The Impact of Listed Building Legislation on Energy Efficiency - Jennifer Gregory, University of Edinburgh (MSc thesis) The Impact of Listed Building Legislation on Energy Efficiency - Jennifer Gregory, University of Edinburgh (MSc thesis) Presentation Transcript

  • The Impact of Listed Building Legislation on Energy Efficiency
    Presentation of Dissertation Findings
    13/10/2011
    Jennifer Gregory
    1
  • Structure of Presentation
    Energy efficiency in existing buildings
    Method
    Results:
    Energy Efficiency of Public Buildings
    Energy Efficiency of Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas
    Case Studies
    University of Edinburgh
    2
  • Energy Efficiency in Existing Buildings
    Buildings account for around 45% of the UK’s carbon emissions.
    80% of the buildings used in 2050 will have already been built today.
    Potential energy savings in commercial buildings are 50-75%, potentially even higher in listed buildings.
    3
  • Method
    Analyse a database of DEC certificate data for the City of London
    2. Time series analysis
    3. Case Studies
    Performance Indicators:
    EPOR/ Asset Ratio
    CO2 emissions/m2
    4
  • Energy Efficiency of Public Buildings in England and Wales
    Average EPOR in 2008/09: 112
    Percentage of buildings in each EPOR band:
    Emission reduction potential of public buildings is over 2.7Mt
    EPOR’s reduced on average by 7.6% over the last 3 years
    5
  • Energy Efficiency Performance in Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas
    Percentage of Buildings in each EPOR band:
    6
  • Time series analysis:
    On average the EPOR’s of the City of London sample increased by 9.8% from 2008/09 to 2010/11.
    EPOR’s of L&C buildings increased by 60%
    EPOR’s of non-L&C buildings increased by 2%
    Energy Efficiency Performance in Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas

  • Case Studies

  • University of Edinburgh Interview
    Renovations Successfully passed Planning:
    Old Royal High School
    (Edinburgh Centre of Climate Change)
    Grade B Listed
    Adam Ferguson Building
    Grade B Listed

  • Discussion
    DEC Database
    Potential for further research
    Non-availability of the informationand use
    EPC’s in Scotland
    Use
    Non-availability of the information
    The way forward:
    More discussion, earlier
    Better guidance
    10
  • Conclusions
    Planning Legislation acts as a barrier to climate change mitigation in buildings by:
    Preventing the installation of energy efficiency measures
    Adding to the resources needed in the planning process
    A balance between the conservation of the building and the conservation of the environment needs to be found
