A senior design group at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has completed the design, build, and testing of a small scale Zero Energy Building which will be used to demonstrate sustainable systems to area high school students. Power to the building is supplied by a solar panel while strip heaters are used to hold a temperature difference, controlled by a thermostat, with the local surroundings. Removable insulation was included in the design of the model to help students understand the magnitude of the increased power load needed when poor insulation is selected. This model was designed in conjunction with the Zero Energy Building that was created by UTC’s Center for Energy, Transportation, and the Environment at the Advanced Vehicle Test Facility located near the Chickamauga Dam.
