NLGN Research Seminar: Tackling Climate Change through Communities


The event is part of an ongoing research programme in conjunction with British Gas. It 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:
Jessica Sherlock, Environmental Resource Team, London Borough of Haringey
Mark Brown, Director, Energy Efficiency Partnership for Homes
Stephen Penlington, Existing Buildings and Sustainability, Climate Change and Sustainability Division, CLG

This event will consist of one hour of presentations followed by one hour of group discussion. We aim to bring together a wide range of representatives from local government, the not-for-profit and the private sector to share and discuss the successful methods currently being trialed as the UK moves forward with the carbon reduction agenda. Please join us for what promises to be a stimulating discussion.
