Green Open Doors is an opportunity for anybody interested in saving energy to see sustainable technologies (insulation, solar, heat pumps, wood fuel etc) in action and speak to the homeowners who enjoy their benefits.

You are invited to celebrate with WinACC! We've had an exciting year with  Green Deal Winchester and Cool Communities, and loads of people involved in action groups - including two new ones, on food and on waste.

Regular meeting of the WinACC Transport Action Group.

The Better Buildings Action Group's mission is to reduce the carbon footprint of existing homes and community buildings in Winchester District, including both retrofit and renewable generation. The group focusses on retrofitting existing buildings, and supports WinACC's home energy-saving activities. Chaired by Kate Macintosh. For more information please contact BetterBuildings@winacc.org.uk.

Regular meeting of the WinACC Built Environment Action Group.

What we eat, how it is produced and where it comes from, can have a huge impact on the environment. Indeed, about one-sixth of the UK’s carbon footprint is food-related.  Everybody is welcome who has an interest in this topic and a desire to get involved in campaigning and action. 

The primary objective of the European Conference on Banking and the Economy (ECOBATE) is to bring together eminent researchers, policy-makers and industry leaders from all over the world, including from regulators, national and local authorities and think tanks, to discuss and exchange ideas on current issues in banking, finance, financial markets, central banking, economics, financial regulation, asset management, risk management, new financial services and policy.

Regular meeting of the WinACC Renewable Energy Action Group.

The Waste Action Group aims to promote the ethos of  'Prevent, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover and Dispose' in terms of waste. 

 The objectives for 2014/15 are:

Friday 17th October 2014. The conference looks set to be the best yet! 
Launching new CIBSE Guidance on Biomass Systems, busting myths around The Sustainability Criteria and addressing such questions as ‘How Much Wood?’ the event, organised by Surrey Hills Enterprise at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, Surrey will be lively, provocative and educational for anybody in the woodland management or wood fuel sector.
