People in Lichfield have been learning about a range of green energy matters.

A training workshop event was hosted by Lichfield District Council and run by Green Communities – an Energy Saving Trust project that aims to support and promote community-based energy projects.

Twenty-eight people from across the district took part in the training, including members of local climate change action groups. On the day Beverley Davidson, Trainer for Green Communities, guided the group through the opportunities and benefits of sustainable energy. This included learning about energy efficiency, sustainable energy use, renewable energy technologies, and how community energy projects can play an important role in reducing CO2 emissions.

Christine Cole, Lichfield District Council’s Recycling and Street Scene Development Officer, said:

“The training session was fascinating, and we now have lots of practical guidance on how to live a greener life by making informed choices about the type of energy we use and promote. Feedback from everyone who took part on the training has been really positive and we hope to host more of these in the future.”
