Next Talk: Tues March 10th 7-9pm
Topic: “All things Energy – a non-technical review of solar, wind, gas, batteries,electric vehicles and the grid” Roger Munford started his career as a geophysical engineer looking for oil in the Middle East and North Sea. Seeing the (sun) light, he finished as a solar engineer. He organised Transition’s outing to the National Grid Control Centre two years ago and is a Director of the West Solent Solar Co-operative. He has guided hundreds of visitors around the solar farm in Lymington and this talk is based on many questions from the public.
