Building Resilient Communities event

If you didn’t manage to get to Colchester Borough Council’s (CBC) Building Resilient Communities event last month, you might be interested in some of the presentations, which are now all available on the CBC website.

Of particular interest to CTPC members – was a very illuminating presentation on dispelling the myths about electric vehicles. Amongst the wealth of useful information included was the large number of electric charge points across the country, the range of electric vehicles versus the daily distance the average person in the UK travels, the savings and business benefits.

The presentation did particularly focus on the Nissan Leaf – however this does appear to be the market leader in electric cars and we were impressed with it’s other green credentials including how much of the car is made from recycled materials and that 99% of the car can actually be recycling.

So if you want to know more about electric cars  and see the other presentations visit the Building Resilient Communities webpage

Other presentations that could be useful to CTPC SME’s were a couple of funding opportunities for sustainable projects (though not travel related) offered through LoCASE and The Carbon Trust Green Business fund.
