Over on sister site Green Building Elements, where he is now the editor and site director, Glenn has a post on a great new home from LivingHomes and Brad Pitt’s Make It Right organization. The zer0-energy home, to be debuted at an upcoming TED Conference, looks beautiful:

Check out our new 93-page EV report, based on over 2,000 surveys collected from EV drivers in 49 of 50 US states, 26 European countries, and 9 Canadian provinces.

About the Author

is tryin' to help society help itself (and other species) with the power of the typed word. He spends most of his time here on CleanTechnica as its director and chief editor, but he's also the president of Important Media and the director/founder of EV Obsession, Solar Love, and Bikocity. Zach is recognized globally as a solar energy, electric car, and energy storage expert. Zach has long-term investments in TSLA, FSLR, SPWR, SEDG, & ABB — after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in these particular companies and feels like they are good cleantech companies to invest in.

  • I’ve often wondered if we wouldn’t be better off in the short term investing in energy effienct technologies that are already out there instead of dumping lots of money into some technologies that may not even make it commercialized. This seems like a good example of what I’m talking about.

    • Yeah, I think energy efficiency, with what we have now, could use a lot more investment. Have seen the case made that it should be our #1 priority.

        Hey Zach,
        Without a doubt “energy efficiency” is the lowest hanging of all the fruit on the energy tree. While it can’t solve the energy problem by itself it can add some “squiggle room” which would ease some of the pressure (a pressure that, sadly, our ‘leaders’ don’t seem to get)

        That being said, I’m sure that if this building practice was widely adopted we could be well on our way to a better day.

        Great post…

        • Certainly. Took me awhile to realize its potential, but it has risen to the top for me. Sooo much potential.
