Free (with a small charge for lunch)
This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.
10am - 1pm: an overview on Community Energy in the UK and of the various technologies and possibilities for future projects.
2-5pm: this section of the event is for individuals and groups who want to set up a project. It will take people through the steps involved, so that they will come away with a detailed plan of action.
Participants are welcome to register for one or both events - please specify which part you'd like to join in your email.
The location is a former mill that has been renovated to receive an 'A' energy rating and a co-housing development that uses solar PV from panels owned by More Renewables. There is also a district heating system powered by a biomass boiler, a solar thermal system, houses built to Passivhaus and Code 6 standard and a future community owned hydro scheme. A tour will be available during the lunch break.
