Carbon reduction scenarios in the built historic environment (2020)
Report
Lamond, J., Drewniak, D., Wood, M., & Organ, S. (2020). Carbon reduction scenarios in the built historic environment. Historic England

To limit global warming a reduction in energy consumption and carbon emissions from the built environment is crucial. Despite pre-1919 buildings accounting for a large proportion of the existing building stock, the role of these buildings in contribu...
