Further Information

Building envelopes have traditionally held a passive role in energy conservation. However, with new technologies and materials this passive role can be transformed into an active one. The Transpired Solar Collector (TSC) is a new technology that turns the building envelope into a solar energy capturing component, contributing to the heating of the building through mechanical ventilation in an efficiently controlled process. This course provides a basic understanding of the technology and the potential for its incorporation into the fabric of both existing and new buildings.

Who is it for?

This introduction is designed to be suitable for anyone involved in design and procurement within the Built Environment sector who is looking to reduce the carbon emissions of buildings through emerging building technologies.  This course would be suited to a range of built environment professions including architects, building engineers, building surveyors, building energy assessors and construction project managers.
