The ZEB Pilot House, by international architecture outfit Snøhetta is a remarkable experimental home that makes an even more remarkable claim: thanks to incredible efficiency and ample solar panels, it’s said to generate almost three times the amount of electricity it requires – leaving plenty of surplus juice for charging an EV, for example.

In order to achieve this performance, the ZEB Pilot House features the proverbial kitchen sink of sustainable technology, including a large photovoltaic array, rainwater collection system, solar thermal panels, and an efficient heat exchanger. It doesn’t hurt that the home is easy on the eyes, too. The ZEB Pilot House’s performance is currently being monitored to make sure the claims of energy-efficiency are justified.
