Energy & Technology Workshop

This Saturday - April 16th. 

Do you ever dream of living off-grid or using energy more efficiently in you home, office or community?

If so,  this Energy and Technology permaculture design workshop is just for YOU as you'll need to know about energy - energy efficiency, appropriate technology, energy storage, transport, as well the 4 Rs - reduce, re-use, recycle and repair.

In this workshop, you will explore the types of energy found in nature, and delve into energy analysis and the life-cycle of energy. You will also be given examples of appropriate technologies (high and low tech solutions), transport and energy alternatives as well as energy storage (both site specific and community based systems) and be able to identify the next improvement you can make in your home, workplace or community.

The workshop (Saturday April 16th) will be held on an off-grid permaculture property so there will be an opportunity to see lots of alternative energy technology being used in a homestead setting. Get in touch if you would like to join in the fun. This can be attended as a stand-alone workshop or as part of the modular PDC.
