Young Engineers site tour at Specific: Commercialisation through demonstration


Buildings are responsible for around 40% of the UK’s energy consumption and associated carbon emissions. SPECIFIC is paving the way for decarbonisation of heat and power in buildings, for the benefit of occupants and owners, wider society and the energy infrastructure.

Led by Swansea University, SPECIFIC brings together world class expertise in a range of fields including photovoltaics, solar thermal, functional coatings as well as heat and electrical storage.  Four integrated facilities deliver lab to line capability – including new state-of-the-art laboratory facilities at Swansea University, pilot manufacturing lines delivering building-scale products, and full-scale technology demonstrator buildings.

As well as developing new technologies, Specific help others to develop theirs and create the systems that connect them together in a building.They build first-of-a-kind buildings to test and prove the systems in meaningful situations. For example, the Active Classroom, which is used by students at Swansea University, contains a number of new and experimental technologies; while the Active Office, which is used by the Active Building Centre, uses only commercially available technology.

BSRIA would like to invite Young Engineers to tour the Active building concepts, which develop systems under realistic conditions and in a range of building uses. Proving the concept in real buildings is critical for its adoption by industry, regulators and consumers.
