Organiser of FITS-LCD Stakeholders Workshop
"Fabric Integrated Thermal Storage in Low Carbon Dwellings (FITS-LCD) is a collaborative project, investigating the integration and use of thermal storage in dwellings. The project team includes the Universities of Strathclyde, Bath, Imperial College and Glasgow School of Art. The project will research new concepts for thermal stores, exploring such areas as their ability to integrate different renewable energy streams; their impact on human comfort and their ability to interact with future energy networks."
