Our Boyle Energy Seminar took place Monday 17th June at the Boyle Community College. After conducting energy surveys in April and May for the households of Boyle, we finally presented the results of the amount of energy, money and CO2 emissions that the town accounts for. The numbers were shocking, as it was estimated that Boyle spends € 4.1 million for heating, transport and electricity and emits 11,100 tonnes CO2 per year.
In order to create a more sustainable energy use model for Boyle, a Community Transition Roadmap was composed, simulating action throughout four improvement areas: Knowledge, House, Transport and Community. Different grants and opportunities were presented, related to insulation, electric vehicles, renewable power production, deep retrofitting and much more.
Members of GEAI, IT Sligo and Clár I.C.H. gave interesting presentations and the evening finished with interactive workshops.
