This CPD - Achieving zero carbon through a fabric first approach – will provide viewers with an understanding of the importance of achieving zero carbon and how widely available and cost-effective insulation technologies will help to achieve this. It outlines lambda, R and U-values, offers a comparison of insulation types and gives insight into regulations and voluntary schemes. A number of case studies demonstrate how PIR has been used to meet regulatory and voluntary scheme standards.
Suitable for anyone looking to learn about how to achieve zero carbon through a fabric first approach including specifiers, installers, clients and students, the CPD outlines why high performance insulation is one of the simplest and most cost effective ways to reduce energy demand and cut CO2.
