Annual Report 2019
"R&D themes often tend to focus on so-called new technologies. But, when thinking about their implementation in the real world, performance comparisons are needed with conventional alternatives and they must be harmonized with other parts of buildings and their systems. Such unproven technologies cannot form the core of EBC’s research. Rather, commitment by the EBC R&D programme to improving conventional practices is the short cut to untap the potential of the buildings sector for substantially improving its energy efficiency to realise the goal of energy use reduction by 2050. In this way, EBC is helping to establish reliable design and installation practices for buildings, ready for deployment by government and industry to reduce energy use at scale."
