The energy challenge The race for energy-efficient solutions has begun The UK has a big challenge The UK has a big challenge. The Climate Change Act of 2008 set the target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% from 1990 levels by 2050. One of the key methods of achieving this goal is to improve the energy efficiency of our buildings. In Europe and the US, our buildings account for up to 40% of our total energy consumption. By improving the efficiency of our buildings through better materials and design, there is huge potential to reduce CO2 output. A poorly insulated house can use up to...

Insulation is a key climate technology Heating and cooling are the main sources of energy consumption in buildings. Together they account for more than two thirds of a building’s energy usage. At present most of this energy is wasted due to inadequate insulation. During its lifetime, a typical Rockwool insulation product will save 100 times the amount of energy and CO2 emissions that it takes to produce, distribute and recycle it. This makes Rockwool insulation one of the most effective solutions that can be utilised to help reduce climate change. Low energy houses do not need to...

The first house built using RockShell was in Flensburg, Germany. It was based on a standard design. This house type was utilised to show how easy it was to integrate the RockShell wall system into an existing design and also to prove that it is possible to build a standard house with excellent energy performance and low installation costs. The low-energy house was a KfW 70 energy-efficient house. Offering a 30% improvement in energy efficiency over traditional methods, in line with market requirements. 5 The exterior face of the wall 6 The interior face of the wall 8 Connecting to roof and...
