This group was setup to create a forum for both discussing how we are currently dealing with energy, whether that be petrol in a car, or gas and electricity in the home, and how we can move to a sustainable, clean energy based future.
Whilst renewable energy is a frequent discussion topic, using less of what we have, or being energy efficient, is just as important, if not more so, and within everyone’s reach. Of course, it’s easier said than done, but by sharing skills and knowledge, we can help both the environment and our bills!
Thermal Imaging Cameras
We now have two cameras and loan them out to residents in St Albans and Harpenden – to help identify heat loss in the house or building. Please see our new website for details https://sustainablestalbans.org
Energy Saving Homes: We ran Energy Saving Homes for two years. It is based on the Open Houses format, whereby householders open up their homes for the weekend explaining how they’ve made their homes more energy efficient and in some cases are generating their own power. For information on the event in 2013 go to: www.stalbansenergysavinghomes.org
We meet up every month (except over certain holiday periods), and we welcome anyone who has an interest in energy.
