3D-Printed Building Powered by Electric Car to be Unveiled at Industry Day

On Wednesday, September 23, 2015, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) will unveil a new project that “changes the way we think about generating, storing, and using electrical power” at the inaugural Industry Day event in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Known as the Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy demonstration project, AMIE is a 3D-printed high performance enclosure that produces and stores renewable power, and shares energy with a plug-in electric vehicle. AMIE leverages ORNL’s research capabilities and the innovation of numerous industry partners, including SOM, who is leading the design of the project.

Three SOM Partners will participate in speaking engagements as part of the two-day Industry Day event, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office on Efficiency and Renewable Energy. These participants include Philip Enquist, SOM Partner in Charge of Urban Design and Planning, Brian Lee, SOM Design Partner, and Keith Boswell, SOM Technical Partner. Through Industry Day, AMIE will engage participants in conversation about a clean energy economy.

AMIE is a result of the Governor’s Chair for Energy and Urbanism, a five-year collaboration between the University of Tennessee Knoxville, ORNL, and SOM. The Governor’s Chair is aimed at advancing a holistic vision for sustainability and resilience in the built environment through collaborative research, teaching, and public programming.
