This conference is about making traditional and historic buildings more energy efficient and sustainable without putting them at risk of unintended consequences. It will highlight what could happen when you don’t get it right and what is best practice in the way we use and treat buildings including energy efficiency retrofit. It will reveal some of the latest research, decision making tools and guidance.
