And Home Energy Scotland, Zero Waste Scotland and Local Energy Scotland will discuss the advice and financial support they can provide to support households, businesses and community organisations to save energy and make energy efficiency improvements to their buildings.

Kitty O’Connor, senior energy advisor at Greener Kirkcaldy, said: “With rising energy prices and the need to reduce our carbon emissions to tackle the climate emergency, it’s important that we find better and smarter ways to reduce the energy requirements of our buildings. The event is for any household, businesses and community organisation in Fife looking for information and support to adding solar PV, battery storage or electric vehicle charging to their premises.”
