Welcome to Das Haus Tour

The quest for a sufficient and efficient energy has been as long as human history. The discovery and production of energy from steam, coal, and fossil led to the industrial revolution. However, this has come at a very high cost not just in monetary terms, but an increase in pollution and global warming that now threatens humanity. Consequently, the search has now turned to the possibility of producing clean, efficient, and sufficient energy.

The inspiration for Das Haus (The House), comes from Germany’s winning entries in the 2007 German-American Chambers of Commerce of the Southern United States and 2009 Solar Decathlon. A competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy in which 20 collegiate teams from around the globe design, build, and operates solar-powered houses that are attractive, cost-effective and energy-efficient. Das Haus (The House) expands upon the theme of international collaboration by positioning its tour as a platform to bring together key multipliers essential to finding solutions to North America’s energy challenges. The support of the German Chamber Network will facilitate ongoing discussion and Industry Partnerships for years to come.

Das Haus Tour (The House Tour) The House embarked on a tour for sensitization purpose. The House Tour is an exhibition that connects industry professionals in North America Attendees represent leading organizations and businesses in building materials, with the latest market-ready renewable and energy efficiency solutions from engineering, architecture, renewable energy, and energy efficiency companies.

The project has the support of several of the world’s leading Government Ministry of Economics, leading Universities, and public officials. Engage with a community of experts and Technology, begins and continues on tour to 12 cities resources, and learn how to bring these new sustainability technologies across the United States of America, and other North America countries for over 13 months. Central to the exhibition is an integrated, to the marketplace and gain competitive advantage.  We show our fully functioning structure that applies real-world technologies and solutions that meet ultra-low energy building standards. These will feature during a 10-day stop in each location.

5 Top Sources of Renewable Energy

The industrial revolution brought great development and wealth to the world, especially the Western Europe. The industrial revolution which cane as a result of the mass production of energy to power mechanical engines gave rise to a feverish pursuit of wealth which resulted in the indiscriminate burning of fossils, coal and other dirty energy sources to fuel industries. This has not come without consequences; the earth today is threatened by global warming which is a direct result of the excessive burning of fossil fuel for centuries.

As global warming and other environmental consequences of dirty energy uses threaten civilization, emphasis is now place on the use of clean renewable energies. The House is lists out some of these renewable energy sources.

  1. Solar Energy.

Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Energy is taking advantage of the sun’s energy to produce power. Solar power is the fastest growing energy sources today and ranked as the future of clean, cheap and renewable energy source. New innovative technologies are developing at a rapid pace. Solar cells are becoming cheaper, efficient, transportable and even flexible, allowing easy installation.

  1. Biomass in general terms refers to living and recently dead biological material that can be used as fuel or for industrial production. This source of renewable energy has recently gained considerable attention. In this context, biomass refers to plant material grown to generate electricity or produce, e.g., garbage such as trees and dead branches, sawmill cuttings and biofuel wood chips, and include plant or animal materials used for the production of fibers, products Chemicals or heat. Biomass can also include biodegradable wastes that can be burned as fuel. Industrial biomass is usually grown from various types of plants, including miscanthus, switchgrass, hemp, sugarcane, maize, poplar, a variety of tree species, ranging from eucalyptus to the oil palm, willow, and sorghum. The particular plant used is usually not important for the final products, but it affects the processing of the raw material. Biomass production is a growing industry as interest in sustainable fuel sources is growing.
  2. Geothermal Energy

This is a very powerful and efficient energy. It is a way to extract renewable energy from the earth through natural processes. This could be done easily on a small scale to provide heat for a residential unit through a geothermal heat pump.  It could be done on a large scale through a geothermal power plant for the production of energy.  It has been in used to heat bath in Italy since ancient Roman times. It is now best known for generating electricity. Geothermal energy is cost-effective, reliable and environmentally friendly, but could be geographically limited to areas close to the boundaries of the tectonic plate. However, recent technological advances has expanded the range and size of viable resources dramatically, especially for direct applications such as domestic heating

  1. Wind Energy.

Wind energy is the one of the earliest power source used to move ships with the help of sail in ancient times. Wind power is growing rapidly, and has doubled in recent years. It is the conversion of wind energy by wind turbines into a useful form, such as mechanical energy or electricity. Typically, large-scale wind farms are connected to the local power transmission grid with small turbines used to supply electricity to isolated areas. Residential units are entering production and can power large appliances to whole houses depending on size.

  1. Nuclear Power

Nuclear energy is obtained from the nuclear reaction. It is a technology designed to extract usable energy from the atomic nuclei through controlled nuclear reactions technology. The only method still in use today is through nuclear fission, although other methods could one day include nuclear fusion and radioactive decay.

The United States, France, and Japan generate a substantial part of their energy from this.

Solar Power, the Future of Cheap, Clean, and Renewable Power Source.

From ancient times, the sun has always been a fascinating phenomenon, and has always held humanity in awe. Many cultures across generation and centuries worshipped it while those who did not worship it live in awe of it. All cultures and languages today have great proverbs praising the sun.

The fascination surrounding the sun has not abated even today. In fact, as science and knowledge has expanded, we now understand that the sun is the center of our universe.

Luckily for humanity, the sun is not just a shinning object in the sky; the sun contains a fiery core that its heat can only be imagined. The heat from the solar energy that we feel is only an insignificant amount of its content.

As the worlds energy problems rages on, and the use of fossil fuels threatens to cause a catastrophic damage, the quest for a cleaner, cheap, and renewable energy source has not been more fervent than before. The quest has turned us to the mother of all energy in the universe, our good old dear Sun.

Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Energy is taking advantage of the sun’s energy to produce power. Solar power is the fastest growing energy sources today and ranked as the future of clean, cheap and renewable energy source. New innovative technologies are developing at a rapid pace. Solar cells are becoming cheaper, efficient, transportable and even flexible, allowing easy installation.

Of course, it is difficult to explain all the advantages and possibilities the solar energy holds but we will try to state the most important ones.

The most common known benefit about solar energy is that it is a clean and green source of energy that does noon pollutant, unlike almost any other source of energy. Solar energy does not produce greenhouse gasses and does not pollute/contaminate water or any other part of nature. Apart from that, solar energy is almost self-sufficient and only requires a little water to work.

The price of energy usually differs throughout the day, being more expensive in the midday or the afternoon. Because power plants produces relatively unstable electricity, production and prices rise and fall throughout the day based on the changes mentioned above. With solar power however, you can avoid this increase in price, and get cheap energy throughout the day.

Most countries have a significant amount of land, especially away from urban areas and large cities and capitals, which are used for nothing. With solar energy, they can make use of this underutilized land, while generating a great value. In this way, they do not have to use spaces, which are more appropriate for other things. Morocco is an example here. They are currently using a vast desert area as a solar farm.

It also saves money, and lessens imports. When you use coal, oil or natural gas to generate electricity, you most likely use energy imported from another part of the world. If you want to benefit from your national economy, it is a good idea to use solar energy, because the electricity of your solar panels is domestic.

Use of solar power also lessens the pressure on the national power grid. When we have many people generating energy with solar power, they are less likely to experience blackouts. Each house with solar cells in it works as a small power plant, which provides us with an excellent network security, in the cause of man-made or natural disasters
