Austin's NexusHaus features rainwater thermal storage system

Ben Welter - Friday, March 20, 2015

Austin EcoNetwork says an 850-square-foot solar-powered house under development in Austin demonstrates the "creative thinking" needed to address the Texas city's limited access to local food, high energy demands, strained water resources and urban sprawl. NexusHaus, a collaboration of the University of Texas, the Technical University of Munich and the city of Austin, is designed to be an affordable solution. Features include "an integrated rainwater thermal storage system" that will shift cooling to off-peak hours and help cut energy consumption by about 80 percent during peak hours.
