Paul Holmes-Ling says…

“As any landowner will know the cost of energy has risen dramatically over recent years and this workshop investigates techniques available to reduce costs and discuss the opportunities to become an energy provider. This session will cover many alternative suggestions on reducing current energy needs and the capture of waste power linked to individual energy audits. It will also discuss various methods of generating power for one’s own use to selling to a third party with cost and payback indicators along with signposting to potential suppliers and sources of information. “

The Future Energy events are sponsored by the Footprint Trust and supported by the Isle of Wight Council.
