Ecobuild: What now for the performance gap?

March, 2014

Tuesday 4 March, 10.45 – 12.15, London ExCel

Seminar title: What now for the performance gap?
There is a growing realisation that many new buildings do not perform in accordance with their design intent, in some cases buildings use 300% more energy than predicted.

With an ever growing evidence base of the causes of the performance gap, failures can no longer be ignored.  How can genuinely low-energy low carbon buildings be delivered?

Chair: Bill Bordass, Usable Buildings Trust
