Cabragh Wetlands Talk Focusing on Energy Demand Reduction Through Efficiency and Conservation

A talk will be given at Cabragh Wetlands on March 3rd at 8.00pm by David Hughes and members of the Upperchurch community group on their experience of retro fitting existing housing stocks as an energy reduction measure in the locality.

David will also discuss the issues and possibilities presented by large, international data centers and their effect on Ireland’s renewable energy targets.
