Low Carbon technologies have the potential to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of a building if specified where appropriate. This CPD provides an overview of all suitable building integrated renewables that produce electricity or heat buildings and water. The technologies covered are: PhotoVoltaics, wind generation, hydro, CHP, solar thermal, wood pellet and wood chip boilers, heat pumps and condensing boilers. Delegates will understand how these technologies work and the design and installation issues for retrofit as well as new build. Heating system design, fuel choice and efficient controls are also covered as is government policy to support renewable and the future of the UK’s energy mix.
