SummaryThe Zuckerman Institute for Connective Environmental Research (ZICER) building is home to the University of East Anglia's School of Environmental Sciences which runs, among other projects, the 'Community carbon reduction project'. This department was keen to show commitment to reducing CO2 emissions. The building has glass/glass PV fitted to the atrium like arrangement on the top floor. It has been designed to maximise the potential for demonstrating PV - both on the vertical and gentey sloped roof surfaces. Glass/glass laminates were selected to give semi-transparent glazing that also included PV.
