Solar Decathlon Europe: Eurotherm wins with RhOME

The most ecological and comfortable house is Made in Italy!
RhOME for denCity of RomaTre University took first place overall at Solar Decathlon Europe 2014, the prestigious Sustainable Architecture Olympiad, surpassing the other 19 teams from the most qualified universities around the world. The second-placed is France and third Holland.

RhOME, a home for ROME, is a project of low cost social housing, powered to the 100% solar energy that produces much more than it consumes. Inspired by the philosophy of Smartcity, aims to redevelop the run-down suburbs to create tomorrow's sustainable energy areas, socially and economically.

The under-floor heating at minimum thickness Zeromax is the system used for heating and cooling environments, combined with the new air handling unit Deuclima VMC, all managed by "smart" regulation Smartcomfort optimized for energy savings. The radiant system played a key role in winning the contests of House Functionning, Comfort and innovation. These were the last, decisive evidence to fly RhOME until the first place on the podium in this international edition of sustainable architecture.
