Biomass Greenhouse Handbook CCHRC produced a handbook for school districts about how to build and operate a biomass-heated greenhouse.
Thermal Storage Demonstration at CCHRC We're using a massive tank of water to store energy from the sun. Click here for live data!
Thermal Mass Study Thermal mass is the ability of a material to absorb and store heat energy, which can be useful when it comes to cold climate housing. This project clarifies the role of thermal mass in housing and includes a literature review and energy modeling with IDA Indoor Climate and Energy (ICE) software.
Hybrid Micro-Energy Project This project was designed to explore and demonstrate how a variety of renewable energy sources can be integrated to power single- and multi-family housing energy demands in Alaska.
Combustion Air/CO Study This study looked at how homeowners provide combustion air for atmospherically vented appliances and assessed the performance of power-vented appliances.
