The Salford Energy House is Europe’s 1st and only Energy House that has been reconstructed in a fully environmentally controllable chamber, in which climatic conditions can be maintained, varied, repeated and patterns monitored.


The Energy House is a traditional pre 1920’s Victorian terrace house that has been reconstructed using reclaimed materials from local sources to represent 21% of the UK current housing stock and rebuilt using the traditional methods of the time, including lime mortar, lathe and plaster ceilings. The house is classed as a hard to treat property in terms of energy efficiency due to the lack of cavity walls.

Salford Energy House provides a unique testing and development facility in which leading researchers can work collaboratively with industry to develop and test new technology and solutions to improve the energy efficiency of existing projects and processes.
