Sept. 28, 2009 - PRLog -- Denver, Colorado -Energy Environmental Corporation (EEC) is delighted to announce the selection of its innovative test bed Platinum LEED home as the tour home for the Energy Star Summit in Denver on December 9th, 2009. While under construction, this home also served as the Summit’s tour home in 2008 – a sold out tour with high accolades from attendees.

Al Wallace, President of EEC and owner/builder of the home, will present this year’s tour of the completed home with its advanced energy efficiency features. He will introduce attendees to the modeling software and design methodologies incorporated in the home which are commonly used in Europe but rare for U.S. installations. Developers, builders, design and real estate professionals will learn how to position advanced technology in the context of home owner needs.  They will be exposed to the technology and marketing messages that resonate with today’s green buyers. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the best practices, costs, and benefits associated with sustainable construction.
 
Serving as a technology test bed for Energy Environmental Corporation’s advanced integrated renewable HVAC designs and technologies, the home presents a new level for building science and sets a viable standard for low and net zero energy buildings.  A sample of tour features includes the following: geothermal water-air and water-water heat pumps fully integrated with solar hot water, hydronic floor systems designed for testing high and low mass radiant systems for heating and cooling, passive ground loop cooling that provides 12x the efficiency of conventional cooling, solar pv to power the HVAC systems, and solar thermal to provide BTUs for heating and hot water. Plus, who could forget to mention the passively cooled wine cellar?  More details on the eloquent design can be found at  http://www.platinumLEEDhome.com.        

The Platinum LEED Home will demonstrate how a holistic approach to building science coordinated with ENERGY STAR® programs can provide a competitive advantage. According to Al, “The Platinum LEED Demonstration home offers a new standard for builders seeking discrimination in a difficult market.“  In fact, the technology in this home is due to be implemented in a 110 home residential development in Elizabeth, Colorado, where each home will be certified LEED for Homes Gold by the USGBC and achieve net zero energy HVAC and domestic hot water consumption. As a prime example of best building practices, this tour is one not to be missed. Visit http://summit.smartenergyliving.org/ to register.
