One tonne life

An interesting project that's been gathering steam over the last few weeks has been Onetonnelife, an initiative between Volvo Cars, house designers A-hus and energy company Vattenfall. They have installed  a Swedish family  in a climate smart house for six months with the aim of lowering  average output of CO2  from 7 tonnes to one tonne per person  per year. The  eco-designed house  generates it's own energy from the sun, and even powers  the family's Volvo C30 electric car. Their journey is being charted through webisods, blogs and articles at Here is the trailer for the project with my voiceover:
