Green Open Day at the Centre for Disability Studies on 24th September

Essex Community Energy Fortnight

Learn how to make your home cosier and save £’s on energy

Visit the Green Open Day at the Centre for Disability Studies, 34 Rocheway, Rochford SS4 1DQ on 24th September from 10am to 2pm for a guided tour of their eco-building and learn how to reduce energy use at home.

Why not pop along and see how green technologies work in real life? And if you needed an extra incentive to participate, there will be tea, cakes and prizes!

The Centre for Disability Studies is an exemplar of green building and accessible design. It has been built using Passivhaus design principles, a rigorous standard for energy efficiency in a building. Electricity is generated by solar panels and design has focused on maximising daylighting and passive solar gain. Overall, the building achieves an exceptionally high standard of thermal performance, meaning low running costs for their charity and excellent internal comfort for building users over many years.

Booking is preferred, but not essential. Please register your interest in this event by emailing luciana.almeida.

If you can’t make the event, you can still learn how to save energy at home by joining a FREE HOME ENERGY SAVING webinar, on the 18th September at 1pm. Register your interest here and you will be sent details on how to login on the day.

The Centre’s website is www.disabilityessex.org. The Community Energy Fortnight (13th to 28th September) is a national campaign to celebrate how communities across the UK are generating, owning and saving energy.
