Dear DUSA Members and Friends,
Welcome to the IBSS Online Brown Bag Autumn-Winter Series! It comes to the seventh session. Dr Marco Cimillo will share the topic "Y-Project – Developing a high-performance house for Solar Decathlon China 2021" with us.
Meanwhile, please find the upcoming sessions of the Brown Bag talks as below:
Topic: Y-Project – Developing a high-performance house for Solar Decathlon China 2021
Solar Decathlon is a worldwide renowned collegiate competition and applied research initiated by the US Department of Energy in 2002 and subsequently also held in China, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Y-Project has been selected as one of the 15 finalists of Solar Decathlon China 2021 and granted a funding from China Overseas Development Association. Together with XJTLU, the partnership comprises Thomas Jefferson University (Philadelphia, USA), Zhejiang University – University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign Joint Institute (Haining, Zhejiang), and the International Bamboo and Rattan Organisation (Beijing).
We will design and build a state-of-the-art solar house, showcasing the most advanced building technologies, control systems and design strategies. A structure in engineered bamboo, integrated renewable energy production, green walls and roofs, adaptive facades and advanced home automation are some of the main features of the project.
Our prototype will compete against the other international projects in ten contests, mostly performance-based, and after the exhibition in December 2021, will be kept as a demonstration facility for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Zhangjiakou.
Y-Team is looking for innovative and forward-thinking partners to join the team and be part of this exciting endeavour. We will develop with students, academics and industries a project that integrates the best of the current research and technology in a high-performance prototype thought to pave the way for future advancements in the residential building industry.
12:10 PM -12:50 PM, Wednesday, December 2, 2020
