CREWW building

The Centre for Resilience in Environment, Water and Waste (CREWW) has received £942,974 from Research England to decarbonise the facility. The research centre works in partnership with South West Water to conduct world-leading research into the provision of safe and resilient water services in the UK and worldwide.

This funding will mean that CREWW buildings continue to operate at net-zero throughout their lifetime. This project is therefore leading the way, not only through its innovative research into climate-resilient water supplies, but also by demonstrating the possibilities of conducting research in-line with the necessary net-zero targets.

The project will also drive new learning on sustainable research infrastructure, by using the CREWW building as a living laboratory where energy and water efficiency are monitored, analysed and optimised in real time.

How is this helping Devon reach net-zero
