Still in Birmingham after @NetZeroUK #ClimateAssemblyUK thanks to #StormCiara but I'm relaxed!

Again, *such* an experience.

All talks here…

And some reflections from me - thread...

@ChiefExecCCC @watsonjim2 @lwhitmarsh @involveUK
First: AMAZING job by @involveUK and team, both logistics and facilitation.

This weekend I worked on the 'In The Home' strand, with the brilliant @kaela leading relaxed and inclusive debate.

Even when the storm wreaked travel havoc, the team sorted it, & were still smiling.
This weekend we were mainly working in smaller groups. My group looked at how to get to zero carbon in the home - helped by a brilliant speaker line-up (more on that below).

I liked the groups - less formal, and chance for detailed discussion between participants & speakers.
On Saturday, we talked about *what* changes are needed - efficiency, demand reduction, electric heating, hydrogen - w @Jenny_C_Hill, Nick Eyre @CREDS_UK, @heatpolicyrich & Chris Clarke @WWUtilities.

Gold star to Richard for explaining how heat pumps work when it's cold outside.
On Sunday, we turned to *how* this could happen - who does what? We recapped input from weekend one, about the need for interconnected efforts from government, business and individuals...
... then @PollyBillington @UK100_ made a case for local area plans; @lowwintersun explained community-led approaches; @EnergyUKcomms Dan Alchin talked about businesses; @MatthewLipson pitched heat as a service.

Last, @CA_Dhara reminded us that it all needs to be fair & safe.
We had thought long & hard about how to structure the two days, and I was really happy with how it worked.

We did the techy discussions first, then on the Sunday got into some fascinating qs on trust, institutions, fairness, responsibility and social change. It came alive.
I feel like we're ready to dive into the deliberation & recommendation phase now. That's Weekend Three. No speakers: a very different feel. I can't wait.

Huge thanks to all - participants, speakers, facilitators & planners.

Time to see if I can find a train heading North!
