The Fermanagh Trust together with Bryson Energy are hosting an Energy Event, offering up-to date information on ways to address energy outgoings and options available to save on energy costs for community owned buildings.
The event, which is free of charge, will take place on Tuesday 16th September in Fermanagh House at 7:30pm sharp.
Topics covered on the evening will include: energy saving measures and renewable energies; VAT on energy consumption; and opportunities for householders through the Warm Homes Scheme. The event will also explore the concept of oil buying clubs; including a presentation on the experiences of Glenravel Oil Club in Co Antrim.
All church bodies, community halls, organisations owning properties, sports clubs, Orange halls, charities and other types of not-for-profit organisations are encouraged to attend the event.
Graeme Dunwoody, Research and Policy Officer at the Fermanagh Trust said “‘It is necessary for organisations to reflect upon our relationship with energy. This is particularly relevant against the backdrop of the ever rising costs of energy and fuel poverty. This Event will help communities to gain a greater understanding of the ways they can practically address their energy outgoings and opportunities to save energy. It is important that we look at the long term sustainability of our community venues and halls, and this Event will help us explore opportunities of doing so.
There is the opportunity to learn more about energy saving measures and renewable energies, and the support and services which Bryson Energy provides. We will also hear of first hand experiences of oil buying clubs and the savings which they can pass onto their members. Glenravel Oil Club will share its experiences of running a successful oil club and the benefits it has had for a rural community.”
Booking is essential. To book a place for the event, please contact Graeme Dunwoody on 02866 320210 or by email email@example.com
