antlers similiar to some elk and they have a larger snout than a brown deer. There fawns are incredibly beautiful as they are born brown with white spots. They seem to stay in large groups and are quite timid. My question is, "Do you know if these deer shed their antlers like the others?" We know they are not albino deer. Their eyes seem to be brown and their hair is a little longer than the brown deer. Thank you.

Solar Decathlon 2013 Features the Best Houses, Closest Scoring Ever Friday, October 11, 2013 Solar Decathlon As the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013 approaches the finish line, the standings are tight-in fact, the closest ever, which is a reflection of the quality of the competition houses. At each Solar Decathlon, we say that everyone is a winner, but this year it's more true than ever. All the houses are impressive. As a result, the juries have issued more ties in their evaluations than ever before. The scoring in the five performance-based contests is very close as well.

Radon in Syrian houses  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A nationwide investigation of radon levels in Syrian houses was carried out during the period 1991 - 1993. Passive radon diffusion dosemeters using polycarbonate detectors were distributed in houses all over Syria. Detectors were subjected to electrochemical etching to reveal latent tracks of alpha particles. The mean radon concentration in Syrian houses was found to be with some values several times higher. This investigation indicated that there were a few houses in Syria that require remedial action. Most houses that have high levels of radon were found in the southern area, especially in the Damascus governorate. The study also indicated that radon concentrations were higher in old houses built from mud with no tiling.

The Gaia data will help to improve the construction of a luminosity function for the disk and the halo and will provide a more accurate determination of the age of our solar neighborhood. Moreover, reliable stellar dynamical investigations of the disk and halo components will be possible. For the first time it will be possible to test the mass-radius relation of white dwarfs in great detail. Moreover, more accurate masses of magnetic and cool white dwarfs can be expected. Gaia is also expected to discover many new pulsating white dwarfs. The Gaia measurements can also complement the measurements of gravitational waves from close white dwarf binaries with Lisa.

Solar skylight  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A reflective shutter rotates within a skylight housing in such a fashion as to control solar energy thereby providing a combination of heating, lighting, and ventilation. The skylight housing has three faces: a glazed southern face, a glazed northern face, and an open downwardly oriented face to the interior of the structure. Counter-weighted pivot arms support the shutter at either end causing the center of rotation to pass through the center of gravity. The shutter has three basic positions: In the first position, during the winter day, the shutter closes off the northern face, allowing solar energy to enter directly into the supporting structure providing heat gain and daylighting. In the second position, during the winter night, the shutter closes off the open face to the interior, providing insulation between the structure and the skylight housing. In the third position, during the non-heating season, the shutter closes off the southern face blocking unwanted heat gain but allowing diffuse northern light to penetrate for daylighting. In this last position, a means is provided for ventilating by natural convection. The apparatus can be operated either manually or by motor.

The two-year competition challenges collegiate teams to build energy-efficient, solar-powered houses. Over the course of the competition, students gain hands-on experience in everything from fundraising and marketing to design and construction. Showcasing their houses to the general public allows students to get feedback on their designs and how they work in the real world -- something that many of them would never get in the classroom.

25 People x 4 Days + 1 Manual = Team Belgium's E-Cube 25 People x 4 Days + 1 Manual = Team Belgium's E-Cube Tuesday, September 27, 2011 By Phil West Like many of you, I have assembled everything from dining room tables to bunk beds with an Allen wrench and a beverage-stained set of black-and-white line drawings. I've even drilled new holes, convinced that the instructions had to be wrong, only to find out I had the board upside down-or inside out-or otherwise got caught up in some sort of "Tab A into Slot B" kerfuffle. I was out at the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon this weekend looking over video of students describing the amazing energy-efficient houses they've designed and constructed for the 2011 competition here in Washington, D.C.

