The Prêt-à-Loger team had another chance to present its cause on Friday, 23 May 2014 together with the Energy Club of TU Delft. The event itself which took place at the Aula of the TU Delft is called Energy Break, a lecture series that aims to bring together professors and students from all faculties to have lunch together once a month and update each other about the latest energy-related research at TU Delft.
The presentation was done by our Team Captain, David Jacome and our Faculty Advisor, Andy van den Dobbelsteen. The welcoming remarks were made by David, explaining the vision of Prêt-à-Loger and giving a short overview about our progress. Andy continue the presentation with a detailed explanation regarding how the ‘skin’ works to preserve energy and regulate the heat inside the house during the four seasons. Lastly, David continue the presentation with more elaborated details regarding the team, the construction phases and our preparation ahead of the Solar Decathlon 2014 competition this summer at Versailles, France.
The crowd was pretty enthusiastic about our project. There were some interesting questions regarding the project itself and how the team are going to bring it forward in the future. There were several team members also present in the event such as Rianne den Ouden, Andre Madian, Vasilis Tzimitras and Minyoung Kwon, ready to give more explanation about the project if needed.
Special thanks to the Energy Club team that invited us to present our cause for a more sustainable future!
