"Is meant to produce more energy than it consumes."

Harvard's Centre for Green Buildings and Cities shows off HouseZero, a home designed to produce more energy than it consumes.

FWe’re moving away from all those definitions to the inherent and most important aspects of what buildings should have: ultra-efficiency. We would like that efficiency to be translated to different metrics, from social issues to aesthetics and resource use. Once you have that, technology becomes a layer you can add. As better technology comes along, you can produce even more, if you wish to. But you want it to consume as little as possible. For me, I have been advocating from the beginning that, rather than energy production, it’s energy reduction we should look at. We should start from the demand and how you can make the demand as efficient as possible.

Some other interesting news: reportedly the American dream is dead. Meanwhile, CRISPR 2.0 is out. Lastly, Space Marines will be a thing.
