EPISODE 3: Waterproof breathable fabrics in low carbon EnerPHits at scale | December 9 at 2pm GMT

The third episode of the Building Performance Interactive, "Waterproof breathable fabrics in Low Carbon EnerPHits at scale", will focus on deep retrofit, carried out in a rigorous way to help achieve the EnerPHit target in humid climates such as the UK. This innovative approach to deep retrofit has been designed to be replicable, and carbon conscious, reducing the operational energy demand while minimising the embodied carbon impact.

The UK government has turned their focus recently on to embodied carbon in buildings and tackling the greater carbon impact of our buildings, rather than just the in use emissions. That can be a monumental task, how can one identify the carbon costs of mining, processing and transportation of materials? Does a timber double glazed window have a greater carbon cost if it is made of oak or made of pine? Is cladding better environmentally if it is green larch, or rendered woodfibre?
