Comparison of Technologies

CALEBRE Project

  •  Funded by the EPSRC and E.ON
  • Coordinated by Loughborough
  • Variety of energy saving products to be
    retrofitted to a test house at Nottingham
    University, including:
    Electric heat pump
    Vacuum glazing
    Nano-particle insulation
  • Warwick’s role is to demonstrate a gas heat
    pump
