Why not pop along and see how green technologies work in real life?
More importantly, you will have the opportunity to talk to the people who have benefited from these improvements to learn from their experience.
Highwood Village Hall is one of the first village halls in the UK to be built using Passivhaus design principles, a rigorous standard for energy efficiency in a building.
Electricity is generated by an array of photovoltaic panels on the south-west facing sloping roof, with solar panels and air source heat pump providing supplementary heating and hot water. There is a real-time public display showing energy generated and carbon dioxide saved from the renewable energy technologies. A variety of measures has also been implemented to reduce water use as well as usage of recycled components within the construction material used.
Booking is preferred, but not essential.
