Consense Launches County-wide Consultation
Consense has launched an online consultation inviting people who live and work
in Cambridgeshire to comment on the use of renewable energy in the new communities
planned for the area.
73,300 new homes are due to be built in Cambridgeshire between 2001 and 2021,
and renewable energy technologies – small and large scale – are due to play an
important part in making the county more sustainable and low carbon.
The online consultation, run by Renewables East on behalf of Cambridgeshire Horizons,
enables visitors to read about the sustainability targets for the region, learn
about a variety of renewable and low carbon technologies and complete a consultation
questionnaire giving their opinion on the future role of renewables.
It also features an Interactive Energy Plan, demonstrating how various renewable
technologies - including wind power, biomass CCHP and solar PV - could be deployed
in a hypothetical community. An Interactive House shows how various low carbon
design features, such as passive solar and air tightness; plus a range of renewable
technologies can be used for individual households.
