The Green Leaf INN Green Building Challenge
Energy Management Controls
Design an Energy Management Control System, providing a strategy and product selection to control, manage and gather data on an integrated renewable energy system for the Green Leaf Inn (GLI).
Your design will require the integration of three different solar thermal systems; a cogen system, geothermal system, and a wood-fired boiler, to be combined with a 1,250 gallon thermal storage system insulated to R-80, providing heat and cooling for this historic first Net Zero Energy Hotel.
The winning control strategy will be judged on style, cost and data presentation. The winner will receive extensive ongoing publicity and will be featured in an online webinar, discussing their strategy and promoting their company; available online as part of the historic data marking the building of the GLI as presented by GreenBuildTV.com. In addition, the winner will be featured in other resource materials including whitepaper, press release, newsletter article and video documentation. Documentation will remain online for up to one year after grand opening, with an approximate value of more than $5,800.
