Kelly, MJ (2010) Energy efficiency, resilience to future climates and long-term sustainability: the role of the built environment. Philos Transact A Math Phys Eng Sci, 368. pp. 1083-1089. ISSN 1364-503XFull text not available from this repository.
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 our 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 energy efficiency challenge, and was used in arguments to push for the Green Deal.|
