The Converging World exists to address imbalances in the world – one of which is the use of world resources and, associated with this, the emissions of CO2 from burning fossil fuels. While TCW has worked primarily overseas, it now seeks to engage with UK and other developed world communities to reduce carbon at home while simultaneously addressing fuel poverty and building local resilience. The COP15 Bristol workshops confirmed the need to support UK communities in both energy efficiency and implementation of renewable energy projects. Our CEO, Wendy Stephenson has brought a proven initiative to TCW which she previously pioneered in West Somerset. The constituent features are: • Sustainable energy plans – A detailed analysis of the energy usage of a settlement and identification of potential savings from efficiency measures and possible renewable energy projects. • The Community Hub – A web-based tool allowing a community to set energy and carbon targets then calculate and analyse progress over time. This also forms a database of renewable energy projects providing a showcase for local or national funding. • Workshops and seminars – From it’s home on the 3rd Floor, Bush House, Bristol, TCW will deliver a variety of interactive sessions in support of the above features and much more. • Community mentors – To support and work with the community until they feel confident enough to continue without us. TCW’s work in the UK perfectly complements it’s current work in India towards delivering it’s goals of contraction, convergence and global equality.
