The Active Building Centre’s vision is to transform the UK construction and energy sectors through the deployment of Active Buildings contributing to
more efficient energy use and decarbonisation.

The Active Building Centre’s aim is to revolutionise the way in which building are powered and heated, to accelerate the UK’s drive towards
Net Zero Carbon.

We are a centre of excellence whose mission is to promote improved understanding and increased commercialisation of low carbon construction
and renewable electricity generation, storage and distribution.

We investigate and deploy solutions to efficiently move energy within and between buildings and develop cutting-edge technologies to intelligently integrate
these into networks and the wider grid.

The Active Building Centre (ABC) is a government funded organisation, with bases in Gloucestershire and Wales, aimed at transforming construction in
the UK.

From working with academia, government departments, local authorities and developers, ABC is helping to map the route to making low carbon buildings a reality in the UK.

Based on the Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park, at Berkeley, Active Building Centre has its roots deep in research at Swansea University, in
sustainable construction for the future. Active Building Centre are already working on a carbon neutral homes project with Nationwide in Swindon and the centre’s
vision is to transform the UK construction and energy sectors-contributing to more efficient energy use and decarbonisation.


Thursday 21st October at Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park

Gloucestershire is getting its very own version of the international climate summit COP26. The event titled, Climate Gloucestershire will be held at Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park at Berkeley on Thursday 21st October.

The COP26 climate change summit in Scotland, will be a landmark moment this autumn, but the conversation cannot start and end there. Hosted by the Active Building Centre, this event is an opportunity for businesses keen to develop their net zero journey. Hosted by broadcaster Robert Llewellyn – creator of the clean energy and electric vehicle channel Fully Charged – COP Gloucestershire will consider how to transform construction to create greener buildings and some of the biggest issues facing policymakers grappling with these challenges.

The conference will discuss issues ranging from leadership on the green agenda, the role of the public sector in reaching net zero, to the need for green skills, and how the UK’s construction industry needs to adapt or wither.
