The Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE)
The Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE) project brings Welsh academics and industry together to reduce carbon dioxide emissions associated with the built environment.
The programme targets the built environment sector at all scales from component to building to region. It will also include all stages of the built environment process from planning through design and construction to operation.
New and existing buildings will be considered and the performance of different building related technologies will be monitored. In addition the process of innovation, technology deployment and market development will be examined.
The Low Carbon Built Environment project is part of the Low Carbon Research Institute.
We're investigating the low carbon built environment, architecture and its historical and cultural context, design research and more.
