DAY 22 Exhibition
Date: 22 June 2012 Time: 12.00-3.00 pm
Venue: LEC Courtyard
Huge amounts of energy are used in reproducing "normal" room temperatures of 22° C. The environmental burden of maintaining these conditions all year round, whatever the weather outside is already massive, and is set to increase.
The exhibition shows how 22° C became normal, explains why room temperature is important for business, policy, and daily life and explores the unintended consequences of 22° C now and in the future. It focuses, especially, on air-conditioning and the energy costs of cooling.
