The concept of a completely energy independent house sCarabane is based on the idea that all necessary for the functioning of the domestic systems can be obtained from solar energy. Therefore, the main function of this house is reduced to the rotation around its axis to capture and recycle the maximum amount of sunlight. And not only when using batteries.
Housing sCarabane arrives at the place of installation in the form of a container with a length of 7.8 m, and then expanded the efforts of one person for 30 minutes. It has a living room, two bedrooms, sanitary facilities and an outdoor terrace with a retractable awning. The whole structure is placed on a movable base and independently rotates to follow the sun, obeying the commands of the light sensors.
The system of collecting solar energy sCarabane, perhaps the most progressive in the world. Parabolic folding mirror area of 6 sq. m. focuses the light on the heating elements, ensuring the entire system free hot water for a shower, toilet and kitchen. Solar panel power of 500 W produces electricity for household appliances and radar system semi-transparent Windows allows you to adjust the amount of light and heat that come inside the rooms.
There is also a retractable mast of the wind turbine and prototype an Autonomous system of collection and treatment of rainwater. The authors of the concept sCarabane recognize – to fully appreciate the quality of their offspring succeed only in a small part of the climatic zones of the Earth. But this is a concept that on its basis to create real solutions. According to calculations, a full stand-alone housing that does not require any additional energy sources, it is realistic. Left to build it.
