The Republic computer is still out of action, and a borrowed laptop is proving adequate but not without its problems.
So a rapid blog without visuals to draw attention to the conference in Edinburgh, World Heritage Site, at the Hub, May 15th.
Last year's was hugely informative, and all will be welcome, professional or householder, interested in traditional and historic homes, energy conservation and renewable energy.
Renewable Heritage Conference Microgeneration in Traditional and Historic Homes The Hub, Castlehill, Edinburgh Friday 15 May 2009
The cost is minimal!
To reserve a place contact Changeworks on 0131 538 7957 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The day will include presentations covering a range of areas including:• Renewable energy – Microgeneration systems in historic homes • Building conservation – Historic homes in a changing climate • Technical Issues – Old buildings & microgeneration technologies • Planning – Requirements & consents • Environment – Climate change, sustainability and historic buildings • Case studies – microgeneration installations in traditional and historic homes, including Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site
Following on from the success of last year’s Energy Heritage conference, the day will cover the key issues surrounding microgeneration in historic homes, and demonstrate how they can benefit from free, clean, renewable energy while retaining their historic integrity. A series of case studies will be presented, including a detailed presentation of a groundbreaking solar installation in listed tenements in Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site. These case studies will provide practical examples of how to install microgeneration systems in older and historic homes.
Who should attend? This conference is relevant to professionals involved in historic buildings, conservation, planning, architecture, housing, the environment, sustainable development, local or national government, renewable energy, building maintenance and fuel poverty, as well as householders and community groups.