Integrated solar heating unit  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This patent describes an integral solar heating unit with an integral solar collector and hot water storage system, the unit comprising: (a) a housing; (b) a flat plate solar collector panel mounted in the housing and having a generally horizontal upper edge and an uninsulated, open back surface; (c) a cylindrical hot water tank operatively connected to the solar collector panel and mounted in the housing generally parallel to and adjacent to the upper edge; (d) the housing comprising a hood around the tank a pair of side skirts extending down at the sides of the panel. The hood and side skirts terminate at lower edges which together substantially define a plane such that upon placing the heating unit on a generally planar surface, the housing substantially encapsulates the collector panel and hot water tank in a substantially enclosed air space; (e) the collector including longitudinally extended U-shaped collector tubes and a glazed window to pass radiation through to the collector tubes, and a first cold water manifold connected to the tubes for delivering fresh water thereto and a second hot water manifold connected to the tubes to remove heated water therefrom. The manifolds are adjacent and at least somewhat above and in direct thermal contact with the tank; and, (f) the skirts and hood lapping around the collector panel, exposing only the glazed window, such that everything else in the heating unit is enclosed by the housing such that heat emanating from the uninsulated, open back face of the collector and tank is captured and retained by the housing to warm the manifolds.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The first solar photovoltaic house designed and constructed under the US Department of Energy's Solar Photovoltaic Residential Project has been completed. The house, which is powered by a 7-kWp PV system, will be used to assess the occupants' acceptance of and reactions to residential photovoltaic systems and to familiarize utilities, builders, developers, town building officials and others with issues concerning photovoltaic installations. The house is located on a two-acre lot in Carlisle, approximately twenty miles northwest of Boston. Built by a local architect/developer team, the house includes energy conservation and passive solar features. It utilizes a roof-mounted, flat-plate PV array which operates in a two-way energy exchange mode with the electric utility. The energy conservation and passive solar features of this house are described and a detailed description of the utility-interactive photovoltaic system is presented, along with initial performance data.

Pet House Sparrow Pet House Sparrow Name: mary Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: I found a Baby House Sparrow and raised it. This Sparrow is a female and is about 5 months old and very tame. We are keeping this bird as a pet. We are interested in possibly breeding this bird and was wondering if you can mix breed the House Sparrow with a Finch or type of Sparrow that you could purchase at a pet store? What is the life expectancy of the House Sparrow? Replies: In the wild most small birds only live a year or two; well cared for in captivity they might be able to make it twice that long, but don't count on it. There are some records of exceptional life lengths for some species of small birds, 8 or 10 years, but I haven't heard of any for house sparrows. I don't think you would be able to cross breed house sparrows with any of the others, but I couldn't say for sure. Hybridization normally occurs only between very closely related species; I don't know enough about genetics.

Instead of just thinking about building materials and cost in the design process, teams have to consider a myriad of factors to create a winning house. Although the design process never officially ends, the teams spend more than a year focusing on design before breaking ground on their houses. Early in the process, they select a target client for their house-one of the biggest impacts on their final design-and decide how they will

Solar Decathlon Contests Solar Decathlon Contests Like the Olympic decathlon, the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon consists of 10 contests. These contests are designed to gauge how well the houses perform and how livable and affordable they are. Each contest is worth a maximum of 100 points, for a competition total of 1,000 points. Teams can earn points three ways: Task completion Teams complete household tasks such as cooking, washing dishes, and doing laundry. Monitored performance Team houses perform to specified criteria, such as maintaining a comfortable (71°-76°F) indoor temperature range. Jury evaluation Jurors who are experts in their field (such as architecture, engineering, and communications) award points for features that cannot be measured (such as aesthetics and design inspiration).

Solar access: it's the law  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The contents of the California Solar Rights Act and the California Solar Shade Control Act which may have an impact on the way in which development, particularly housing, is designed and constructed in California, are reviewed. The Solar Rights Act establishes the state government of California as supporting and encouraging solar energy implementation at the local level. The law sets parameters for establishing solar easements, amends the Solar Tax Credit to include costs of easements, prohibits ordinances and private covenants which restrict solar systems, and requires communities to consider passive solar and natural heating and cooling opportunities in new construction. The Solar Rights Act is binding on all charter cities, and is thus applicable to all California cities and counties. The Solar Shade Control Act prohibits the blockage of solar radiation by vegetation to solar collectors which meet certain specific qualifications. Owners of property with unlawful vegetation are subject to criminal charges and fines of up to $500 per day of continued infraction. However, cities and counties may elect to exempt themselves from provisions of the Solar Shade Control Act. This manuscript explains solar access concepts, interprets the legal language of the laws for lay readers, and offers specific planning and design guidelines for use by developers, planners, and government officials in reviewing or developing plans to ensure solar access to structures. Twenty-four illustrations, a glossary, and several practical appendices are offered to assist the reader in understanding and complying with the laws.

