The buildings and energy group is looking at ways to green property, for example looking at improved insulation, renewable energy sources and more environmentally friendly building materials

I have engaged an architect to enhance the energy efficiency of our Victorian mid-terrace. The biggest limitations on the project are firstly that the house is in the Queen's Park Conservation area,…Continue

We have an air filter as part of our MVHR and it is getting really black very quickly. Does anyone else have an air filter which I could compare ours to? We might be unlucky and have a neighbour with a sooty boiler.
Is there any way I could get involved with Brent Pure Energy? Being unemployed, I'm not able to invest money, but I would love to invest my time and effort.
Is anyone interested in visiting BEDZED the low energy housing development in south London? Weekdays 9-5 only, indivduals free. Group tours can be arranged, but expensive at £25 a head. Alternatively, what about the ZOG house in Hazlemere road? Send me a message if you'd like to do either. Nick Hartley
Elaine - I agree the "energy conversations" event was really good and very inspiring. Well done to George for organising and to the great speakers. Thanks for offering your house for a draught busting workshop. I will contact you directly about dates so we can push that forward. I have the list of all the people who expressed interest in attending. I like the metaphor of the carbon quilt. Perhaps we could wrap some of that around your house? Tom
And I've just been on some transition training where I met Anthony from Transition Teignmouth who has developed two websites to help with visualising and and finding out about carbon emissions. Both are v interesting. For example, the 80m tonnes of carbon dioxide which we put into the atmosphere every day can be represented as the thickness of a sheet of paper wrapping around the whole earth - making an extra layer of "carbon quilt" of 30mm per year. The "quilt" was 1.9m thick before the Industrial Revolution, but is now nearly 3m thick (and getting 30mm thicker per year). Anthony thinks that maybe one of the best ways to get people to think about climate change is by concentrating on the carbon situation. http://carbonquilt.org/visualiser and http://www.carbonvisuals.com/
Hi. The "Energy Conversations" evening was really good - especially the inspiring account from Sarah of Transition Belsize of how their draught busting project went from strength to strength. Do we have a workshop planned in our area? I'd love to offer my house - it's got loads of leaky window frames and could do with a bit of secondary glazing too. A Saturday would be fine and I'd supply snacks
Hi Group. I will be at the Farmers Market on Sun 13th Nov to promote the Buildings and Energy Group meeting the following day. Let me know if you are free to join me to leaflet/raise awareness for an hour or so. Thanks. Tom 07786 578 624
