UCL-Energy students present at sustainability workshop

18 May 2012


Three UCL-Energy PhD students will today present at the ‘Sustainability: Concepts and Materiality’ an interdisciplinary workshop hosted by the Anthropology Sustainability Reading and Research Group at UCL.

The workshop will draw people together who are working on sustainability and encourage interdisciplinary exploration and networking across UCL's faculties.

Carrie Behar will discuss “Sustainability and ventilation in UK housing- how can we ensure that the transition to sustainable ventilation technologies will result in the anticipated energy savings?” followed by Faye Wade on “The influence of central heating installers on space heating practices”.

In addition, Henrietta Lynch will also present a film, ‘The Works: Passivhaus at Ebbw Vale'. The film is about the technology transfer of Passivhaus components and skills from Germany to the UK, using the test Passivhaus development at The Works in Ebbw Vale, South Wales designed by Bere Architects as a case study.