Solar collector  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The disclosure is a solar collector consisting of glass rods enclosed in a housing and mounted vertically on a roof or other elevated place to gather solar rays. The collector is fixed, with no tracking device or other moving parts. The glass rods are 6 mm or smaller in diameter, and there can be several thousand, depending on the sizes of the rods and collector. The upper ends of the rods are inclined at an angle of thirty degrees from horizontal, with the inclined surfaces occupying a plane which faces south so as to obtain maximum exposure to the winter sun. Solar rays striking the inclined ends of the rods are refracted into the rods. The rays travel down through the rods, with a predominantly parallel path of propagation being established by repeated reflections off the inside walls of the rods. The rays are emitted from the lower perpendicular ends of the rods as parallel rays of incoherent light which are directed into beam concentrators.

Assessment of a Solar Assisted Air Source and a Solar Assisted Water Source Heat Pump System in a Canadian Household  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents an assessment of two solar assisted heat pump systems integrated into an air distribution system in three different 210 m2 single detached residential houses in Montreal, Canada. The housing types considered are a 1980's house, an energy efficient house and a “net zero ready” house. The advanced heat pump systems considered in the analysis focused on coupling solar energy on the evaporator side of an air source and water source heat pumps to improve performance compared to a standard air source heat pump and provide an alternative to a costly ground source heat pump system. The annual energy consumption and utility cost of the solar assisted heat pump systems were compared to a market available air source heat pump, a ground source heat pump system as well as the typical reference housing heating and cooling system. The results predicted that a solar assisted air source heat pump has a comparable capital cost to a ground source heat pump system in all housing types and the highest energy savings for a “net zero ready” house of 34% compared to the base case. The solar assisted water source heat pump did not yield interesting results, as the solar assisted air source heat pump demonstrated improved energy savings and lower capital costs in all housing types considered. Comparing the 20 year life cycle costs of the solar assisted heat pump systems to the base case, only in the 1980's housing archetype did the solar assisted air source heat pump system demonstrate a lower life cycle cost than the base case. A standard air source heat pump yielded the lowest life cycle cost in the 1980's and energy efficient house considered and the reference base case system had the lowest life cycle cost in the net zero ready house considered.

Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation SOD HOUSE FURNISHINGS Last year, after we issued Bulletin No. 620-A about the sod houses built by early settlers on the Great Plains, there were numerous requests for this one about the furnishings in those unique dwellings. If they seem meager and inadequate, bear in mind that, with rare exceptions, the pioneers were so poor that some had nothing but iron determination and courage. After the Civil War, ex-soldiers from both armies "pulled up stakes and lit out" for Nebraska, Kansas, or Texas. Under the Homestead Act of 1862, anyone who had not been a Rebel could "file" on and obtain, free, a quarter-section (160 acres) of "government land" -- public domain -- and, by paying $200, claim and pre-empt another. There were no restrictions on purchases from land companies, nor from the railroads that had been granted millions of acres.

Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation DEER MICE AND WHITE-FOOTED MICE At night, sitting on a wooded shore, waiting for fish to bite or quietly gazing into the coals of a camp fire, you often become aware of mysterious small noises nearby in the darkness. Sometimes it is only a faint scratching on a tree trunk, or a rustling in the fallen leaves. But, again, you may hear a tiny drumming sound or a musical buzzing hum. Spooks? No. The best guess is that you have disturbed the night life of a wild mouse. He makes the drumming sound by rapidly tapping a dry leaf or hollow stem with his front feet. Unlike house mice, his voice is more of a song than a mere squeak. If you catch him in the beam of a flashlight you see an alert animal face with big ears, large black bulging eyes, and a beautiful coat -- rich brown above with snow-white underparts and feet. From these prominent characteristics came the common names of our two local species, the Deer Mouse and the White-footed Mouse.

