burning answer

The evening will start with a talk from Keith Barnham author of “The Burning Answer”. His talk is entitled “How soon can we achieve an all-renewable electricity supply in Gordano?”

Keith is Emeritus Professor of Physics at Imperial College, London. He started his career as a particle physicist but has spent the last twenty years or so researching into solar photovoltaics. He is convinced that the future lies in solar PV  and he questions the wisdom of current energy policy in the UK which he says is being dictated by the fossil fuel and nuclear lobbies.

Election of Directors

The position of director is an important one in LCG. Under its rules a third of the elected directors must retire each year. This year existing directors Rob Lamoon and Ervin Bossanyi will be standing down and both have indicated that they will be standing for re-election. We have also received a nomination form from Mark Gale. There will therefore be an election for the two vacant positions.

The nomination forms from the three candidates can be seen by selecting them below.
