Organiser: Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce
Location: University of Salford
Salford University has constructed the past to save the future; Salford Energy House is an "old-build" traditional Salford style house, c1920's, constructed from reclaimed materials and as such represents 20% of all of the UK's current building stock.
The Energy House has been constructed within an environmentally controllable laboratory in which levels of heat, light, humidity and even wind can be independently adjusted and managed; enabling the development and testing of new low-carbon materials, technologies and products. It provides a vital research facility for all those involved in the low carbon and retrofit agenda.
Climate Change Minister Greg Barker has praised the university for creating the facility and described it as being at the "cutting edge of research" before describing The Energy House as being "a house from the past, working for the future."
