In order to fulfill future energy needs, a requirement for innovative approaches to dwellings and transportation is crucial, which is why the 'Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy' Project helps to broaden how we think about human lifestyles.

Created by researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the 'Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy' Project features a home outfitted with solar panels; the home will store energy and channel it to the home or the vehicle depending on what needs it most.

The 'Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy' Project approach helps to broaden our understanding of how we can live a modern lifestyle to utilize renewable energy sources to help life cleaner, more efficient lives that don't deviate too far from what residents of North America are accustomed to.
