Sustainable Energy Generation in a Historic Town – talk by OVESCO’s Chris Rowland, Wednesday 29 January 2020, 7:45pm

Chris Rowland: The opportunities and challenges of generating alternative energy in the historic town of Lewes

How do we address the need to take climate change action while preserving Lewes’ historic architecture and streetscapes? What are the town’s options to reduce and/or offset its carbon emissions?

Chris Rowland, Director of OVESCO (Ouse Valley Energy Supply Company), will discuss the challenges involved in making the UK’s older buildings housing stock highly energy efficient in response to climate change. Chris will cover current planning policy, with a focus on solar panel planning and the challenges of an historic town like Lewes.
