Getting More from Less

New window technology, and vastly superior heating and cooling systems. Offices will accomplish the same. And the zero-energy home that produces more power than it uses to provide services to residents will become increasingly common and sought after in the mainstream residential real estate market.

Goal To increase your homes value

Suppose you're planning to sell your house five years down the road. If you put in a solar water heating system, at that point in time the savings from the new system will be 48 per month, or 600 per year. A home buyer will pay more for the home when you sell it because of this built-in cost reduction. How much more The following factors come into play i Most home buyers take out a mortgage, and balancing monthly

Preparing for Climate Shifts

For continued flexibility and to understand building conditions, continued monitoring is necessary. Most people take their car in for an oil change and checkup every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. Most homes don't fare as well. People have a home inspection completed prior to purchasing a house and that is it until the house is sold or develops problems. I would like to suggest a routine checkup every 15 months. This means it will be looked at in each of the different seasons once every five years. This is not the same type of inspection you would have done when purchasing a home, which is basically an inspection to identify what's broken. This would be a performance inspection to keep your home in tune and ready to protect you as best it can when extreme weather events occur.

Project Financing

HomeWORD has not been able to identify the exact percentage of increase. Although the ground source heat pumps cost more than HVAC systems typically used in affordable housing, the system was chosen early in the planning process on the basis of the energy modeling results, and its cost was not compared with that of alternative possibilities. Because homeWORD has a mission to help move the local housing market toward more sustainable projects, the additional cost was seen as part of achieving this larger vision. Architect Don MacArthur states that, currently, building green affordable housing takes so much energy and passion and persistence, but as more begin to do it, it will start to infiltrate the awareness of regulatory and financial institutions. He notes that requirements for Montana's low-income tax credits are being rewritten to provide incentives for sustainable measures. When others see that the funding exists, they also may be willing to try green building, and it will...

Rod Tyers and Iain Bain

During the past decade, reference to China in the financial and academic press has lauded its growth performance but tended to emphasise its exchange rate regime and its controversial current account surpluses with the United States and the European Union (see, for example, Tung and Baker 2004 Bernanke 2006 Lardy 2006 Mckinnon 2006 Xiao 2006 Callan 2007 Woo and Xiao 2007 Tyers et al. 2008). After the downturn in the US housing market in 2007, however, and the associated credit squeeze in the United States and Europe,

Home Harvest Loop Missoula Montana

The work of Montana-based nonprofit developer homeWORD is guided by a vision to develop innovative yet replicable housing that achieves affordability through sustainable, holistic methods. Over ten years, each of homeWORD's eight completed projects (a total of 94 rental units and 14 homes) has continued to build on experience gained in past projects. HomeWORD's projects demonstrate a growing understanding of the connections between affordability, community revitalization, and reducing long-term environmental costs through green building strategies such as smart land use, resource and energy efficiency, waste reduction, and community sensitive design. HomeWORD aims to help transform its local housing market by modeling replicable solutions for the construction industry.

Risks Of Blind Extrapolation Ii

Homes they cannot really afford, while simultaneously creating a housing boom and rising real-estate prices. Meanwhile many of the risky mortgages have been packaged into mortgage-backed securities and sold to investors around the world. The rather sudden discovery that these securities are nowhere near as safe as they were advertised to be, has already caused the virtual collapse of one savings bank in the UK. As of this writing (October 2007), other financial ripples are feared. And the US housing market, booming until spring 2007, has also suffered a dramatic setback.

Assessing the Compensating Differentials Approach

Conversely, the hedonic approach may overemphasize environmental threats that people think are real but that scientists believe are minor. Continuing with this earlier example, if home buyers greatly fear proximity to power lines, then homes located near them will sell for a deep price discount. If electromagnetic field exposure poses no real threats to households, then environmental scientists and the public might have opposite views on a given community's environmental quality.

The Supply Of Fresh Water

Manna would vary with its distance from the deposits. This is consistent with the Von Thuenen model in which location is everything. What has value - what is scarce relative to demand - is not the manna, which is superabundant, but either (1) residential real estate close to the sources of manna or (2) the labor and technology needed to transport manna to where it is consumed.

New Orleans projected flood losses

Based on an analysis of National Flood Insurance Program aggregate data, US Census data, and insurance market data, an estimate of the insurance industry's likely proportion of the total economic flood loss was determined. For residential properties, it was assumed that 50 of the residential structure and contents losses would be taken up by the NFIP, while the remainder would be largely uninsured, with less than 3 of the residential loss attributable to excess NFIP residential coverages. Subsequent surveys showed that between 34,000 and 35,000 of the flooded homes carried no flood insurance, including many that were outside designated flood risk zones (Hartwig, 2006).

