Church Energy Efficiency Conference

The Trust For Oxfordshires Environment (TOE2) and the Dicoese of Oxford invite you to a day conference exploring how we can make our churches warmer, more welcoming and cost less to run.

Building on the Church Energy Audits Project with TOE2 and Sustain, the day will look at how churches can do their own energy audits and make their own action plans, as well as expert content on:

  • electricity use – covering billing, procurement, efficient lighting.
  • heating systems – how to make your system more efficient, and how to answer the ‘heating on all the time, or only when occupied’ dilemma?
  • renewable technologies for churches – what renewable technologies are suitable for churches?
  • what will the DAC allow?
  • funding – how can you raise the money for your project?

There will be specific issue clinics over lunch so that you can get answers to your particular questions.

We will be joined by staff from Sustain, the DAC Secretary and other experts.

The venue will be St Thomas of Canterbury Church in Goring, which was lovingly repaired, extended and refurbished in 2009. It is light and airy, with a breathable limestone floor with underfloor central heating – and given the use of sustainable materials, such as, blown recycled glass, sheep’s wool insulation, PEFC sourced European Oak and lime render for the facade, it will make an ideal venue for our gathering.

Date: Saturday 4th October 2014
Time: 10.15am – 4pm
Location: St Thomas of Canterbury Church, Goring
