Thank you. Happy with EV and WPD and guessed some of the other ones. But always a good thing to define them on first use (for the laypeople here).

What are likely costs for upgrading to 3 phase for a typical house ?
Rob Dale
55:54
Sorting out the electrical system is a huge task - but perhaps the elephant in the room is the need to insulate our old housing stock so we can be cosy with heat pumps? Please discuss, as they say!
Seb Green Register
01:02:03
Hi Rob,You are correct there! part of the issues we see with heat pumps is the other upgrades to housing stock before they can be implemented effectively. However that is a topic in and of itself. we are offering a few courses over the next few weeks/months on this specifically,We have driving retrofit quality with Dr Peter Rickaby, author of the PAS2035 regulations, https://www.greenregister.org.uk/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=715We have
Seb Green Register
01:04:39
we also have an introduction to sustainable building with our very own Lucy Pedler, https://www.greenregister.org.uk/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=722and the third twilight talk we are offering is specifically about this topic, it is Enerphit, the passivehouse standard for retrofit, and how it fits into the zero carbon agenda https://www.greenregister.org.uk/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=758

Ben, totally agree about the emphasis needed on energy consumption (not just on producing “green energy”)
Cath Hassell
01:20:10
brilliant session, thanks everyone. have to leave now though
fiona thwaites
01:22:55
Completely agree on the new build mandates. Thank you. Also a % should go to EV community charging.
fiona thwaites
01:25:08
This has been a wonderful session, thanks so much for all the insights and acronyms ! ;) I have to drop
Alan Chapman
01:25:30
Whilst there is a lot of good work on retrofit of social housing, there are many people in fuel poverty in owner occupied homes that will require to find £40k to raise their EPC to C.
Glyn Whibley
01:26:39
Ben, I would totally agree with you there regarding the inaccessibility of EV's to most of the public. I know very few people that could really afford to buy a new car... let alone an EV. Unless there are significant grants to increase this access for people (potentially based on a household income level), I can't see how 3.1 million EV's are going to be on the road anytime soon.To all speakers... would you agree that an immediate shift in subsidies, grants and carbon taxation is needed to have any chance of success by 2030?
Phil & Jane Manning
01:31:29
To start with Draught proofing and insulating our homes. Can anyone recommend a thermal imaging camera that our climate group can loan to households that can't afford the £200 for a professional survey?
Charlotte Surrey - TGR
01:32:07
It may be worth talking to the CHEESE project in Bristol on thermal imaging
Phil & Jane Manning
01:32:56
Cheese charge professional sized fees - they don't offer a cheap service
Charlotte Surrey - TGR
01:33:48
I understand that UWE have some too - possibly worth enquiring
