The launch of the Green Deal is not very far away and there are still lots of questions about what it is, how the scheme will be implemented, and how it will overcome the challenge of making the costly energy efficiency improvements that many ‘hard to treat’ properties require affordable.
This is a joint Bristol Energy Network and Centre for Sustainable Energy evening meeting that will focus on the opportunities the Green Deal could offer community energy groups and social enterprises.
FREE to attend but booking requested (as there is a buffet included!)
