Design, guidance, energy modelling and post construction evaluation for low-carbon building design and retrofits, particularly using passive, bioclimatic methods combined with low and zero carbon technologies.
This retrofit project in Oxford targeted reductions in energy consumption of 85% by using an optimum mix of energy demand-reduction measures and well-proven zero-carbon technologies.
Transformational changes have been made to the house to bring about highly efficient energy use, and improve the quality of living for residents.
This retrofit project follows a ‘low-energy first then low-carbon’ approach by encouraging energy demand-reduction measures first, and then deploying a nominal level of well-proven zero-carbon technologies that can be easily integrated into the urban fabric.
