Renewable Energy in Winchester District
Winchester aims to cut the Districtís emissions of greenhouse gas by 30% by the end of 2015. Since the 2004 starting point we have saved about 10%; we need to cut our emissions by another 200,000 tonnes. A new Government-funded report on renewable energy in Winchester District has found that a comparatively small number of large renewable-energy projects would achieve this. The alternative is every single household in the District cutting its energy use by a third, or taking a quarter of our vehicles off the roads. The conference will present:
*Realistic ways forward, based on the report
*How developers set up commercial renewable energy schemes, by Darren Cummins, Development Manager, EDF Energy Renewables Ltd;
*How communities can benefit from developersí schemes or their own schemes (with a short film).
The conference is Free and open to all but booking is essential; email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01962 827083
Time 18:30 – 21:30
Refreshments from 18:00 and halfway through the event.
