SSCE Training Days
The second of our training sessions will run on Wednesday 24th April and cover Renewable Energy. It will be held at Curborough Community Centre, Lichfield and led by Richard Davies MBE, the director of the local sustainable energy charity Marches Energy Agency. The session will focus on the smaller scale technologies suitable for homes, community buildings and neighbourhoods and will give you the basics of what you need to know to be able to act be a first point of contact within your community and local networks. Looking at heat pumps, solar photovoltaics, solar water heating, wood fuelled heating and small wind turbines the training will equip you with the basics and help you decide which technologies suit which situations. In addition to giving you the technology basics the training will help you navigate the financial support mechanisms that are available including the Feed in Tariff and Renewable Heat Incentive. Contact Kate Sadler via firstname.lastname@example.org or 07565 963282 if you would like to book on. The first training session on the Green Deal and ECO, held on 27th March, was very useful and it is hoped that attendees will be able to pass on their knowledge to others in the community, and encourage uptake of Green Deal to help create more sustainable homes in the locality.
