At October’s Social we will be launching of a series of video profiles of members, funded by the Green Open Homes network to showcase homes that have been benefitted from energy efficient improvements. Each film is 4-5 minutes long and highlights a different aspect of retrofit such as triple glazed windows or internal wall insulation.
Also, Matt will be introducing the latest collaboration with OpenEnergyMonitor on the a Community Smart Grids project we will be piloting in 2016.
As always there will be complimentary snacks and drinks and lots of opportunities to chat and mingle.
Please RSVP to let us know if you will be attending (the event is open to non-members).
