Birdhill Tidy Towns video screenshot from webinar June 2021 community home energy upgrades

In this recording of ECTC’s Home Energy Upgrades Information Webinar, held in June 2021, Aileen Campion from Birdhill and adjudicator with Tidy Towns discusses the benefits of community energy projects. The Tidy Towns movement & retrofitting of homes dovetails nicely together – whether it’s focusing on relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Sustainability – Doing More with less – a community’s involvement in initiatives around energy saving pays dividends.
