ISOTHANE Delighted To Be Involved With The Salford Energy Hub Project

Recently featured on the BBC National News, The University of Salford have launched the Salford Energy House (pictured), which is a Salford Terraced House, built within a laboratory at the University to test various types of Energy Efficient Products. The house has been rebuilt to 1910 designs using the materials that would have been used at that time, and the climate can be laboratory controlled and changed regularly to simulate wind, rain, heat and cold.

Said Dr. Peter Bullivant, MD of Isothane, “We are delighted to be supporting this project as it will provide real-life evidence and data about the performance of our Retrofit Insulation Systems, under a range of climatic conditions. The data will provide evidence to support our considerable practical experience with projects over the last 15 years in order to supply clients with more sophisticated and detailed figures”.

Dr Bullivant was speaking after presenting a paper at the Green-shoot Technology Workshop on Day 2 of the Salford Retrofit 2011 Conference, where the energy efficiency and sustainability of Technitherm® insulation for Hard To Treat Cavities was featured. The emphasis of the workshop was on retrofit projects already successfully completed with Technitherm®. Particular attention was paid to the actual performance of the cavity insulation in terms of energy and carbon savings, draughtproofing, and the improved living conditions of the tenants. Cost reductions achieved by using Technitherm® instead of other forms of insulation for these Hard to Treat Homes were also featured. (A full copy of the 11 MB presentation can be found on the Isothane website.)

Other speakers at the Salford Retrofit Conference included Greg Barker, Head of DECC who spoke of the ambitions of the coalition government to become “the greenest government ever”. Describing The Green Deal as a “National Movement” in tackling the challenge of upgrading the energy efficiency of every home in the UK, Greg Barker was keen to stress that the 25-year timescale of The Green Deal would allow the private sector to get involved as it would help long term planning and investment.
