Connecting low carbon initiatives across Stroud District

Description

What: - get people and influential organisations thinking and talking about how to get to CN2030 - challenging DCLG, AONB Board, National Trust, SDC conservation area and listed building control team, home owners, ...

How: This provocation is intended to get people and organisations thinking about, talking about - how we can achieve CN2030 and - what the impact of doing that on the appearance/aesthetics of our built and natural environment is the project will involve academic level research into how perceptions and expectations of the appearance and aesthetics of the 'built and natural environment, change over time. this might be relevant to #Landwise as changes in landuse will result in changes in appearance of the landscape (e.g. polytunnels) we also need to investiage the effects of wind turbines on birds, bats, bees and other insects, and other fauna.

Carbon Saving not yet quantified

Further Information: a ring of 6 large wind turbines on the knuckles between the valleys around Stroud will only generate around 40% of the electricity we currently consume in the Stroud Valleys. When we use electricity for our public or personal transport and for heating all our buildings, they will provide even less. because of this it will be necessary to consider the potential applications of solar PV, solar hot water, ground and air sourced heat pumps as well as retrofitting homes and other buildings with more effective insulation and sealing.
