- Powering up & powering down: A panel of Low Carbon Hub programmes | 6pm, Tuesday 26 January
Join us for a panel event discussing the wide-reaching work of the Low Carbon Hub as we take a look at two of the three strands of our work.
Powering up means shifting to renewable energy generation and away from reliance on fossil fuels. In Oxfordshire, Low Carbon Hub is a central part of that shift, generating clean electricity through solar and hydro projects. Powering down means increasing the energy efficiency of our buildings to reduce energy demand and usage. In the UK our buildings are largely poorly insulated and energy inefficient, and there is little incentive to improve this due to the commercial operators who continue to sell more energy. At the Low Carbon Hub we want to create those incentives, making it easy and cost-effective to improve energy efficiency.
- Innovation at the Low Carbon Hub | 6pm, Tuesday 9 February
In the third webinar of the series, we will be taking a look at the third strand of the Low Carbon Hub’s work: innovation. We have a strong emphasis on innovation at the Low Carbon Hub, working with a variety of project partners to catalyse system change and move community energy forward.
- Ground mount solar in Oxfordshire | 6pm, Tuesday 2 March
