CommuniHeat Barcombe Net Zero Event
Friday 25 June 2pm-7pm, Barcombe Village Hall, FREE
Learn about the ground-breaking project that could make Barcombe village near Lewes the first-ever rural community to move from oil heating to low-carbon heating, providing a model for other communities to follow.
In the journey to get the UK to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, villages off the gas grid need to be prepared and supported to come off fossil fuels. CommuniHeat is a ground-breaking project which is exploring the approach needed by these communities to ensure a seamless transition to low-carbon heating – making it achievable and affordable for all.
Excitingly, the first pilot for the project is taking place in Barcombe village near Lewes – this event is an opportunity to find out more about it.
CommuniHeat aims to enable the people of Barcombe to become the first-ever rural community to simulate how to take real ownership of its energy, by switching to low-carbon heating, developing much greater energy resilience and providing the model for other rural communities to follow.
At this event, you can learn about the computer visualisation the pilot is creating to determine the most viable low-carbon heating solution for the 200 homes in Barcombe. Find out more about renewable energy and how to make homes more energy efficient, and meet the local energy champions conducting the surveys in Barcombe and who can answer questions about the project.
Local renewable installers and an energy bill checking service will be also on hand. Cake and refreshments will be served.
