The three-day “resource05 – the low carbon technology showcase”, to be held at BRE Watford in September, will feature debate on new initiatives to reduce carbon emissions from buildings.

Views gathered will be fed into the DTI Microgeneration Strategy and Low Carbon Buildings Consultation Paper and the European Commission’s Green Paper on Energy Efficiency.

English Partnership’s Summit Townhouse, designed to demonstrate how modern methods of construction can reduce construction costs and raise quality and environmental performance, will be on show at the September 13-15 event.

Allan Jones MBE, chief development officer of the London Climate Change Agency, will lead a debate on microgeneration and low carbon buildings and a new software tool, commissioned by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and developed by BRE, will be demonstrated.
