Low carbon event elicits green building solutions
September 28 2011
McLean, organiser of Environmental Modelling for a Low Carbon Scotland, observed: “I’d say they (the US) are at least 5-10 years behind us in terms of thinking and they certainly turn to those companies with a UK presence for experience.”
An open thought session in which delegates were invited to postulate posers saw Urban Realm table the following teaser: ‘How best can Scotland’s existing buildings be retro-fitted to meet 21st century environmental standards?’
It drew this response from one delegate: “I see lots of new/refurbished buildings consuming more energy than before.”
The responder went on to point out that a range of factors; including dark ceilings, lack of daylighting and high solar gains all had their part to play in meeting best practice.
