About

This is a Coventry and Warwickshire IET Local Network Event.

Everyone is welcome.

Headlines such as "Average cost for net zero retrofit almosy £70k" make the task of CO2 reduction seem daunting or unaffordable. It doesn't have to be that way. Phil will describe affordable and available technologies that allowed him to make his home carbon neutral for around £10k, verified by detailed energy measurements over several years. The solutions also make living through increasingly frequent hear waves bearable and even comfortable.

Phil also runs a charity with his wife called 1 John 3:17-18 Beira, which aims to provide relief to the vicitims of Cyclone Idiai in Mozambique. If you wish to find out more or help this cause, please see the below links:
