Location: Whittlesford Memorial Hall, Mill Lane, Whittlesford, Cambs, CB22 4NE

Description:

Join us for an exciting event – Reimagining Community Energy Together! This in-person gathering is a fantastic opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for sustainable energy solutions.

  • Expert speakers from Octopus Energy’s community energy project, Younity; Cambridgeshire County Council’s Head of Energy Services, Eithne George; and Grantchester Heat Project organiser and filmmaker Josh Newman;
  • Stalls from Transition Cambridge, Cambridge Carbon Footprint, and local people at various stages of actual community energy projects, including solar, wind and heat networks;
  • Plenty of time for questions and discussion with people from other communities to explore how can work together to develop our own community energy schemes.

Community Energy programmes often start with reducing energy needs in the first place, so we’ll also have local retrofitting experts on hand who can answer your questions about transitioning to comfortable, cost-effective homes that are good for us and the planet.

Expect engaging discussions, inspiring talks, and networking opportunities with experts in the field. Whether you’re an energy enthusiast, a community leader, or simply curious about green initiatives, this event is for you!

This event is a collaboration between the Net Zero Now Programme, Haslingfield and Harlton Eco, 2G3S and Cambridge Carbon Footprint. It is a follow up to our very successful Reimagining Our Future…Together event last January.

If you would like to be involved on the day, perhaps as a general helper or to run a stall/share your own experience of community energy, do get in touch on hnheco@gmail.com.

Venue – Whittlesford Memorial Hall, Whittlesford, CAMBS. Closest station Whittlesford Parkway (20 minute walk). Parking available on site.
