Lower Carbon Drive is a campaign to help businesses, professionals and the public reduce their carbon footprint through the way we use energy in buildings and their surroundings.
The initiative was originally set up in 2007 to help businesses, professionals and the public review the way we use energy in UK homes and their surroundings. A full scale model of a Victorian terrace was erected on Trafalgar Square showing how retro fitting measurements can save both energy and money. A smaller scale model has been kept on permanent exhibition at The Building Centre since 2009. The latest addition is the digital model of the house which you can view above.
Lower Carbon Drive is an edited, narrated, technical exhibition based on the themes of Energy, Ventilation, Insulation, Lighting, Waste & Recycling, Water & Drainage, Appliances.
The Building Centre’s Lower Carbon Drive project has received backing from Eco Advantage, a European Social Fund ITM project, to enable the detailed animation showing energy saving technology in-use in the home.
Funding was secured in 2012 to turn this project into a broadcast ready HD animation. Working with BAFTA nominated animators, the project brings the latest energy saving technology to life. Viewers can watch new products in operation, view the measurable benefits of energy-saving measures and products throughout the building and compare the before and after effects of installing solutions into the home.
Two leading manufacturers Mitsubishi Electric and Selectaglaze have backed the scheme by becoming the first to showcase their products in the project.
