Event description

Description

The Berwick Energy Conference is a study day on the past, present and future of energy, including a case study of energy in Berwick. It will be led by experts from Durham Energy Institute, with participation from Community Action Northumberland and Berwick-upon-Tweed Community Development Trust.

The day comprises a series of lectures: we start with an overview of energy – what it is and how it is used. This will be followed by a session on the past, present and future of energy. After a break for lunch, the afternoon will start with a lecture on the consequences of energy, in terms of rural development and environmental impacts, while the final session of the day will bring the focus down to the local level, with a Berwick Case Study.This will consider heat, transport and power use in the context of the town and adjoining rural area. Initially the current position in Berwick will be considered, before a look at how individually and collectively we might re-engineer for a more sustainable energy future.

The study day is intended to appeal to anyone with an interest in energy, and no prior technical knowledge will be required.

A buffet lunch and refreshments are included in the price. Please arrive in good time after 10.10am to allow for larger than usual numbers to register and have coffee, as we hope to make a prompt start to this busy day.

Space is limited, so early booking is advised.
