About 90 people attended Energy Alton’s first ever hybrid meeting on Monday 13th September – simultaneously on Zoom and in Alton Community Centre.

Decarbonisation of heating and hot water is a top priority if we are to reach net zero emissions. Getting rid of our fossil fuel boilers (gas or oil) and replacing them with heat pumps or another form of electric heating (with electricity from a renewable source such as wind or solar) is vital.

Richard Croucher and Richard Care, both heat pump owners, scientists and engineers, gave a detailed account of how heat pumps work, cost modelling and installation issues.

Here is the link to the Zoom recording of the meeting.
