The ventilation shafts of the windcatcher reach several feet above the roof to pull cooler outdoor air inside.

Solar panels extend down the sloped roof, capturing energy for heating and lighting the house.

The building's super-effective insulation is integral to the home's overall efficiency.

4. Biomass boilers

Biomass boilers run on low-cost, renewable organic waste material, such as compressed sawdust cast off from the timber industry.
