Oxford green energy pioneers speak tonight, 7pm

It’s a bit last-minute, but here’s a quick note to say that a number of Oxford’s “green energy pioneers” are speaking at a public meeting tonight:

  • Adam Twine, a farmer from Watchfield, home to the highly successful Westmill Wind Farm and Solar Park, a cooperatively-owned venture
  • Barbara Hammond, who led development of the new Osney Lock Hydro-electric scheme and is Director of the Oxford Low Carbon Hub
  • Moira Dorey, a Parent Governor at Cherwell School, host to a new solar power system

The meeting is at the Oxford Baptist Hall, Bonn Square, Oxford at 7pm and is hosted by Oxford Friends of the Earth. They’ll be joined by speakers including

  • Fiona Booth, the new head of Community Energy, at the Dept. of Energy and Climate Change,
  • Friends of the Earth’s national campaign manager, Quentin Given, and
  • Oxford City Council’s Environment Manager, Jo Colwell.

Not strictly Witney-based, but Bonn Square is a hop and a skip from the Gloucester Green bus station!
