Salford University has Europe's first and only Energy House with a fully environmentally controllable chamber where climatic conditions can be maintained, varied, repeated and patterned monitored. Consumption of electricity, gas and water is also monitored throughout where the chamber itself has thermal and CCTV cameras, which continuously monitor the building. This facility provides a unique testing and development facility in which leading researchers can work collaboratively with industry to develop and test new technology and solutions to improve the energy efficiency of the existing projects and processes. The Energy House is a traditional pre-1920s Victorian terrace which represents 5.4m homes in the UK.
