Festival of Research - Future Buildings

Every few months, there is news of fantastic, ‘space-age’ construction projects somewhere around the world: towers that stretch into the sky, skyscrapers made from glass or hotels built under the sea.

This public lecture, which is free of charge and open to all, is another opportunity to see Professor Dave Worsley give his sell-out Cheltenham Science Festival presentation about what can happen when we transform our buildings into mini power stations that generate, store and release all the energy they need.

Dave WorsleyTitle: Future Buildings: delivering clean renewable energy from the built environment

Speaker: Professor Dave Worsley, Research Director, SPECIFIC (Sustainable Product Engineering Centre for Innovative Functional Industrial Coatings).

Date: Monday 25 February

Time: 6.30pm – 8pm

Venue: Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea University

Admission: Admission is free and all are welcome.

Discover the future of architecture and building construction with Professor Worsley and his team, who are developing game-changing materials that will force us to think very differently about harvesting solar energy to cut carbon emissions, create jobs and, not least, help address global concerns about the future security of our energy supplies.
