Coming up this week
Thursday 27th June 10.30-5pm, Seminar 2 – Community Building Retrofit – investing in large scale energy efficiency
Bridge 5 Mill, 22a Beswick Street, Ancoats, Manchester
- Do you run or own a community building such as a Community Hub or Church Hall?
- Is the building cold and under-heated yet utility bills skyrocketing?
- Would you like to invest in energy efficiency but don’t know where to start
Carbon Co-op is delivering a free seminar on community building retrofit. This seminar is for organisations that wish to make investments in their building to achieve large savings in energy bills and carbon emissions. We will go way beyond measures such as changing light bulbs or turning computer monitors to standby.
- Assessments: understanding energy usage and creating an action plan
- Heating systems eg biomass boilers, solar hot water
- Installing energy generation eg solar panels
- Case studies from organisations who have delivered successful community building retrofit projects
- Finance options
- Featuring advice on retrofit from award winning consultants URBED
- Marianne Heaslip, URBED
- Frank McGrath, Riversmeet, Cockermouth
- TBC: Cumbria Action for Sustainability
To book: the seminar is open to any community organisation but those who own or run community buildings in Greater Manchester will be prioritised. Complete and return this application form to firstname.lastname@example.org to attend.
Thurs 27th June, 6pm “Fuelling Manchester,” Manchester City Centre.
