Juniper Green Energy Fair


By edg - Posted on 23 June 2011

Event details

Fair organised by Juniper Green Community Council and Transition Edinburgh Pentlands, offering guidance and examples of sustainable use of energy. For individual householders there will be people offering advice and services to help reduce energy costs as well as how to lower your carbon footprint.

There will be two talks: 

  • "The Energy Crisis – why we need to do more than cut carbon." 
  • "The Economic Opportunities for Scotland of Marine Energy Initiatives."

All visitors to the Fair will be invited to contribute their own ideas and priorities on energy in a brainstorming session on two topics:

  • What energy projects and infrastructure should be in place locally and nationally by 2020?
  • How can our behaviour and use of energy be modified to be more sustainable?

Tea and coffee will be for sale, in aid of church funds.

Gordon Macdonald MSP will open the Energy Fair.
