Decarbonisation of the Built Environment
The programme has been launched to address the need to decarbonise society following the UK's stated aim to make an 80 per cent cut in carbon emissions by 2050. The built environment is the largest single emitter of CO2 and will need to be near fully decarbonised by this date. To help meet this target, fundamental concepts of low-carbon technologies will form the foundation of research carried out in the Centre.