Flying Squirrels and Houses  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

Flying Squirrels and Houses Flying Squirrels and Houses Name: Kathy Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: How do you get rid of flying squirrels in the attic of a Cape style home that has limited access to the attic? There is blown in insulation so we cannot see to the end of the house where we hear them, nor can a person crawl in to see anything. We have used d-con bars, mouse traps and have-a-heart traps in the crawl spaces we can reach, but have caught nothing. Replies: Place a statue of an owl near the entrance the squirrels are using. Owls are their motal enemies and this technique works for birds as well. Steve Sample You will not be able to solve this problem until you find the way they go in and out. Usually the easiest way is to look for light coming in from outside while in the dark attic, but if you can't see it that way do a thorough search of the outside. A flying squirrel does not need a very big hole, maybe 2" or less diameter. They go out at night so once you find the hole close it up at night while they are out. Good luck.

Homebuilder's Guide to Going Solar (Brochure)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A Homebuilder's Guide to Going Solar is designed to help you assess the benefits to your business and customers of installing solar equipment or making your houses solar-ready. The information comes from studies of builders who have successfully integrated solar into their operations as well as conversations with builders and solar professionals. These studies and conversations indicate that builders want to know: (1) Do solar economics work in my area? (2) If not, are there other reasons to go solar?; and (3) Is there a local support system of solar professionals I can call on to help me integrate solar seamlessly into my projects? This effort to educate builders about solar is a work in progress.

The Low State Temperature Distribution and First Chemical Abundances of White Dwarfs in Polars  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

During the low optical brightness states of AM Herculis systems (polars) when accretion has declined to a very low value, the underlying magnetic white dwarf photosphere can be modelled without the complication of thermal bremstrahlung and cyclotron emission from the luminous accretion column. The far ultraviolet spectra can be modelled with high gravity solar composition photospheres. In this way, I present new temperatures and the first chemical abundance estimates for the white dwarfs in three selected polars from the IUE NEWSIPS archive. For the white dwarf in V834 Cen with Teff = 16,000$K, Si/H = 0.1 solar, C/H = 0.5 solar, for BY Cam, Teff = 17,000 K, Si/H = 0.1, C/H = 5 solar and for RX J1313-32, Teff = 22,000 K, Si/H = 0.1 solar, C/H = 0.1 solar. The temperature distribution of 24 white dwarfs in polars with known temperatures above and below the period gap is compared with the distribution of the white dwarf temperatures in dwarf novae during quiescence. In both cases, the magnetic white dwarfs in polars are significantly cooler than the non-magnetics. For all CV white dwarfs, magnetic and non-magnetic with Teff heating and cooling of white dwarfs in polars differs from the effects of long term accretion in non-magnetic disk accretors.

October, 2010 October, 2010 Where Are the Past Solar Decathlon Houses Today? Friday, October 8, 2010 Since the first U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon in 2002, 72 houses have competed for the honor of victory on the National Mall. When the competitions ended, the collegiate teams packed up and returned to campus. But what happened to their houses? The past Solar Decathlon houses have been put to a variety of uses. For example: Twenty-four continue to contribute to university research and outreach on their campuses. Fifteen now host the public as educational exhibits extolling the benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency. Seven are used for business and meeting space. Seventeen serve as private residences for lucky families and students. And if living in a Solar Decathlon house is appealing to you, you're in

Solar powered dehumidifier apparatus  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A thermally insulated light transmitting housing forms a chamber containing a desiccant and having a first gas port open to the ambient and a second gas port connected by a two way valve to a volume to be dried. Solar energy transmitted through the housing heats and dries the desiccant. The increased air pressure due to the heating of the volume to be dried causes the air from the volume to be expelled through the valve into the chamber. The desiccant is then cooled by shielding it from solar energy before the volume cools thereby increasing its moisture absorbing capacity. Then the volume is allowed to cool drawing dehumidified air through the desiccant and the valve into the volume to be dried. This cycle is then repeated.

