Solo Project

Overview

August marked the successful conclusion of the SoLow Project which The Electric Storage Company were proud to be part of.

SoLow is an Intertrade Ireland project that sought to push the boundaries of the construction industry in terms of reducing embedded carbon, increasing building performance, and reducing operating costs.

The project designed and built an A-grade building that has met RIBA and LETI 2030 carbon targets. @Sentanta Construction constructed the modular home at their site in Magherafelt with the whole building being assembled in a matter of hours.

The Electric Storage Company will install a sonneBatterie 10 into the building and will monitor for the next 12 months to demonstrate the energy efficiencies of the new house.
According to Mark Gribbin, Director at Setanta Construction says “Our newly launched ‘SoLow’ volumetric house aims to put energy performance at the heart of the housing market, delivering significant cost, time, health and environmental benefits for all. We’ve worked alongside industry experts in the design process including The Electric Storage Company to ensure outstanding functional performance throughout. Key components include 4kW of photo voltaic panels installed with an 11kw electric storage battery with heating and hot water provided by an integrated heat pump and ventilation system”.

“We’re fully convinced of the advantages of building off-site Passive Homes with low embedded carbon, but to fulfill our assurances to potential homeowners and industry professionals we’ve committed to undertake a detailed study to examine the full benefits in comparison to conventional builds and further explore what works well for the ultimate occupants and the environment we live in.”
