The cost of energy to power and heat homes, offices and buildings is becoming increasingly unaffordable for many councils and businesses. 

With councils having huge increases in their own energy costs, this is having an impact on council’s service delivery and ability to respond to residents who are being affected by the same crisis.  

But what if you could make changes to the way you create and consume energy?  

At this session we will hear about Swansea Bay University Health Board’s approach to energy creation and consumption and how they have become low carbon by both retrofitting buildings and utilising unused land to create a solar farm which powers their local hospital. 

The session will explore the nitty-gritty of the project, how it was set up and run. As well as how councils can improve their energy usage, creating benefits for the council and the wider community. 

We will focus entirely on practical delivery and provide you with vital takeaways for your work, including answers to the questions: 

• What is involved in the process of retrofitting existing buildings? 

• How can we create energy locally that will benefit us and the wider community? 

• How quickly would I see the impact of creating and consuming energy differently?
