Abstract

With an energy export to import ratio of 1.75, Solcer House in Bridgend, south Wales, is the UK’s first purpose-built, affordable solar energy smart house capable of exporting more energy to the national grid than it uses. A joint education-business partnership based at Cardiff University with Swansea University, the project started in the fourth year of a five year funding plan when it was decided to test out the group’s ‘buildings as power stations’ idea. The team’s hopes are pinned on the 100m2 prototype as the answer to requirements for all new buildings to be zero-carbon by 2020.
