Creating a Low Carbon Home
Thurs 15th July 20:00 – 21:00: Free ticketed live virtual dinner discussion
Many of us are interested in reducing the pollution we generate directly , whether that is through transportation (see discussion on Walking and Cycling Infrastructure) or simply via the energy generation needed to run one’s household. 13% of the UK’s carbon emissions comes from mainly heating our homes due to draughts and cold spots. A low carbon home is a more comfortable home with cleaner air and a healthy indoor temperature.
What’s more exciting, is your home can become a virtual power plant providing electricity to heat your home, charge an electric vehicle or to store energy for use later on. As the UK is moving away from coal fired power stations, the grid carbon factor has halved since 2014. So electrification and moving away from gas is a really important part of creating a low carbon home.
The difficult part is knowing where to start, so we are inviting you to a free virtual dinner discussion with our expert, Leah Robson, who will answer questions to help you on the road to a low carbon home. Leah has installed heat pumps and solar panels in over 50 local homes and businesses and is especially keen on a whole house approach to look at how insulation and different technologies can work together to reduce CO2 emissions.
Saving or reducing the energy used also means saving money. That can be as simple as changing a light bulb!
- Quick wins by the Energy Saving Trust
- A range of tools, guides and reports to help your business or organisation
