meaning ‘energy creation’ house
Soene House (meaning ‘energy creation’ house) is a model home designed to implement the concepts of the Eneos Soene Project, an initiative exploring home-based energy generation. (Eneos is the brand name used for products sold by Nippon Oil, Japan’s largest oil company.) Designed to help reduce CO2 emissions, the home is a study in how to effectively combine energy from natural sources with fossil fuel energy, and how to optimize energy use. Soene House uses Shirasukabe plaster material in its interior.
Today’s rising concern for the environment is resulting in a wide range of corporate R&D projects designed to create eco-friendly housing that helps reduce CO2 emissions through superior energy-saving properties. Shirasukabe has been used in some of the experimental housing created by these energy-saving projects.
