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.
