Das Haus Show April 13 - 22, 2012 in Toronto

From April 13 – 22, 2012, the DAS HAUS team welcomes green building professionals in Toronto to visit a 10-day exhibition on German sustainability technologies. The program offers a number of high-profile expert symposiums, networking functions and guided tours allowing visitors to discover new energy-efficient technologies and share perspectives on sustainable building practices.
The DAS HAUS conference The Net-Zero House – Learning from Canadian and German experiences is scheduled for Friday, April 13 from 12.30 – 5.30 pm. The conference speakers will discuss emerging opportunities for advancing green building and energy efficiency concepts.
Following a guided tour of the DAS HAUS pavilion, the conference will be held at the Allstream Centre.

Lighthouse Project in Denmark largest thermal energy storage

In the Danish Braedstrup currently Europe's largest borehole thermal energy storage arises seasonal combined with a huge solar thermal system. For this purpose, expands the existing solar field is strong, so that by the low heat demand in summer creates a large surplus of heat. To this energy in the winter to make use of a seasonal borehole thermal energy storage with 50 RAUGEO probes from PE-Xa is built, the stores at a depth of about 48 meters, the excess heat.
The operation of the store is simple: In the summer of the solar system circulates the heated water up to 85 ° C in the probes. It heats the surrounding area and creates a giant heat store. In winter, when the heat is then required for the municipal district heating, it is routed back into the circulating water and extracted via a heat pump.
The high temperatures that arise in the solar collectors, heat exchange system must be highly temperature-resistant to heat transfer into the soil. The leaders therefore decided to RAUGEO probes made from PE-Xa, because they can withstand high operating temperatures of up to 95 ° C. In combination with the REHAU compression sleeve jointing technique, they provide under these extreme conditions of long-term maximum security and are due to the specific material properties of PE-Xa highly resistant to dents, scratches and point loads. Working closely with Solites, Institute for long-term heat storage, as well as the local planning agencies PlanEnergi / GEO REHAU could contribute its extensive expertise in high-temperature probes from the start.
The first extension is not the end: It is planned to install in the final stage of the project, a total of 60,000 square meters of solar collectors and 300-400 probes for the storage of heat. So then a solar contribution of an estimated 60 percent of the total annual energy consumption is achieved.

Today I installed the Brine heat Exchanger in the intake Air of the HRV

Temperature inside house after Air passed through ground loop +9.1Celsius

After Brine loop heat exchanger +12.7 celsius
Measuring the intake Air of the Ground loop at -11.7 outside and + 9.1 inside  after going through the heat exchanger a further increase to + 12.7 Celsius this makes a difference of 24.4  degrees Celsius of free heat from the ground.
Temperature at outside Air intake

Pictures of how well our new insulated Blinds work

Our triple pane windows doing a good job blocking out  cold  the insulating blinds are perfecting it Wall is R 70 insulation value less than 1 degree difference.

Same Picture as above with Thermo imager camera almost same temperature as the R70 wall

See Picture below for proof of how well this Blinds work blocking cold out
