Oxfordshire County Council have taken up the challenge of climate change and the importance of a low carbon future by setting up The Carbon Hub as a social enterprise.
The Low Carbon Hub is a social enterprise that works to lower carbon emissions across Oxfordshire by developing renewable energy and energy reduction projects for the benefit of local communities. The Hub team is made up of people who have worked (and are still working) with their communities so they understand the challenges….
Tom Flanagan the Service Manager - Planning, Environment & Transport Policy Environment will tell us how they have done this and what success they have had.
Previously engaged in corporate transformational change initiatives and directing excellence in service delivery over the last twenty years. With experience of strategic partnership working and a detailed knowledge in regeneration programmes and customer facing economic development, transport, planning, highways, waste and environmental services.
Their vision is for the River Thames and the roofs of Oxfordshire to be the power stations of the future: communities, businesses and the public sector will “power up” by developing renewable energy schemes and create an investment market for a clean, green energy generation. And, we will implement retrofitting programmes across the city and county to encourage local households to “power down” and reduce their energy use.
