Forum for the Future
This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.
The direction of travel is set. Our energy system is transforming rapidly, and community energy continues to be part of this transition.
To help celebrate the fifth Community Energy Fortnight, we’ll be highlighting how new work on innovative business models, as well as advances in technologies and tools, promise to power up a movement that has hit a few recent bumps in the road.
We wanted to show you some community energy in action so we're taking you to a Primary School in South East London where we'll see their solar powered roof* and hear from the Headteacher, Sean O' Flynn on the challenges and learnings from the project. And we'll also hear from Dr Giovanna Speciale, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at South East London Community Energy about how the project was set up.
Please note that this event starts at 4.30pm at the School. After the talks from our hosts and a tour of the roof, we'll be adjourning to a nearby pub for further reflections and discussions; The Brookmill Pub and Kitchen.
We hope you can make it.
* Please be aware that the tour of the roof is not suitable for wheelchair users, anyone with vertigo or any kind of medical condition that prevents climbing to a second floor roof up an enclosed ladder.
