The National Energy Centre
The National Energy Centre: Phase 1 - June 1990
The National Energy Foundation was origianlly in the Phase 1 building but it now houses , and the . It was designed to be an exemplar showing that high energy efficiency can be designed as an integral part of a building without involving additional costs. This was achieved by a careful combination of orientation, window design, high insulation levels and high thermal mass.
The National Energy Centre: Phase 2 - February 2004
The Phase 2 building is the offices of the National Energy Foundation. It demonstrates energy efficiency in a lower mass, timber-framed building. Its features include: a ground source heat pump feeding underfloor heating, solar water heating, high insulation levels and solar PV panels.
