TAIPEI, Taiwan, Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past 2 years, more than 43 Taiwanese companies have joined the Taiwan Green Demo House to showcase their eco-friendly products and innovations to people around the world. TGDH is, essentially, an environmentally friendly, reusable exhibition show booth made entirely of state-of-the-art materials that have been certified by both domestic and international green standards. TGDH is built entirely of green materials that are much like Lego bricks, making assembly and disassembly very easy and flexible. In addition, this innovative green demo house cuts down on waste without sacrificing any style.
TGDH is based on three key principles: it is "modular", "easy-to-assemble", and "reusable". In addition, it has been designed specifically to present the use and application of high-quality green products and services in a "realistic" way. Namely, TGDH enables visitors to experience the full benefit of each product displayed, just as if they were in a real home, office, or retail space.
In addition, TGDH utilizes the advanced building-energy-modeling software IES-VE to ensure that the best energy-saving strategies are employed for an entire setting (http://www.iesve.com/software/case-studies/info?building=The-Taiwan-Green-Product-Demo-House&id=4674). IES-VE analyzes a number of different inputs, including climate data, building design, and HVAC design, among others, to calculate a building's energy consumption and anticipated energy bills. It then proposes energy-saving strategies based on the return-on-investment (ROI) of the application of energy-saving products.
For example, by replacing a building's ceiling and walls with NexPower's thin-film PV modules, harmful radiation can be filtered out, heat can be blocked, and clean energy from the sun can be generated, enabling a total energy savings of up to 23 percent. By installing Dresden Glass's energy-saving glass, reductions in temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees can be achieved and up to 50+ percent of noise can be blocked, resulting in a reduction of 12 percent in total energy savings. In addition, LaRose, one of Taiwan's major LED suppliers, has also become known for being a reliable lighting-solutions partner, especially when it comes to quality and price competitiveness. By installing its LED dimmer bulb series, energy savings of up to 16 percent can be achieved. With the help of SunValue's solar-power brick, solar energy from various angles can be easily absorbed by the brick's light-guiding material, yielding energy savings of up to 12 percent. These bricks can also be integrated into existing buildings and are ideal for vertical installation. And by equipping Paradigm's reactance filter to the power source of a home, store, factory, or even a high-voltage facility with up to a world-leading 20,000KVA, harmonic distortion can be filtered out, electromagnetic interference can be removed, and circuits can be stabilized, producing energy savings of at least 12 percent.
TGDH also features several of the newest smart, eco-friendly innovations. Heatax's insulation coating, for example, has been widely hailed for having the highest cost-to-performance value of all thermal insulation paints in Taiwan. In specific, it can reflect up to 88 percent of solar heat; it is easy to use for DIY-projects; it is made to be long-lasting; and, most importantly, it is very affordable. And Nustone is a one-of-a-kind building material that can transform ordinary surfaces by giving them the look and feel of stone, with less difficulty and less expense. It is essentially a new generation of spray paint that creates a genuine stone-like surface of granite, marble, or quartzite, among many others.
In addition to exhibiting in the 2015 Taipei Building Show, TGDH is scheduled to attend Qatar's International Construction Tech & Building Material Exhibition in 05/2016, and Singapore's Build Eco Expo BEX in 09/2016. For more information, please visit: www.greentrade.org.tw.
