Event Description

The energy performance of the existing UK housing stock is generally very poor and an extensive retrofit programme that utilises the most energy efficient technologies and practices is the only foreseeable way for Greater Manchester and the UK to meet future decarbonisation targets. Not only is policy and regulation changing but technology is also rapidly evolving. This presents major challenges and opportunities for professionals involved in the design, execution and evaluation of retrofit projects.

The Energy House 2.0 Team at the University of Salford are running a series of online workshops specifically designed to meet needs of construction professionals (architects, consultants, surveyors and project managers) who wish to gain a deeper understanding of building retrofit. Each workshop will be 1-3 hours, focussing on a specific aspect of retrofit.

These on-line workshops will be facilitated by experts in their field with contributions from other specialists. Attendance is free of charge.

Session 4: Low Carbon Heat An exploration of the latest developments in delivering low carbon heat covering technologies such as heat pumps, biomass, solar thermal, green gases and district heating. Nigel Blandford, Researcher, Energy House 2.0, University of Salford

Over the last few decades, housing and construction have been representing one of the least eco-friendly industries in the UK. I hope this event could help to denounce this uncomfortable reality.

This is a really important event since many people have been ignoring the importance of plant biology in the fight against climate change and global warming.
