EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL GOES GREEN

 

This year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival is going green, by hosting a “Low Carbon Property Festival”. The event, which has been organised by a number of leading trade associations in Scotland, the FMB (Federation of Master Builders), the NSCC (National Specialists Contractors’ Council), SELECT (Scottish Electrical Federation) and SNIPEF (Scottish & Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers’ Federation), is aiming to raise the profile of low carbon building in Scotland.

The festival will feature presentations on future of low carbon building, affects of Planning and Building Regulations on micro-renewable installations,grants available, and much more. Taking place from the 13th-15th of August, this one of a kind addition to the Fringe Festival promises to entertain and inform.

Tickets for the festival are free and can be booked on the official fringe website: https://www.edfringe.com/whats-on/events/low-carbon-festival

The festival has been supported by Fergus Ewing, the Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism, who said:

“Events such as this support our mutual aims, and provide an ideal opportunity to educate, inform and, potentially, increase take-up of low and zero carbon technologies.  Scotland’s households have already installed over 27,000 micro renewable technologies, such as solar PV and heat pumps in their homes, helping to reduce costs, save energy and cut emissions, but we can do so much more and I am grateful to the organisations and presenters for their commitment and support”.
