Swansea University to get £36 million UK Government funding to develop clean energy innovation
UK Chancellor Philip Hammond has awarded £36 million to Swansea University to develop clean energy innovation.
This funding will be used to construct an Active Building Centre, with a primary aim of accelerating market adoption of new solar-powered building design.
UK buildings now account for around 40% of our energy consumption and associated carbon emissions, yet the way we create and operate buildings has not changed. They are still consumers of energy, not active and energy positive. Active buildings can save money on energy bills and contribute to a more sustainable world.
The Active Building Centre’s vision is to transform the UK construction and energy sectors, through the deployment of Active buildings powered by the sun, creating energy resilient communities, and significantly contributing to electric vehicle and decarbonisation targets.
