An eco-home + The aims of Cambridge Carbon Footprint – 105science

Eco-homes feature: Roger Frost visits a stunning, super-insulated city home that minimises its use of energy; has a garden for insulation on the roof but without a heat pump in sight. He talks to architect Jeremy Ashworth about the ways that his building saves energy. We go behind the scenes of Cambridge’s OPEN ECO HOMES event. Over two weekends in May the public are invited on tours of local properties to hear about measures taken to reduce their energy use. Roger speaks to Helen Karapandzic from the organisers, Cambridge Carbon Footprint. He hears how we can get involved and see the energy-saving options in action.
