Alistair Sproul speaks at UNSW SPREE


Low carbon buildings are increasingly being proposed as a pathway towards reducing CO2 emissions.  Utilising greater levels of energy efficiency and distributed renewable energy such as rooftop photovoltaics or Building Integrated PV, low carbon buildings provide one of the quickest and lowest cost pathways for reducing CO2 emissions.  

In this seminar Associate Professor Alistair Sproul will describe some of the research being undertaken with the Low Carbon Living CRC.  Assoc. Prof. Sproul jointly leads the “Integrated Building Systems” research program with the LCL CRC.  In this seminar he will describe some of the research being carried out in the area of energy efficient buildings and PV/T systems, including an update on the energy performance of the Tyree Energy Technology building.
