‘Green Doors’ open up to offer energy advice

CSE advisors on standby as part of Bristol event

1 September 2010

Energy advisors will be on hand to reveal some energy efficiency secrets this month, as the doors open on a Bristol-wide event aimed at promoting low-carbon living and home energy reduction.

Bristol Green Doors, which takes place over the weekend of Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 September, coincides with English Heritage’s national ‘open doors’ day and is aimed at encouraging householders to throw open their homes and show their neighbours, and the world, what they've done to reduce domestic energy consumption and promote low-carbon living.

As well as showcasing homes, there will be several venues across the city where people can go to find out more, including community centres, cafes, churches and libraries.

CSE’s advisors will be at Knowle West media centre over the weekend, offering a wide variety of energy advice including on issues such as: heating, insulation, renewables, the feed-in tariff and behavioural change. There will also be information about grants and schemes, and home energy checks will be available for people to complete or to take away with them and fill in later.

As part of Green Doors, CSE advisors will also be staffing an advice stand at Bristol Central Library on Tuesday 21 and Thursday 23 September.
