AbstractThis paper reports the integrated appraisal method used in the design and deployment of passive solar, wind power and photovoltaic technologies within the Lighthouse building in Glasgow. This Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed building was refurbished to celebrate Glasgow's selection as UK City of Architecture and Design 1999. The incorporation of renewables was undertaken, as part of EC DGXII's RE-Sart project, to demonstrate that renewable technologies can be effectively deployed in an urban context. The key to successful deployment of active renewables proved to be the concurrent deployment of demand reduction measures thus ensuring a better supply-to-demand match.
