The Z model from Energy Space is built to generate electricity through solar panels in its roof and owner Aaron Priestman, who has an MSc in environmen- tal architecture, says it is carbon neutral and energy can be diverted back to the main house or the grid when the garden office is not being used.
So many small prefabs and sheds on TreeHugger and other sites, but how many are zero energy and carbon neutral? Energyspace builds a state of the art work- space that makes a minimal or zero contribution to global climate change in every aspect of its design, construction, energy-use, and life cycle.
Energy Space have just opened their doors and those of you interested in green shedworking will be particularly interested to hear that its Z Energy Space model stands for zero energy and is built to generate electricity through solar panels in its roof.
A local consultancy wanted office space outside of the main house and ideally in their garden, rather than renting premises. The client wanted an office that was sustainable, but it also had to meet other needs in relation to comfort and functionality for work.
