NLGN Research Seminar in Liverpool: Tackling Climate Change through Communities

This event, sponsored by British Gas, follows on from our London seminar and provides an opportunity for colleagues in the north of England to attend and contribute to this important discussion. Similar to our London seminar, we will examine the potential of the new ‘Green Deal’ for supporting household energy efficiency measures due to be introduced as part of the ‘Energy Security and Green Economy Bill’. It will focus in particular on how the Bill should encompass the social housing sector, looking at issues including the role of coordinated neighbourhood energy efficiency measures, how local government can work with energy companies to implement the Green Deal and the wider policy framework.

Invited speakers include:
Dr Kate Theobald, Reader – Sustainable Cities Institute, Northumbria University
Elliot Simm, Home Improvement Services Manager, Northward Housing, Manchester
Cliff Duff, Team Leader – Energy Efficiency, Durham Council

This event will consist of one hour of presentations followed by one hour of group discussion. We welcome delegates from all sectors – public, private and the not-for-profit – to come and share their ideas on how the UK can move forward with the carbon reduction agenda.
