In the world in which there are increasing risks from global warming, overpopulation and diminishing conventional energy resources, buildings and settlements with net zero carbon dioxide emissions are seen as one of the ways forward in putting the planet back into balance and setting it on a sustainable trajectory.
One of the outcomes of the Paris COP21 conference is that a global agreement on achieving zero emissions needs to happen
as 'soon as possible' and the need to have a 'net zero emissions' during the second half of the century is essential.
However, there is no global plan about how this will actually be done, and national policies, including that of the UK,
are still to be aligned with these challenging objectives.
In the absence of a global plan, this conference series address the 'how'
question and thus it makes a small but important step towards a global change in the right direction.
Recent examples from around the world indicate that zero carbon projects are becoming less of an exception and more of a norm. This international conference and exhibition series provides a forum for exchange of knowledge, and for establishing collaboration networks and partnerships in this rapidly developing field.
All papers submitted for the conference are peer-reviewed and accepted papers are published in the conference proceedings.
A selection of papers is subsequently published in journals and/or edited books.
The exhibition by product and solution providers runs in parallel with the conference and enables a dialogue between industry and academia, thus developing synergies that move the field forward.
This international conference and exhibition series is organised and hosted by the Zero Carbon Lab at Birmingham City University.
The next conference and exhibition will be held on 8th and 9th September 2016. Visit the event pages here for more details.
