Come along to be inspired – over a tipple and pie (optional) – by local organisations’ efforts to lower the city’s carbon footprint by aiming for zero carbon in the energy use of buildings. From around 7:30pm you will get to hear about:

  • Novalux LED who install high quality LED lighting which saves companies up to 70% of energy costs and tonnes of carbon
  • St Nicks and our Open Eco Homes project
  • York Community Energy working towards community-owned solar PV installations in the city
  • Native Architects who design high performance, low energy buildings that have a low impact on the environment and explore new ways to decarbonise the construction industry
  • YorSpace who want to build low cost, cooperatively owned, environmentally sustainable homes that create and sustain a community

After short presentations from each organisation and a chance for you to chip in, we will go back to mingling, networking and discussing how we can all help York do better on saving energy, installing local renewable sources and finding money to pay for it all.

The evening is open to anyone interested in the topic and socialising. Other issues such as transport and food production, which need tackling too in order to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions required by climate change, will be covered by future mingles.
