- In December 2011, several CAER administrators and outreach staff toured the 'HBEER' prototype modular home (Video: HBEER: Project Overview) with Tom Manning-Beavin of Kentucky Highlands Corporation to see an example of a finished house. This house is one of two prototype structures (Video: HBEER: Prototype Tour) built during the past year in a project to develop highly energy-efficient, relatively low-cost houses that may be built at southern Kentucky factories that ordinarily produce houseboats. CAER's Development and Community Engagement (DCE) Associate Director Sheila Medina worked with the UK College of Design on the efficiency goals. Greg Copley, CAER Regional Representative, was involved in obtaining DOE funding through the Energy Efficiency Community Block Grant that is being administered by the Department for Local Government.
