The Active Buildings Centre (ABC) project

ABC Project Logo

 The ABC project  –, a £35 million project led by Swansea University, is focused on integrating renewable energy technologies for heat, power and transport. Active Buildings are designed to be energy efficient, with novel ways of controlling and releasing energy. These buildings have the potential to be energy self-sufficient and, when connected with other Active Buildings in a network, could have the ability to trade energy.
