Biodiversity and Renewables in action
This seminar may not now be taking place at this time. If we are unable to hold it in July, we will reschedule it for later this year or next or when our current social distancing and lockdown is over. We will be organising alternative seminars and will publicise them as and when we know what is happening with our current situation.
For this seminar we are delighted to be invited onto Cranfield University campus for a presentation and guided tour of work that this prestigious organisation has done relating to biodiversity and renewable energy.
The morning will start with presentations by Gareth Ellis, energy and environment manager, and Ginny Ford, environment advisor, of Cranfield University.
The presentations will cover considerations to be taken when looking at renewables, what’s on offer, what you can expect in terms of performance, and what has been successful. The biodiversity presentation will talk about results from a recent test site that Cranfield worked on with a variety of other organisations to establish the best planting for encouraging wildlife, thriving in local soil conditions, and those that people found most attractive.
We will then take a tour around the wood fired district heating system and the solar farm, and finish up with a walk around the biodiversity testing area and the newly created woodland walk on the campus.
The seminar is free to GBN members (excludes breakfast). Non members are welcome to attend at a cost of £30 +VAT per delegate.
