iUnit apartment arrives at the National Renewable Energy Lab

iUnit Brings 380-Square-Foot Modular Apartment to the ESIF to Evaluate Advanced, Multifamily Construction. Roughly 38 million people in the United States live in buildings that contain five or more units, totaling almost 18.5 million households. Increasing energy efficiency in America's multifamily apartment buildings, however, faces a number of challenges. Such challenges are largely due to immediate bottom-line approaches for multifamily construction, limitations to large photovoltaic (PV) systems, and a lack of access to data for residents, appraisers, and investors. Recognizing this, Denver developer iUnit is working with NREL researchers at the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) to employ the lab's apartment-in-the-loop research capabilities and energy modeling tools for enhanced energy efficiency while creating a modular apartment technology development platform for construction. The team aims to understand how a reduction in apartment-scale energy loads combined with energy storage can be scaled up to whole-building energy management. Researchers are also investigating energy storage opportunities that

Graywater Denver Article       We have made it a priority to focus on proper water use. Many of us forget the amount of energy that is needed to support our local water systems and finding a second use for that water would result in huge energy savings.  Our initial focus with Eliot Flats was incorporating smart water meters that can detect water leaks down to a leaking toilet. Next step with Champa Flats is figuring out how we can properly incorporate a graywater reuse system, stay tuned!
