Centre for Doctoral Training in Decarbonisation of the Built Environment (dCarb)

Organization profile

Organisation profile

The UK has set the target of an 80 per cent cut in carbon emissions by 2050. The built environment is responsible for 50 per cent of relevant emissions, making it the largest single emitter and the need to decarbonise one of the most critical and immediate challenges the construction industry is facing.

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Decarbonisation of the Built Environment (dCarb) has been launched to address this challenge and carry out multidisciplinary research into the design and creation of zero-carbon buildings and technologies that will potentially transform the future of our built environment.
