Impact of our project on various sectors
The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive.
Assess design coherence, flexibility & maximization of space, technologies and bioclimatic strategies.
Assess the current market potential for modular & energy efficient houses depending on population and geographical locations
Estimate the innovative aspects of the house focusing on changes that impact value, performance & efficiency
Assess the team's capacity to find creative, effective and efficient ways of transmitting ideas that define the teams' and projects' own identity.
Make the affordable to a larger population which will hence reduce the housing problems in the nation.
Consider the capacity for providing interior comfort through the control of temperature, humidity, acoustics, lighting and quality of air.
evaluate the functionality and efficiency of the appliances which must comply with the demanding standards of present day society.
Create a sense of social connectivity with the physical world.
Use of energy efficient vehicles and ecourage public transport in the vicinity
Measure the houses electrical energy self-sufficiency and assessment of their energy balance
