"At the cutting edge of research", the words used by Climate Change Minister, Greg Barker, when he officially opened Europe’s 1st Energy House within a fully controllable environment. Salford Energy House provides a platform for academics to collaborate with industry in the development of products to reduce the carbon emissions from our 21 million existing homes, which account for 26% of UK carbon emissions.
Carbon emissions from housing accounts for 26% of UK carbon emissions and one in five households in the UK are in fuel poverty. To develop products to reduce the carbon emissions, the University of Salford developed the Salford Energy House project to act as a collaborative platform for academia and industry. It is Europe’s first Energy House within a fully controllable environment. At a national level, the Energy House has contributed to the work of BRE National Refurbishment Centre, UK’s centre for retrofit. The university has run two major retrofit conferences related to the Energy House, brining together academia, industry and policymakers. At a local level, the project supports the work of Greater Manchester Low Carbon Economic Area.
