Sheffield’s city centre, including the two university campuses, consists of buildings from many different periods. Retrofitting them to the highest possible environmental standards is essential to reduce our energy demand, and to cut our carbon emissions to the level required to keep the worst effects of global warming at bay. Furthermore, a programme of upgrading our housing stock and non-domestic buildings would reduce bills, provide employment and support the development of the local economy. At this retrofit evening we will hear from experts working in the field. We hope to provide a motivational boost to both the universities and to the city council by demonstrating the possibilities of a Passivhaus retrofit approach, including costs and practical advice.
Climate change background information:
For some climate change background and why we need energy demand reduction, please watch Prof Kevin Anderson's talk (47min) at our last 'Delivering on 2 degrees' event on our YouTube channel here. A detailed summary of his talk is also available on our website here.
We are looking forward to welcome you on Nov 9th!
Retrofitting your home will improve your quality of live, reduces your bills and it is necessary if we want to stop global warming.
Please come along, bring your questions and your friends and share the event with people you think would be interested.
Hope to see you all soon!
Your CNU coordinators
