AECB standard – what it is, how to undertake it, a case study

The AECB Retrofit Standard is for those wishing to retrofit buildings to a high standard, and particularly for those committed to delivering net zero. A low carbon building is first and foremost an energy efficient building (#TDChallenge23).

The Standard promotes the delivery of Net Zero carbon retrofits, combining a whole house ‘fabric first approach’ with ambitious energy efficiency measures. Individual self-builders and larger-scale developers can positively contribute to a low-carbon future by adopting the AECB Retrofit Standard when improving their buildings.

About the challenge

The 2023 university challenge will see interdisciplinary teams of individual students and 2022 graduates from UK Universities address the urgent need to reuse existing buildings by repurposing and retrofitting.

Individual students and 2022 graduates from Built Environment courses at UK Universities are invited to register their interest to join in this interdisciplinary UK wide team competition which will run for 5 months.
