  • It is quite a complex problem. But that means there are also a number of routes to the solutions. These basically fall into two categories; buildings and people. (Note bullet points). These are the sorts of things we will be covering today so you best placed to help people in your area. For some of them, this training will enable you to provide the solution yourself – like where to access help or advising people on ways they can change the way they use energy. For others, we will advise you of where you can send people so they can get more specific advice.
