Twilight Talk April – recording and slides

We welcomed to The Green Register’s April Twilight Talk Steph Willis, Data Scientist with SERO and Julia Bennett, architect and co-director at The Green Register to lead the debate on how extensive fabric improvements should be before a heat pump is installed. As expected, the discussions with our audience were lively and it was interesting to see how the data on carbon savings, cost benefit and comfort in various scenarios of fabric intervention may influence the decisions we may make in future projects.

If you were unable to join the latest Twilight Talk session or would like to watch again, you can see a free recording of the event below. All previous Twilight Talks are on our YouTube page. You can access the presentation here.

If you’re looking for more on building performance or to optimise building services, don’t miss these upcoming training events:

  • Tools for Net Zero and Lifecycle Analysis on 25th April with Lilly Ingleby and David Speddings of Race Cottam Associates, who will offer a practical perspective on delivering net zero projects and consider the environmental impacts of materials in designing for low embodied carbon buildings.
  • On 26th April, join us for Designed to Perform – design guidance on better performing homes. Tom Dollard, partner and sustainability expert at Pollard Thomas Edwards addresses the performance gaps in buildings and how to eliminate these at design stage for energy efficient homes. Designed to Perform is also the title of Tom’s new book, upon which the seminar is based – and your event fee includes a copy of this essential guide!
  • Last on the list, but definitely not least, we’re delighted to introduce the first in our five-part Building Services series, kicking off on 18th May with Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery (MVHR) where Tom Heywood of Green Building Store and Ben East of Earthwise Construction will bring a strong practical focus to MVHR design, performance and installation.
