Met a Co-op member on the bus back from a women’s refuge AGM. Was I going to the Alan Simpson presentation on energy to the Nottingham Central Co-Op branch? Now, I was.
On the day when Theresa May approved Hinkley Point C.
Contrast with Alan Simpson’s examples from Germany (and The Meadows) of hope.
Insulation. Local generation. Energy storage. Control of local networks.
Germany’s national embrace of tackling climate change and stopping nuclear, combined with devolution of power.
Poignant that Alan’s presentation was in the Nottingham Mechanics. Founded in an era when more was done locally and a bigger belief in engineering.
(I hope to be able to add / link to Alan’s slides.)
