The great work @AECBnet has done over decades has been instrumental to establishing sustainable building in the UK

December 2006 saw the Government launch its target of ‘zero carbon homes’ by 2016. Shortly after this, during 2007, the AECB inaugurated its Carbonlite Programme – a crash course in energy efficient, low carbon design and building. The CLP was a key development for the AECB and was built on the expertise of members, and supported members in building truly low energy buildings. Its aim was to reach a wide audience (particularly within the design and construction industries) to offer advice for clients and developers, as well as for occupiers. The Carbon Trust and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation were its main funders. The CLP comprises energy standards, a description of principles and methodologies for calculating heat loss and emissions, a comprehensive training programme, a web-site with a forum and a database of buildings with measured energy results (www.carbonlite.net).
