Not only is carbon invested in historic buildings but also ‘social and cultural energy’, according to the foreword written by HTF's Patron, His Royal Highness Prince Charles.  This practical book deals with every aspect of further enhancing the environmental performance of listed buildings and will be extremely useful to anyone working in the built environment. 

There are six chapters offering detailed information on everything from statutory requirements through windows, chimneys, heating, cooling, lighting, renewable technologies, green roofs, building material and more; with six appendices for additional information sources, links and funding information.  Case studies, diagrams and ‘hints and tips’ boxes, laid out in a very accessible way make it a useful manual for adaptation and mitigation – something we are all going to have to learn to do.
