ENERGY+ POSITIVE HOMES
Built Environment Homes
Utilizing a combination and
passive and active energy
conserving and
generating materials (phase
change), and employing built
environment methodologies,
energy positive, zero- carbon
homes can be erected rapidly and
at a lower construction cost with
less waste.
Geothermal bore holes
Provide year-round temperate heating and cooling that circulate
water down into the earth, as a means to regulate low-energy
climate control in homes and buildings above. Geothermal Heat
Pumps transfer heat from and to the ground. They do that
through closed loops of plastic pipes buried either horizontally or
vertically in the ground below the frost line where the
temperature is consistently between 40° to 80° F depending on
where you live. (Enviga Geothermal 2015)
Thermal Batteries
A Thermal Battery System is an innovative renewable energy
mechanical system for homes. By combining solar thermal
collectors, a water
source heat pump, and a latent-capable Thermal Battery,
site-derived renewable energy can heat and cool buildings. Poly
cistern tanks with an internal heat exchanger are filled with phase
change material of water. This tank is buried in the earth outside a
home and readily collects and stores energy that have been
integrated with the system. (Woolpert, 2013)
WATER ENERGY CYCLE
A microgrid is an approach to electrical distribution that
allows local users more control over the optimization of
power sources and uses. Technically, it is a grouping of small,
independent power-generating equipment connected to
computer systems that monitor, control and balance energy
demand, supply and storagein response to changing energy
needs.
Microgrids produce electricity locally, have discrete electrical
boundaries and provide a single point of connection to the
largerutility grid. One of the distinguishing features of a
microgrid is the ability to disconnect from the utility grid
(called “islanding”) to provide autonomous power in
response to demand needs or external events, such as power
outages or other emergencies.
Typically, one or more conventional generationassets
comprise the core of the microgrid, such as a diesel
generator,and other distributed power systems may
produce electricity from renewable or nonrenewable
sources, such as solar photovoltiac or fuel cell systems.
By balancing local energy demand with electricity generated
and stored on-site, a microgrid can produce secure, reliable
and affordable energy for entire communities or for
commercial, industrial and government facilities.
MICROGRID GENERATION/STORAGE/LOAD-BALANCING
Vertical Growing Systems
High-yield organic food production in controlled greenhouse
environments provides over 33% increase in yield (9+ harvests
over 6), with nearly 65% less labor, and using low-energy LED
lighting, geothermal heating and cooling, vertical farming can
produce over 110,000 pounds of food per hector per year. In
combination with seasonal gardens, food forests and permaculture
practices it is estimated that 100 families could supplement their
nutritional inputs by 60% in developed countries, and more than
likely 100% in developing areas. (Ehrlich, 2014)
Aquaponics Ecosystem Integration
Cultivating several species of fresh water fish, shrimp and crawfish in
embedded and adjacent high-volume tanks is an integral part of the
closed-loop organic food nexus. Fish waste is converted from ammonia to
nitrite and then nitrates through biological interaction, where the effluent
from the fish tanks is used as fertilizer for the soil-free grow beds,
providing the edible vegetation all they need to thrive. The nitrate rich
water then flows back to the fish tanks saving nearly 85% water that
would otherwise be lost due to drainage or evaporation. (Ehrlich, 2013)
HIGH-YIELD ORGANIC FOOD PRODUCTION
Hermetia illucens – Black Soldier Fly Larvae
The system comprises several zones for culturing different organisms, like
black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens), the freswater worm
(Lumbriculus variegatus), the aquatic fern Azolla sp, a high content of
omegas-3 plant purslane (Portulaca orelacea), vegetables, fish and chicken
in the same loop. The connections and interactions between different
zones of this system are crucial; also the unique methods for culturing
some of those organisms are described. (Alfredo Llecha, August 2016)
Lumbriculus variegatus – Aquatic Red Worms
Freshwater worms of the species Lumbriculus variegatus (Oligochaeta,
Lumbriculidae, common name blackworms) grown on safe low-grade
organic waste may be a suitable replacement for fishmeal. Analysis ofFA
and amino acid composition of L. variegatus grown on fish feed concluded
that the FA and amino acid composition render this worm species an
excellent fish feed, that is equivalent to, or better for fish growth and health
than regular fish feeds, such as Artemia (brine shrimps) or dry feeds. (Mount
et al. (2006)
CLOSED-LOOP ORGANIC BIOGENERATORS
Anaerobic Digestion Process
Anaerobic Digestion occurs in biodigesters and
produces biogas. It removes Biochemical Oxygen
Demand (BOD) from sewage, conserves nutrients
(especially nitrogen compounds) and most importantly
reduces pathogens.After each flush, it will take 23 days
for the waste to go through the treatment process and
reenter the homes as biogas. The sludge-y “leftovers,”
effluent, from the anaerobicdigestion will be used as
fertilizer. (Jerger, D. & Tsao, G. 2006)
Hydroponic Living Machine
Water enters a series of Hydroponic Reactors which are filled with a
textile material and covered with vegetation supported on racks and
aerated with bubble diffusers, providing the oxygen required for
treatment, while keeping the tank contents mixed. The roots of the
vegetation provide surfaces for attached microbial populations’
growth, while vegetation itself serves as habitat for beneficial insects
and organisms that graze on microbial biomass. A light-weight

  • 10. ENERGY+ POSITIVE HOMES Built Environment Homes Utilizing a combination and passive and active energy conserving and generating materials (phase change), and employing built environment methodologies, energy positive, zero- carbon homes can be erected rapidly and at a lower construction cost with less waste.
