Think Low Carbon is Barnsley College’s initiative for promoting energy efficient buildings and low carbon solutions. We offer the following;
Green Building in Practice
The £4.2m Think Low Carbon Center* is a working example of sustainable construction and is open for tours.
Through Barnsley College’s construction department we deliver renewable energy training for installers, Green Deal training and environmental courses for your workforce development.
In collaboration with the Building Research Establishment (BRE) we run one day events with a sustainability theme such as Passivhaus and the Green Deal.
The Centre offers a unique venue with a capacity of up to 60 delegates ideal for seminars, networking events, workshops, product launches and small conferences.
* The project attracted a £2.75m investment from the European Regional Development Fund. This was through the Yorkshire and Humber ERDF Programme 2007-2013, with the remainder of the project funded by the College.
