A key UK government target is to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Sounds impressive, but what does this mean to ordinary householders? And just how can it be done?
As a great follow-on from our last virtual lecture, which was about electric vehicles, Chris Lenon, author of “Zero Carbon Our Choice” and the blog with the same name, who manages 16 acres of Wiltshire woodland and is the treasurer of the Chelsea Society, will on Tuesday 27 April talk about how a range of building techniques and products can help the move to net zero carbon.
He will talk about RBKC’s consultation on net zero carbon and planning, renewable energy and non-carbon heating. He will go into more detail on the pros and cons of air source heat pumps, solar tiles versus solar panels, and passive ventilation versus air conditioning. He will dig into the alignment of buildings, the problems of high buildings and light and the lifetime carbon of a building – should buildings be re-used rather than demolished?
Finally, he will look at what RBKC can do to encourage us, and what we can do to help ourselves.
This will be a great follow-on from the last lecture on electric vehicles, so do join us.
Sadly, because of Covid, we cannot hold this meeting in the Town Hall, as we would have done normally. So instead this will be an on-line talk.
