The popular Getting to Net Zero course is now available as on-demand videos plus a live online workshop.
The increased focus on the Climate Emergency has led to a stream of declarations to achieve Net Zero. But what does that actually mean to the built environment? Do we really know how to design and deliver a true net-zero building?
Based on the successful Passivhaus Masterclass, this tutorial series explores the issues around net zero, providing practical illustrations of what it takes to achieve both net zero operational energy and net zero embodied energy, and highlighting what can be done at design stage to achieve the biggest impact. It also explains how Passivhaus Classic, Plus and Premium can be used to support a net-zero design.
Passivhaus: the route to Net Zero?
How do buildings produce carbon and where are we now? Module 1 looks at the way in which energy is delivered and used in buildings and therefore how and where carbon emissions occur. It looks at the current emissions of UK buildings and how these have changed over recent years. The module then explains how our current regulatory system works and what level of performance we are currently building to.
