About the event
In the first of our three sessions on energy-saving and reducing costs, our experts will talk about fuel poverty and energy loss in the home – and give you some easy energy-saving hacks.
All three sessions will be led by Bob Dean and Damon Hart-Davis, members of the Transition Town Kingston Energy Group. You're welcome to attend any one, but you'll get the most by coming to all three. FREE to attend but booking is recommended.
Bob has worked on renewable energy projects for many years. He was a presenter on the Kids Field Project run by the Woodcraft Folk and funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering, which was set up to encourage young people to take up careers in engineering to help fight the climate crisis. Earlier this year he attended energy advice training sessions run by SW London Energy Advice Partnership.
Damon was a director of Kingston Community Energy, a not-for-profit organisation set up to get solar PV panels installed on buildings to benefit the community. He has spent 10 years inventing and getting to market an energy-saving thermostatic radiator valve for homes designed to pay for itself in a couple of years, and has now started further research on how we should best retrofit heat pumps in UK homes.
