This is currently concentraing on these wards. However, the vision is for every neighbourhood in Bristol to have a local person to turn to for energy advice, a person who would champion energy saving in their community.
Training is provided to Energy Champions to help enable them to support energy groups in the city, work with community groups wanting to run energy programmes or to start their own projects. We also have get-togethers so Energy Champions could meet each other and come up with ideas together.
In the past, Energy Champions have got involved in:
● Helping conduct energy efficiency surveys
● Learning how to construct solar panels and teaching others
● Conducting small bits of research
● Demonstrating new technologies
● Providing advice and support

Overcoming the barriers to tackling the climate crisis
Wednesday 17th July 6-7.30pm, St Pauls Learning Center, Grosvenor Road, BS2 8XJ
Struggling to get to grips with what you can do about the climate crisis or want to do more? Then come along to this interactive workshop with researcher Nikki Jones to look at the barriers to tackling climate change that we share in our community, and how we overcome them.
You will leave with some ideas and new enthusiasm for making some changes yourself and some knowledge to help persuade that reluctant aunt or work colleague to take action! All with the knowledge that others around you are doing the same
Book your tickets here.
There are a few more events and activities to get involved in before the end of July, check out the Energy Champions REPLICATE Calendar!
The funding from the REPLICATE project means that BEN can offer you:
- £15 for you for every house that you sign up that goes through with a REPLICATE retrofit measure
- Living wage for each event you plan and help out at
