Jump to: navigation, search

The Zero Carbon Yorkshire Buildings working group is made up of a wide range of building professionals, businesses, activists and academics from across the Yorkshire region. The group meets bi-monthly in Leeds and has identified the following areas to work on initially:

  • Promotion of Passivhaus low energy building standard 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.

Ideas and suggestions for the group are very welcome. Contact the administrator of the group: chayley@greenbuildingstore.co.uk
