The Tarbase project, led by the Urban Energy Research Group at Heriot-Watt University's School of Built Environment, investigated the potential for low-carbon refurbishments for the current UK building stock.
The £1.4m research project, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and Carbon Trust, carried out technical, social and economic analyses of a wide range of refurbishments for different building types in the domestic and non-domestic sector, with a broad aim of exceeding 50% carbon savings by the year 2030. The main outputs of the non-domestic sector of this work are now available in a report entitled Reducing CO2 emissions in existing buildings.
