Improving energy efficiency

Energy House at the University of Salford is the only testing facility of its kind in the world aimed at developing initiatives to save on energy bills.

The facility, a fully-furnished Victorian terraced house inside an environmental chamber, has been designed to allow leading academics and researchers to conduct scientific research to improve energy efficiency.

The environmental chamber in which Energy House is built can replicate almost any weather conditions and both the house and chamber are packed with a vast array of sensors that can monitor a wide range of variables.
