The TradesmanNow have repurposed the periodic table. The periodic table, or the periodic table of elements, is a tabular arrangement of the chemical elements. But here this table highlights the key elements of a sustainable house design.
It is an easy to digest format, in order to empower individuals to take actionable change towards reducing global warming. Each element in the table represents each factor in the environment. For Example:
Sp - solar panels,
Sh - solar hot water,
Og - off the grid batteries,
Hg - low solar heat gain,
Rw - rainwater tanks,
Tm - High thermal mass,
Wt - residential wind turbine,
Et - evergreen trees.
94.2% of energy was produced using non-renewable resources in Australia in 2016. In Australia, the main living spaces should face to the north to maximize the heat from the sun during winter.
