Just under half of all energy consumption in the UK today takes place indoors, and over a quarter within our homes. The challenges associated with energy security, climate change and sustainable consumption will be overcome or lost in existing buildings. A background analysis, and the scale of the engineering challenge for the next three to four decades, is described in this paper.
|Additional Information:||This paper summarises the scale of the challenge of meeting carbon emission reduction targets from energy consumption in the built environment, in a form that has attracted the attention of Government Ministers. Indeed a pilot programme to retrofit several Government owned buildings in Central London followed directly from this work, to serve as exemplars to the wider public. The paper also led to a £10M TSB project to retrofit 100 domestic dwellings, the part of the built environment identified as the biggest challenge, and was used in arguments to push for the Green Deal.|
