Low Carbon Hub in Oxfordshire (UK)
By Ben Brangwyn 13th December 2011
Excellent looking organisation just started up in Oxford (UK)
From their website:
“Our aim is to dramatically cut carbon emissions across Oxfordshire by providing a “hub” where you, communities, can find a route to all you need to take action on climate change.
“We believe that community action on sustainable energy and carbon reduction is essential if the UK is to achieve energy security in the future and reach its legally binding carbon targets. Oxfordshire communities have been leading the way in setting up and running successful low carbon initiatives. The Low Carbon Hub wants to help other communities in Oxfordshire do the same without reinventing the wheel.”
“The Low Carbon Hub is by communities, for communities: through the Hub, you can access resources, training and advice from people who are successfully doing what you’re trying to do. Our experienced team of Hub advisors will give you expert advice in their field of community development via their blogs and point you in the direction of trusted resources to help you cut through the information overload and access the right information. We will also provide services and training to help you build the confidence to take practical action in your community on a small or large scale. And, we can help communities that lack the capacity, expertise, or funds, to set up their own renewable energy projects to harness Government incentives and scale up community action on climate change: see our Community Energy Service.
Not only that, we will keep you updated on news, and provide information on upcoming events, jobs and funding via our calendar and fortnightly newsletter, The Key.”
They have some really excellent people working there, and wouldn’t it be great if we saw them spread to other places beyond Oxfordshire.
