The Zero Carbon Yorkshire buildings working group becomes the AECB Yorkshire Group!
The Zero Carbon Yorkshire Buildings working group has become the AECB Yorkshire group and is made up of a wide range of building professionals, businesses, activists and academics from across the Yorkshire region. The group meets three times a year in Leeds and has identified the following areas to work on initially:
- Promotion of Passivhaus low energy building standard (for newbuilds) to local authorities and housing associations within Yorkshire.
- Exploring solutions to the financial, political and technical challenges posed by the need to undertake radical retrofits of existing buildings within Yorkshire.
- Promote low carbon building and showcase local exemplar projects within Yorkshire through conferences and websites.
- Exploring appropriate low carbon energy sources for ultra low energy buildings
Ideas and suggestions for the group are very welcome.
The administrator of the group is Chayley Collis, who is Communications Manager at Green Building Store.
