Active Buildings


Globally, buildings are responsible for about 40% of carbon emissions. In the UK they consume about 40% of all energy produced. Any solution to the energy crisis will have to address the issue of energy in buildings.

Active Building Definition

Active Buildings support the wider energy system by intelligently integrating renewable energy technologies for heat, power and transport.

Active Buildings are designed to be energy efficient, with novel ways of creating, controlling and releasing energy.

Active buildings have the potential to be energy self-sufficient. When connected with other Active Buildings in a network, they could have the ability to trade energy.

Work with the Active Building Centre

We are interested in connecting with like-minded partners who want to push the envelope in terms of building performance. To support the wider energy infrastructure and transport in a meaningfully sustainable way. Significantly reducing carbon emissions. Using buildings to support the wider energy infrastructure.

The Active Building Centre is looking to work with property owners, managers, developers, and innovative organisations who share the vision for Active Buildings to support the energy infrastructure, reduce energy costs, and address environmental challenges.

Active Building Projects

We support construction clients, developers and other organisations from early stages of the design process.  We are interested in projects utilising:

  • Modern methods of construction
  • Integrated renewable energy generation and storage technologies
  • Data based approach to building monitoring and control
  • Use of electric vehicles such as cars, bicycles and buses
