Engaging communities - making houses warmer

.. because every house can be made warm and comfortable
There are countless millions of people across the world living in cold, damp, draughty houses.
The sustainable solution to this is Energy Conservation (not Energy Generation).
The key to Energy Conservation in homes is Insulation and Air Tightness, coupled with habit changing.
High-performance insulation and air tightness systems when correctly installed will dramatically reduce the energy required to keep a home at a comfortable temperature.
When I say 'reduce' I mean to a small fraction of what the fuel bills used to be - indeed potentially remove the need for additional heating altogether - i.e. near to 'Passive House' (Passiv Haus) standard.
On this website you'll see how to achieve this.
Much of the information is free to download and free to use.

Sustainable Ecological Engineering Design for Society, Conference 13-14 September 2017
Andy Walker gave a Keynote Speech at the SEEDS conference - "Healthy environments, buildings, and spaces" - on the subject of tackling Fuel Poverty at a Community level. The speech described how the Guidance Manual described on these pages will be updated in collaboration with the Climate, Environment, Buildings & Energy group (CeBE) at Leeds Beckett University and Leeds Environmental Design Architects (LEDA).