Design implications and potentials of passive solar heating in higher density communities: the Lykovrissi Solar Village  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Carefully analyzed building density, massing, and orientation become critical if solar access to the building is to be maintained. Even more carefully thought out building organization and room planning is critical if solar access to the apartment is to be maintained. Finally, careful material and component selection and placement, as well as window control system design is critical if solar access (heating) for the individual is to be maintained. The prerequisite guidelines necessary to ensure this completed solar access were established for the design of the Lykovrissi Solar Village now under construction near Athens. Fulfilling a cooperative agreement of 1978 between Germany and Greece, a community of rowhouses and three-to-six story multi-family units have been designed to provide energy efficient and solar assisted housing for 431 low income families, with a clear perspective on comparing solar systems for future subsidized housing.

Feasibility studies on net zero energy building for climate considering: A case of “All Green House” for Datong, Shanxi, China  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper will discuss the feasibility of a net zero energy house design targeting for energy balance, financial and environmental sustainability from the initial planning to the final construction for Northern China. A residential house as an experimental objective, which could satisfy an average family's daily needs are in Datong, Shanxi Province in China. Dynamic thermal simulation of the indoor environment, house geometries, solar electric and hot-water collectors, appliances are set in the house. After analysis of the integrated performance of the house, a net zero energy building with the best system configuration predicted by hardware and software simulation are validated. Furthermore, the house is precisely energy monitored and energy controlled after construction. The case study shows that the innovation of a net zero building should be considered as a technological improvement and with a social approval by the occupants of the house.

The European Passive House Concept The European Passive House Concept Speaker(s): Nabih Tahan Date: January 13, 2009 - 12:00pm Location: 90-3122 Nabih will describe the European Passive House concept and modern, home manufacturing methods in Austria. The Passive House is a European standard for a specific way to build a house that consumes very little energy, is comfortable and has a high indoor air quality. It is a cost effective method of building, where conventional heating systems are eliminated, and their cost is reinvested in super insulation, super air-tightness and heat recovery. Free heat generated from electrical and gas appliances and lighting is recycled through the heat recovery ventilator. This results in buildings that consume 80% to 90% less heating energy while constantly

Military housing foam application and analysis  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Sandia and Forest City have established a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), the partnership provides a unique opportunity to take technology research and development from demonstration to application in sustainable communities. This project consists of two activities conducted in Hawaii that focus on performance, integration and application of energy saving technologies. Hawaii has many energy challenges, making this location an excellent testbed for these activities. Under this project, spray foam technology was applied at military housing on Oahu and the consumption data collected. A cost benefit and operational analysis of the foam was completed. The second phase of this project included design, integration, and analysis of photovoltaic systems at a military community on Oahu. This phase of the project was conducted as part of Forest City's second Solar America Showcase Award.

A statistical analysis of passive solar superinsulated homes in Minnesota  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This study analyzed the space heat performance of 46 passive solar superinsulated homes whose construction was financed by the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency (MHFA). heat gain and loss calculations were used to predict the auxiliary heating energy required by the houses. These calculations were adjusted for actual weather conditions, thermostat settings and other variables during the 1981-1982 heating season. The sample was divided into two sub-samples, one containing houses with ratios of south glass area relative to floor area of 8.5% or larger, and a second with smaller ratios of south glass area to floor area. The results suggest that houses with larger south glass area relative to floor area may not perform as predicted. These houses appeared to have more heat loss than heat gain associated with the south windows. In the houses with less south facing glass, the passive solar components appeared to perform as predicted.

Solar Decathlon 2011 Swings Into First Full Day of Construction Solar Decathlon 2011 Swings Into First Full Day of Construction Wednesday, September 14, 2011 Carol Anna Since the first trucks rolled onto the National Mall's West Potomac Park late last night, the site of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011 has become alive with activity. Surrounded by trucks and cranes, decathletes in full construction safety gear have wasted no time beginning assembly of their houses. "The student teams are really pumped up. I've never seen teams so excited," said Richard King, Solar Decathlon director. Last week's torrential rains made accessing the site difficult for many of the big rigs carrying houses. But the site is now drying out, and managing the flow of vehicles has become much easier. But for three teams, the challenge to deliver their houses is not over yet.
