Abstract

As environmental issues become even more relevant to current and upcoming generations, new methods of producing energy are being explored. The housing sector contributes to a large portion of energy waste. This documentary will compare an experimental kit including a sustainable house, called “Power House,” to Western Oregon University’s LEED platinum certified resident Ackerman Hall. Ackerman Hall features sustainable and environmentally friendly technologies such as rainwater collection, thermal water heating, automatic lights and outlets, and recycled building materials. The focus of the documentary will be on solar heating, thermal water heating and cooling, environmentally friendly buildings and sustainable living. Experiments done with the “Power House” kit will concentrate on illustrating solar water heating, greenhouse plant growth, and increases and decreases in building temperatures.
