AMIE (Additive Manufacturing and Integrated Energy) is a system that demonstrates the integration of generating, using and storing electrical power by sharing energy between a building and a vehicle, both of which were built using the additive manufacturing process of 3D printing. The AMIE prototype structure was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill with collaboration from students and faculty from the UT College of Architecture and Design.  The structure and its companion vehicle were unveiled at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in September 2015. Visit for details on AMIE.

The panel discussion will be streamed live here.
