    As every home is unique, what low carbon solutions are required to retrofit the 27 million homes?

    Cambridge Cleantech and pjb Associates are once again teaming up to bring you the best of cleantech in order to achieve sustainable homes.

    In this webinar, we will be discussing the importance of retrofitting the millions of UK homes effectively and in an affordable, scalable manner. Our homes and are as unique as their occupant(s). One of the key difficulties of improving the energy efficiency of your home is that, as for many other areas, one size does not fit all.


    Part of our Climate Action Programme, join us to see what the current solutions will reduce carbon emissions in order to meet the Government’s 2050 Carbon Zero targets and the 11th UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

    This event will include...


    Using Smart meters data to gain a better understand heat loss in domestic properties

    - Hermione Crease Co-Founder Purrmetrix


    Smart Ventilation for cosy homes and lower energy bills

    - Agnes Czako, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Airex Technologies


    Making heat pumps smarter using variable electricity tariffs

    Ignas Bolsakovas, formerly Co-founder & CTO of Homely Energy now Principal Engineer of Evergreen Energy

    Webinar overview:
    To achieve the true potential of solar energy as we move towards Net-Zero, researchers working towards the solar-driven conversion of abundant resources into renewable fuels are working ever more closely with those addressing the formulation, characterisation and development of photovoltaic cell materials and architectures.

    This free web symposium seeks to stimulate synergies between Early Career Researchers within the fields of solar energy materials development, solar energy conversion and solar fuels synthesis to build collaborations required to meet existing and future technical challenges.
    Invited Keynote speakers will set the scene through describing their cross-cutting work; however, the focus of this web meeting will be on giving Early Career Researchers the opportunity to share their exciting developments.
