TEAM COMPOSITION

The team includes students, technicians and research assistants and academics covering different qualifications range, PhD, MSc and BSc. All members are from the University of Bahrain, covering three college, these are:

College of Science
  • Department of Physics (Renewable Energy Laboratories)
  • Department of Biology
College of IT
  • Department of Computer Engineering
College of Engineering
  • Department of Electrical & Electronic
  • Department of Architecture interior design
  • Department of Civil Engineering

TEAM OBJECTIVES

  • Design a solution for existing houses to improve their energy consumption
  • Implement historical local architecture designs in smart modern solutions
  • Provide affordable solutions for existing households 

We are taking the concept of improving the insulation of the house which based on the wind tower mechanism. In this project, it is used for designing an innovative modern “air jacket” structure. The structure will provide electricity to the house to charge electric cars or other appliances required (depending on the energy capacity assessment of the structure). The heat dissipated on the outer surface of the “Jacket” will be used with the enhanced air circulation to provide additional electric energy using thermal and wind energy.

UNIQUE FEATURES AND INNOVATIONS The “Air Jacket” structure will help to reduce the household energy consumption and improve the insulation of the building. It will provide electricity to the house to charge electric cars or other appliances required (depending on the energy capacity assessment of the structure). The heat dissipated on the outer surface of the “Jacket” will be used with the enhanced air circulation to provide additional electric energy using thermal and wind energy.
