Phil Jones and Jane Davidson Designing Low Carbon Homes: Lessons from Practice
A conference at the Welsh School of Architecture
Friday 14th October 2011

‘Designing Low Carbon Homes: Lessons from Practice’ will focus on the definitions, standards and challenges of delivering zero carbon homes in Wales. Since the announcement of the zero carbon ambition in 2008, the construction industry has seen a severe downturn that has impacted on all sectors. This conference will attempt to address the delivery of zero carbon housing in this challenging economic climate. As part of an ongoing project to provide guidance to the industry, three key questions will be posed:

- How should we be building?
- To what standard?
- At what cost?

The conference will disseminate the early findings of the Low Carbon Research Institute’s Low Carbon Built Environment programme work package, ‘Design of Low/Zero Carbon Buildings’. Registration for the conference will be charged at £10 per attendee; non-attendance once registered will incur a further £30 charge.