Building a sustainable housing movement

Builders and academics, who shared many of the New Economics values of human-scale development, self-reliance, decentralisation and empowerment (Smith, 2007). Their activities tended to emphasise renewable material and energy sources, low-polluting materials, a concern with the overall lifetime impacts of the house (i.e. occupation impacts as well as construction impacts), and autonomy. In particular the experimental niche nature of much of this development lent itself to self-build by owner-occupiers, in contrast to the mainstream housing market where speculative mass-produced housing is the norm. The Centre for Alternative Technology was established in Wales in 1973 as a test-bed and showcase of renewable energy and appropriate technologies, community living and self-sufficiency. It later turned to public education and outreach as a means of spreading its ideas and lessons, and is still running extensive visitor programmes today, albeit in a quite altered mainstream context which...

Bear Market of

As this is written in early 2008, the U.S. housing market is imploding and the dollar is falling versus gold, oil, and most foreign currencies. The budgets of the U.S. federal government and most states are deeply in deficit, with spending cuts and or tax increases inevitable. And Wall Street is in chaos. Venerable investment bank Bear Stearns has collapsed, and hedge funds, mortgage lenders, and homebuilders are closing their doors on a daily basis. But this turmoil is just the surface manifestation of a more serious illness that might unsettle the financial markets and make optimistic investment themes like clean tech a hard sell for several years. To put it bluntly, we've made a mess of the global financial system, and it's crucial for would-be clean-tech investors to understand how we got here and how big the coming dislocations might be. So let 's take a brief detour into the world of finance for a look at why the United States and possibly the global economy are in such...

Whats Next

Designers throughout the country are also revisiting the concept of modular housing. A number of approaches are being developed, all with the goal of using manufacturing efficiencies to reduce overall construction costs, improve construction quality, and reduce environmental impacts. Examples include the Eco-Mod home designed by students at the University of Virginia for the Charlottesville Habitat for Humanity affiliate, and a prototype constructed in Gulfport, Mississippi, by Unity Homes (a project of Healthy Building Network) in partnership with the North Gulfport Community Land Trust (NGCLT). If implemented on a large scale, there is the potential to provide factory-built homes for the affordable housing market that cost less than conventional site-built models, with the added benefits of energy efficiency, healthy building materials, and reduced waste.

Apparent Losses

Of typical free market commodities, payment is based upon the volume of product or service delivered. Yet, the use of customer meters and usage-based billing is far from universal in the water industry in the United States or the world at large. For a large portion of public water supply customers, service is provided without any measurement of their actual water usage and billings are based upon flat rate charges assigned by customer user type. In the United States, perhaps only one-half of all users have water meters, with sentiments regarding metering sharply divided in certain areas of the country. In England and Wales, traditionally only the industrial, commercial, and institutional (ICI) customers were metered. Environmentalists and regulators support the establishment of universal residential customer metering, and a slow transition is occurring with meters being installed in new construction and upon customer request. Approximately 25 of all residential properties were metered...

Property Values

The Renewable Energy Policy Project (REPP) conducted a quantitative study of property values in 2003 based on examination of over 25,000 property transactions. The REPP evaluated residential property values at 10 wind power projects (10 MW and larger) throughout the nation built between 1998 and 2001. For this study, data were gathered within 5 miles of the wind projects, which was determined to be the potential area of visual impact. In general, the REPP report concluded that commercial-scale wind turbines do not appear to harm viewshed property values. Specifically, the report found that for the majority of projects the property values increased more quickly in the viewshed than in the surrounding community.

Economic growth

There are strong signs that the global economy, which has expanded briskly in recent years, is slowing, partly as a consequence of higher energy and other commodity prices and the financial crisis that began in 2007. GDP growth has already fallen in most OECD economies, particularly in the United States, where a slump in the housing market has contributed to the credit squeeze, the consequences of which are being felt throughout the global financial system. Many OECD countries are now on the verge of recession. Most non-OECD countries have so far been less affected by financial market turbulence and have continued to grow rapidly, led by China, India and the Middle East (where growth has been boosted by surging oil-export revenues). This momentum is provided by strong productivity gains as these countries progressively integrate into the global economy, by improved terms of trade for commodity producers on the back of soaring prices for oil and other raw materials and by policy...
