Driving Smarter Energy Event

The local energy plan for Oban, developed through the COBEN (Community Benefits of Civic Energy) project, identified three main priorities for people living and working in Oban: cheaper energy bills; warmer homes that are better insulated; increased local energy generation. The two events at the Corran Halls, Oban, address these priorities and also the use of electric vehicles and bikes and encouraging active travel. They will provide promotion and awareness raising around activities relating to energy efficiency, tariff switching, renewable generation and active travel opportunities, as well as bringing expert speakers, electric vehicle suppliers and installers to an accessible and central venue in Oban. The events will provide opportunities for people to see and test drive electric vehicles and electric bikes, meet vehicle suppliers and local microgeneration MCS installers and learn more about funding that is available.
