Net-Zero Energy Dementia Friendly eco-homes of the future

 Speaker: Mr Clayton McDowell, Student Leader for Team UOW Australia’s entry to the Solar Decathlon Middle East Competition

 Team UOW Australia is a unique collaboration between the University of Wollongong, University of Wollongong in Dubai and TAFE NSW. In 2013 Team UOW competed in China in the international Solar Decathlon competition which challenges collegiate teams from across the world to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. Team UOW with their “Illawarra Flame” house won the competition and holds the world record for the highest points ever scored after 12 competitions and 224 international teams. This time Team UOW will be competing in Dubai and their house, “Desert Rose” aims to encompass the needs of an ageing population. The house will celebrate the life of its occupants regardless of their physical capabilities, from the very active and capable through to those experiencing aged-related disabilities such as early stage dementia.

 This briefing will include:

  • The Solar Decathlon Competition – empowering students to solve society’s biggest problems.
  • World record success of the Illawarra Flame House at Solar Decathlon China competition
  • Introducing the Desert Rose House – a new concept in dementia friendly sustainable living
