The Active Building Centre

The Active Building Centre’s mission is to deliver transformational change in the construction and energy sectors, revolutionising the way we heat and power our homes, schools and offices.  
Working with their partners, they will reframe the way the UK designs, constructs and operates buildings: through the integration of renewable energy generation and storage technologies for heat, power, transport, coupled with state-of-the-art intelligent energy management systems.  
They are focused on reducing the environmental impact and operational costs of the buildings, adding more capacity and resilience into the energy sector itself, and addressing key societal challenges around fuel poverty and wellbeing. 
The Active Building design principle was developed by the SPECIFIC Innovation and Knowledge Centre at Swansea University. The Active Building Centre is funded as part of the Transforming Construction Challenge (TCC), by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF). Other TCC partners include the Construction Innovation Hub and Transforming Construction Network Plus
They are keen to hear from new prospective partners; whether businesses looking to accelerate the creation, promotion or delivery or Active Building Technologies, universities seeking routes to market for academic outputs around low energy buildings, or public bodies on the journey to achieve Net Zero Carbon goals in a cost-efficient manner.
