Wednesday 23rd February: Energy Group: Whole lifecycle carbon in retrofits

ONLINE 20:00-22:00 add to google calendar
John Preston will lead this one - John is Historic Environment Consultant, and Heritage Chair of the Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance. John asks: Has anyone in the group carried out a whole life cycle assessment of their retrofit project? What is the carbon cost of retrofit measures? How long will they last? Will they need to be replaced before 2050 (or any other Net Zero target)? How can we maximise the lifespan of materials? These are some of the issues we will explore in this session.

We will conduct this meeting online using Zoom. All are welcome. Contact Nicola for the link to join the meeting. More...

Meet the Energy Group

An important part of our response to climate change is to contribute as little as possible to it, and a large part of that is weaning ourselves off fossil fuels. The energy group aims to do whatever we can to save energy and to generate renewable energy to replace fossil fuels .

Over the years we have distilled a lot of online advice about this which you can use and learn from. There tips on things you can do at home, insulation, renewable energy like heat pumps and wood stoves and, since climate change is going to bring us warmer weather, on how to keep cool. Look at our homepage for details of the next meeting or get in touch.

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all. However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations. You can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Thank you!
