ENERGY IN ROUNDHAY

The Energy group is working to raise awareness of what we can all do to cut our fuel and energy bills, the ways in which we can reduce the amount of energy we use and the way in which we can reduce our impact on the planet.

Do you want to know how to save money through changing a few things in your house? What are the best insulation techniques? What can you put in to your house to reduce your energy use? Even small changes can make a big difference!

WHAT THE ENERGY GROUP DOES?

The Energy group is looking to improve the lives of those who live and work to reduce fuel use in Roundhay.
The Energy group to date has worked on:

  • Green Fair
  • Green Day (see photos) held in April 2012. This involved 10 houses opening their doors to those interested in seeing a wide range of energy saving and generation measures in practice in local homes.
  • House case studies
  • Stall at Roundhay Live
  • Energy stand at Oakwood Farmers' Market
  • Promoting the use of 'I Measure' and 'Quicksilver' as easy online ways of monitoring energy use and one's overall carbon footprint.
  • Using Leeds City Council's thermal imaging camera to take pictures of the effects of insulation measures, or lack of them, in members' houses. These images provoke discussion as they are very immediate.
