About this event

The expedition to the myth of Zero-Carbon buildings is getting challenging. When it comes to the domestic energy reductions the consumers’ opinions and use of energy consumption is unexpectedly different.

The quest to build zero-carbon homes is plagued by controversy, but as Tony James discovers it is vital to a lowcarbon future. When people think of making reductions in carbon dioxide emissions, it is customary to look at power generation, heavy industry and transport - especially planes and cars.

However, buildings contribute half the carbon dioxide emissions from the UK, and homes make up a significant part of that. Over 27 per cent of all carbon dioxide emissions in the UK are from family homes. This talk will present the past research promises and predicted outcomes in the struggle of reducing energy consumption in UK, the current challenges from research to practical implementation of technologies and future in the scope of Zero-Carbon Buildings.
