Should biomass be part of Bristol’s energy mix?
28 July 6.30-8.30pm Hamilton House
Free event (with pizza to fuel the debate!)
Register your free placeThere’s been lots of debate about biomass and air quality in Bristol – some of it generating more heat than light (no pun intended) and that’s understandable when people feel their health could be affected.
But we’d like to move towards solutions.
Our panel are here to help kick off the debate:
- Paul Barker from Bristol City Council will speak on Bristol energy & waste plans, district heating and land use planning;
- Angela Davies from Biomass Energy Co-op (Manchester) on Biomass sustainability potential and Renewable Heat Incentives;
- Ben Williams on research at UWE Air Quality Management Recourse Centre
- Paul Adams (Supergen Bioenergy Hub, University of Bath) will help us clarify what is Biomass myth and fact.
We’ll follow up with an open floor debate chaired by our very own Raquel and Mark Leach.
This is a free event, for anyone interested in Bristol’s future energy mix.
We welcome open and challenging debate, with respect for every voice in the room.
Pizza served at 8pm.
