Organisers: Act on Energy

Contact: Roger Matthews 01789 29850

The Shipston Community Energy Fair, being organised by local energy advice charity Act on Energy & Transition Shipston, will showcase the work of local organisations and energy businesses. There will be the chance to find out more about different types of insulation, heating, lighting and renewable energy technologies - all things that can help improve energy efficiency in the home or at your premises.
The Community Energy Fair will open from 4pm to 9pm on Wed 21st March and entry is free.
Energy costs have doubled in the past five years and are likely to continue to rise significantly in the future, making energy efficiency increasingly important, both environmentally and financially.

TV Architectural Designer to tell Shipston \"How to really go Green\"
\"See through the spin to really go green\" That will be the message that TV architectural designer Charlie Luxton will be giving at the Energy Fair in Shipston on Wednesday 21 March. Charlie Luxton is the presenter and \"architectural expert\" for many TV programmes including 2011 DIY SOS: The Big Build (BBC1) and Britain, Hidden Heritage (BBC1), and he has many years practical experience as an architect in the design of environmental buildings. He is currently working on a programme for BBC2, Rebuilding Britain, which will be aired later this year. At home he has helped start Hook Norton Low Carbon, a community co-operative that has invested over 400,000 into village-wide carbon reduction schemes. This includes green-furbishing thirty houses, creating a car pool, installing a 12kW solar array on the local school and exploring the potential for a community wind turbine.
\"Seeing Through the Spin to Really Go Green\"
Charlie Luxtons talk will take place at

The first of a programme of six Community Energy Fairs in Stratford District took place in Alcester on Saturday 10 March.

Funding for the programme of community energy fairs has come from the Governments Local Energy Assessment Fund (LEAF), which is distributed by the Department for Energy and Climate Change.
In addition to the support for the energy fairs, Act on Energy is also using LEAF money to pay for the setting up of a specialised website which will provide information to owners of older homes, for energy audits of community buildings in the district including the Townsend Hall, for the creation of a series of case studies of energy efficiency improvements by local home owners, and for training. Information about these developments will be available at the community energy fairs.
