Following construction of the demonstration home the research, analysis and performance reports will be published. There is a host of research opportunities related to the Thermal Wall Technology; the list below represents a few of the main categories. Universities will be engaged to participate in setting up and conducting the research programs.

  • Amelioration performance of the structure due to the thermal mass.
  • Heat storage performance of the thermal mass.
  • Optimization of the heat input and infrared radiation aspects of the thermal mass.
  • Enhanced efficiencies of solar hydronic and passive solar systems.
  • Transfer capabilities of thermal energy throughout the structure.
  • Enhanced efficiencies of traditional heating systems.
  • Efficiency performance of night sky radiant cooling.
  • Electric off-peak load reduction benefits for thermal cooling for both radiant and conventional cooling systems.
  • Control system optimization.
  • Reduction in overall electric consumption.
