Zero energy house in practice
Our experience in constructing of energy and foodstuff autonomous (maximum possible) rural house
- Unboundedness - possibility to keep house's comfort without public energy.
- Hobby - eco technology and inventing.
- Collection - just interesting to have this stuff.
- And no more energy argues!
In August 2007 construction and building of the zero energy house has started in village Oreshak, situated in 12 kilometers from Varna (Bulgaria). The key element of this house is little energy requirements and production of own energy from green (sustainable) sources - like it is shown on the picture. Using renewable energy sources so that the house will be like part of the nature.

Environmental conditions and situation
Eco project chronicle
- The origin of our ecological project
The idea: independent lifestyle, self-directed living, autonomous household.
- "Free energy" for individual usage is an economical nonsense
Economical effectiveness of the energy from renewable sources (sustainable energy, green energy). Photovoltaic batteries, heat solar collectors, wind devices, heat pumps, eco-fuel stoves and heaters.
- Question: To be or not to be to the individual use of "Free energy"
Alternative energy should be economically profitable for us, and not only for energy saving commercial or industrial enterprises
- Sustainable energy usage and home-made energy system for concentration, transmutation, storage of energy.
Material base for house energy system
We have planned to use ready materials and construction elements, some devices and to adapt them
- The general problem of the autonomous house providing with energy from the renewable sources
Wind, solar, thermal energies are inconstancy. For the autonomous house the energy is necessary in the concrete time and in the concrete quantity.
- Lets add a little bit bionics into the energy system of autonomous house
Our autonomous house energy system must to be the omnivorous system.
- High temperature heat energy is not always necessary for house heating and other household needs
Country house needs is not only water at boiling point. Energy for home needs and its satisfaction via heat-storage battery of heat accumulators.
- Problems with supplying of the autonomous house with energy from the renewable sources: Solar collector inefficiency
Economical using of solar energy: solar heat collector faults. The honest designers of the house heating systems say, that solar heat collectors only help in heating and economize bio-fuel.
- Problems with the autonomous house powering with energy from the renewable sources:
Wind turbines and wind kinetic energy utilisation problems
The main problem of "helicopter-type" wind turbines is high price of working area. But ours sail wind machine has low cost work area and economically predestines for wind speed from 2-3 metre per second.

Encyclopedia: human culture, knowledge, information
The basis, the structure of the online encyclopedia are practical Wikipedia articles. You can think that this section is Wikipedia table of contents (according to the understanding of Envirociety`s author).
Fundamental human material needs are (including):
- food (incl. air and water)
- clean environment (INCLUDING around people, viz. these all these items)
- clothes, shoes
- household appliances and chemicals
Health (Or non-disease)
it would seem, key concept [b]Health[/b] in Wikipedia is not represented (within the meaning of in fact), but there is an Wikipedia`s article [b]Health[/b]. The concept of [/[b]health[/b] is replaced by the concept of [b]the risk of loss of health, ie disease[/b].
Wikipedia (mostly) understands under [i]health[/i] wellness methods, but not the concept of "health" and its criterions The aim of the author is to show health criterions. Articles-partitions in Wikipedia are:
Health criteria values
- Social determinants of health and Risk factor
- Mental health
- Maintaining health
- Diet: healthy diet, human nutrition
- (Physical) exercise
- Sleep deprivation
- Health science; medical sociology
- Role of public health
- Occupational health
- [b]WikipediaBook section Health[/b]
Naturally, bureaucratic WHO (World Health Organization of UN) has no materials on health criteria - I did not find the health criteria in WHO`s website.
HCV ([human] Health Criteria Values)
HCV in documents associated (mostly) with the risks associated with the environment (environmental pollution), as though the person placed on wildlife, automatically receives a 100 percent health. Therefore not find a better unblemished (100% accuracy) the definition of health is a non-disease.
And what is the disease? (Then there is health? :-)
The disease. It is unhealthy!
(Such a diagnosis is obtained for WHO.)
WHO, as well as all (mostly) Internet figures and plane figures on health advertise dependence (unknown) health from environmental pollution (in the democratic states ;-).
