WEBINAR - Working Together for a Low Carbon Future

  • February 20, 2014 · 2:30 PM
  • Online Meeting

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.

    Nuclear power stations (having been down one in Spain yrs ago, built by G.E.) are one of the cleanest sources. But human negligence being what it is... look at Fukushima ! Constant radiation leaking into the ocean - reached New Mexico now. - how much marine life has been poisoned - leaks now uncontrolable . So its no longer the solution. Bio-digestors & solar are . My eco project in Guatemala has only Solar panels for hot water & electr. proved vr effective for past 10 yrs.
    For kitchen appliances , ie : Blender, coffee & corn grinders, etc. we have converted bicycles , (invented by a local mayan guy): you cycle fast to get the blender spinning your smoothies - great exercise, healthy, fun, & works ! Likewise: a rotating washing machine on wheels. All you need is creative imagination.

      Andrea, no I'm sobbing.

      On Lydia's assertion that Fukushima radiation "leaks" are uncontrollable, have poisoned marine life and have reached New Mexico, there is no scientific evidence to support this.
      (Apart from alarmist statements that get repeated over and over)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
