Bill Quigley is a Civil Engineering graduate of University College, Dublin. He has practised in many fields of engineering including for the past 30 years in the area of Low Energy Housing.
He was Projects Manager for CRH plc and he studied the effects on energy use in housing of both thermally massive and thermally lightweight construction.
On leaving CRH in 1988 he has studied the benefits of utilising both passive and active solar heating systems in well insulated houses with a balanced thermal capacity.
He is, with Mark Forkin, the co-inventor of the Sunwarm Air Solar Collector and has been involved over the years in building and monitoring a large number of Passive Solar Houses
Specialties: He has acted as Project Director on a number of Energy Demonstration Projects which were carried out for the Energy Directorate of the European Commission. . He has, most recently, carried out studies to compare the NuTech Passive Solar House with the German designed PassivHaus system. This study has shown that the NuTech Passive Solar House can yield the same Energy Use results as a PassivHaus but at a lower build cost.
