|The Green Register and AECB CarbonLite are pleased to be working together to provide four half-day technical sessions in Bristol on the Passivhaus principles. Although the full Passivhaus training is a fantastic way to gain an in depth understanding of all aspects of Passivhaus design, some construction professionals may not have the time or resources to be able to attend the typical Passivhaus two week course.
These half-day sessions offer insight into all the main principles i.e. what makes a good low energy, comfortable building based on the Passivhaus standard. The training is ideal for architects and other design professionals as the focus in these courses is on design principles.
The four sessions will be run by Peter Warm, Alan Clarke and Piers Sadler, all experts in the field.

|On the Path to Zero Carbon Housing
Elementa WGBW 2018 – On the Path to Zero Carbon Housing With 65 million residents in the UK, projections of 77 million by 2050 and an aggressive target to ensure all buildings are net zero carbon by 2050, what steps can the UK take to ensure housing reaches this goal? After the government abandoned the nationwide “zero carbon homes” policy in 2015, what is the current state of the market for driving sustainable residences and what should the construction industry do to push this? We will hear from an influential panel of prominent speakers currently involved in large housing schemes, their take on the success and pitfalls within the residential sector and contemplating why other sectors are moving rapidly ahead. Confirmed panel speakers include Linkcity and Hawkins Brown. Drawing upon net zero residential examples designed from Elementa’s global offices, we will further explore how the UK can be inspired by overseas solutions and examine what we can do to mirror these schemes that are already underway. Further speakers to be announced shortly.Agenda:
8:00-8.30am – Networking and breakfast
8.30-9.00am – Presentation
