No more bills! Active House is fully SELF-RELIANT
certainly the house of the FUTURE!
Active Houses can be considered a sort of evolution of Passive houses. The definition of Active House applies to those buildings that do not simply satisfy all energy requirements (both thermal and electric) but which are able to produce an amount of energy greater than your own needs with the exclusive use of renewable sources (photovoltaic, solar thermal, mini-wind poower, and so on). The amount of excess energy is accumulated or sold to the public network, thereby contributing to the global modification of the modes for energy production, subtracting them more and more from the domain of fossil sources. They are three basic principles for an Active House: renewable energies, respect for the environment and comfort for occupants.
Energy: to defined a Home as “Active” it is necessary that the entire energy needs are fulfilled by using only energies from renewable sources. Sun and wind, as usual, are the main sources of power: a combination of solar thermal, solar photovoltaic and wind turbines can provide all the energy the house needs. Obviously, as with passive homes and Near Zero Energy Buildings, it is necessary that the same building structure, by adopting passive strategies and bioclimatic criteria, is conceived in such a way as to minimize the energy needs.
Comfort: an active house can not fail to guarantee the highest level of thermal and environmental comfort to its inhabitants. For this reason, the building must be equipped with adequate natural ventilation systems and highly efficient lighting systems.
Environment: an active house can never be disjoined from the environment in which it is located. The same design must be made in such a way as to best respond to the climatic and environmental conditions of the place, in order to optimize solar intake both in winter and summer. Active houses however, are not limited to exploiting the external conditions to improve living comfort but must be designed to optimize relationships with the local context, both in terms of resource use and in taking into account the life cycle of the materials used, always preferring those solutions that have the least impact on the external environment.
