Implementation of systems

The Solcer team are working with the Low Carbon Built Environment Project, to implement the systems based approach. This will involve installing systems in:

  • 5 existing buildings located in Convergence Areas from with the social housing sector;
  • 1 new demonstration facility designed to demonstrate the potential for the systems based approach to be used in new housing.

Both the retrofits and new build systems will comprise of supply, storage and demand technologies developed, where possible, through the LCRI programme and other Welsh sourced technologies where applicable.

They will be designed with affordability and replicability as a key criteria in order to demonstrate the construction of affordable buildings utilising new low carbon technologies.

Both the existing buildings and new test facility will be located in Convergence areas.
