House 2035

House 2035 is a project managed by National Technology Enterprises Company (NTEC).

NTEC was awarded the House 2035 project by Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW) to build a prototype house using renewable energy technologies. NTEC considers House 2035 a tool for technology transfer in the renewable energy field that can be applied in Kuwait. This report discusses the intended operational plan for House 2035. NTEC will use this house as an exhibitory mock-up and the technologies demonstrated in the house will operate for a five-year period. PAHW envisions House 2035 as a model project for Kuwait’s future residential housing design and construction.

Project Aim

To develop and implement a smart eco-house with high-efficiency technologies that lowers energy consumption on Kuwaiti citizens and for PAWH to implement this model house for future constructed houses. This will be demonstrated through installed monitoring systems that allow measurement of energy and water consumption which can then be translated and analyzed for PAHW to implement on upcoming constructed houses. 

The commencing measures will start once the house is ready and is open to the public in September 2019.

Objective A

To upgrade PAHW’s standard housing construction into, up-to-date sustainable housing utilizing local market available technologies. Under the condition that all implemented technologies not to increase the construction value by more than 30% as per PAHW standard cost.

Objective C

This house will become as a Model House for all Kuwaiti Citizens, demonstrating that a Low Energy House with the available modern technologies can be achieved with average cost. The house is also aimed to be a point of attraction for students for educational purposes. Governmental entities can also refer to the information produced from progress reports of the house for R&D (research and development) studies.

Objective B

Several technologies have been implemented into the new house. The main three pillars for the selected technologies are Availability, Affordability and Sustainability.

Objective D

Energy, Water Environments, Indoor Air Quality and Waste Management plans were the main sustainability criteria for the technologies implemented in the house.

Facts

Home 2035 has 58% reduction in energy consumption compared to conventional houses

Energy reduction is guaranteed with an insulated envelope, high performance air-conditioning system and highly efficient windows.

The Solar photovoltaics installed at Home 2035 can produce over 19MWh/annually.

The shower recycling system can save up to 195 Gallons per day

The grey water treatment plant can save up to 888 Gallons per day

Installment of water fixtures saves up to 109 Gallons per day

The solar water heaters eliminates 333 kWh/annually.

The Energy Use Intensity (EUI) is reduced by 34 kWh/m² when 10 kW is produced from the solar panels.

The payback period for the technologies at Home 2035 is less than 10 years!

107 tons of CO2 will be reduced annually as an advantage of the energy consumption reduction.

Home 2035 has 25+ modern day technologies that save electricity and water while reducing carbon footprint.

The main three correlating pillars to New Kuwait 2035’s Vision for the selected technologies for home 2035 are Local Market Availability, Operational Sustainability and Kuwaiti National Affordability

Technologies

Rooftop PV Power Station & Carport Power Station

Solar PV panels on grid systems were integrated on to the roof and carport shade of the house. The combined power of the panels can produce and supply the house with 10kWp. The technology used is Canadian bi facial solar panels to have maximum production. The system is made of 3 phase inverters forming a solution protected by over running voltage protection and a Solis export power manager. This is the first time that the bifacial solar system has been installed in Kuwait and for the smart house of 2035.
Bifacial modules produce solar power from both sides of the panel. Whereas traditional opaque-back sheeted panels are monofacial, bifacial modules expose both the front and backside of the solar cells. When bifacial modules are installed on a highly reflective surfaces, Canadian solar bifacial module manufacturer claim up to a 30% increase in production just from the extra power generated from the rear, Most use monocrystalline cells, but there are also polycrystalline designs.
A constant advantage of using the Bifacial Solar system is that power is produced from both sides. True bifacial modules have contacts on both the front and back sides of their cells. The challenge with bifacial has always been the unpredictability of the power output because it is dependent upon the substrate behind the modules of a white commercial roof, a dark comp shingle, grass, gravel, it’s hard to model what the module is going to produce. The System also includes high-quality components that are tested and certified to the highest quality standard and are designed for optimal durability and performance for up to 25 years – and beyond.
