Event description
Community solar farms may soon feed power for trains through Winchester. What more can be done to inspire community energy in Hampshire?

About this Event

Riding Sunbeams is a visionary project to power global rail networks with solar PV. Hampshire has been chosen for the first pilot, potentially inspiring a revival of local community energy projects. Our speakers will explain how the railway through Winchester may soon draw on local solar energy, and then discuss what actions local and central government could take to stimulate community projects across the County.

Speakers

Ollie Pendered, Chief Executive Officer, Community Energy South

Martin Heath, Basingstoke Energy Services Co-op

Cllr Lynda Murphy, City Council Cabinet member with responsibility for the Environment and Transport
