On 23rd May, Tayport Climate Action Group held an online session on the theme of Em-powering Tayport. This was the second of a series of talks on climate-related issues, with a focus this time on community-based solutions to energy needs. Speakers were Crispin Hayes, an Eco-Consultant who has been involved in Fife Community Renewables Initiative and Nicki Myers from Ovesco, who manages the ‘CommuniHeat’ to create a roadmap for low-carbon heating in the village of Barcombe in East Sussex. There were exciting ideas for the future, a lot of new information, including the importance of the Local Electricity Bill currently before the UK Parliament, and plenty of discussion.
On Saturday 27th of August ’22 Tayport Climate Action Group is launching Tayport Climate Cafe to create a safe space to share our concerns about effects of climate and biodiversity crises and take forward local solutions.