  • 11. Geothermal bore holes Provide year-round temperate heating and cooling that circulate water down into the earth, as a means to regulate low-energy climate control in homes and buildings above. Geothermal Heat Pumps transfer heat from and to the ground. They do that through closed loops of plastic pipes buried either horizontally or vertically in the ground below the frost line where the temperature is consistently between 40° to 80° F depending on where you live. (Enviga Geothermal 2015) Thermal Batteries A Thermal Battery System is an innovative renewable energy mechanical system for homes. By combining solar thermal collectors, a water source heat pump, and a latent-capable Thermal Battery, site-derived renewable energy can heat and cool buildings. Poly cistern tanks with an internal heat exchanger are filled with phase change material of water. This tank is buried in the earth outside a home and readily collects and stores energy that have been integrated with the system. (Woolpert, 2013) WATER ENERGY CYCLE
  • 12. A microgrid is an approach to electrical distribution that allows local users more control over the optimization of power sources and uses. Technically, it is a grouping of small, independent power-generating equipment connected to computer systems that monitor, control and balance energy demand, supply and storagein response to changing energy needs. Microgrids produce electricity locally, have discrete electrical boundaries and provide a single point of connection to the largerutility grid. One of the distinguishing features of a microgrid is the ability to disconnect from the utility grid (called “islanding”) to provide autonomous power in response to demand needs or external events, such as power outages or other emergencies. Typically, one or more conventional generationassets comprise the core of the microgrid, such as a diesel generator,and other distributed power systems may produce electricity from renewable or nonrenewable sources, such as solar photovoltiac or fuel cell systems. By balancing local energy demand with electricity generated and stored on-site, a microgrid can produce secure, reliable and affordable energy for entire communities or for commercial, industrial and government facilities. MICROGRID GENERATION/STORAGE/LOAD-BALANCING
  • 13. Vertical Growing Systems High-yield organic food production in controlled greenhouse environments provides over 33% increase in yield (9+ harvests over 6), with nearly 65% less labor, and using low-energy LED lighting, geothermal heating and cooling, vertical farming can produce over 110,000 pounds of food per hector per year. In combination with seasonal gardens, food forests and permaculture practices it is estimated that 100 families could supplement their nutritional inputs by 60% in developed countries, and more than likely 100% in developing areas. (Ehrlich, 2014) Aquaponics Ecosystem Integration Cultivating several species of fresh water fish, shrimp and crawfish in embedded and adjacent high-volume tanks is an integral part of the closed-loop organic food nexus. Fish waste is converted from ammonia to nitrite and then nitrates through biological interaction, where the effluent from the fish tanks is used as fertilizer for the soil-free grow beds, providing the edible vegetation all they need to thrive. The nitrate rich water then flows back to the fish tanks saving nearly 85% water that would otherwise be lost due to drainage or evaporation. (Ehrlich, 2013) HIGH-YIELD ORGANIC FOOD PRODUCTION
  • 14. Hermetia illucens – Black Soldier Fly Larvae The system comprises several zones for culturing different organisms, like black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens), the freswater worm (Lumbriculus variegatus), the aquatic fern Azolla sp, a high content of omegas-3 plant purslane (Portulaca orelacea), vegetables, fish and chicken in the same loop. The connections and interactions between different zones of this system are crucial; also the unique methods for culturing some of those organisms are described. (Alfredo Llecha, August 2016) Lumbriculus variegatus – Aquatic Red Worms Freshwater worms of the species Lumbriculus variegatus (Oligochaeta, Lumbriculidae, common name blackworms) grown on safe low-grade organic waste may be a suitable replacement for fishmeal. Analysis ofFA and amino acid composition of L. variegatus grown on fish feed concluded that the FA and amino acid composition render this worm species an excellent fish feed, that is equivalent to, or better for fish growth and health than regular fish feeds, such as Artemia (brine shrimps) or dry feeds. (Mount et al. (2006) CLOSED-LOOP ORGANIC BIOGENERATORS
  • 15. Anaerobic Digestion Process Anaerobic Digestion occurs in biodigesters and produces biogas. It removes Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) from sewage, conserves nutrients (especially nitrogen compounds) and most importantly reduces pathogens.After each flush, it will take 23 days for the waste to go through the treatment process and reenter the homes as biogas. The sludge-y “leftovers,” effluent, from the anaerobicdigestion will be used as fertilizer. (Jerger, D. & Tsao, G. 2006) Hydroponic Living Machine Water enters a series of Hydroponic Reactors which are filled with a textile material and covered with vegetation supported on racks and aerated with bubble diffusers, providing the oxygen required for treatment, while keeping the tank contents mixed. The roots of the vegetation provide surfaces for attached microbial populations’ growth, while vegetation itself serves as habitat for beneficial insects and organisms that graze on microbial biomass.
