"Zero carbon ready" homes created in lab

Editorial Team

Researchers from Salford University are developing "zero carbon ready" homes in a laboratory. The Energy House 2.0 laboratory has two environmental chambers that are big enough to host two detached houses. The lab also offers the possibility to test different weather conditions to monitor the effects on the structure and building materials.

The main goal of the project is to develop NZEB houses which would respond to the climate change and energy savings needs.
