The Low-impact Living Initiative are offering three residential weekend courses during the second half of March 2007 in Buckinghamshire.

Mixing biodiesel during a course

How to Make Biodiesel

Biodiesel offers reductions in CO2 emissions and can be made from waste vegetable oil (WVO). During this weekend course you will learn all about this carbon neutral fuel and find out how to make your own biodiesel.

Self-Build Solar Hot Water

Solar water heating is probably the cheapest (per Watt of power saved) renewable energy source. On this weekend course you will find out how to make your own solar water heating system. If you choose the builder option you will actually assemble the parts of your heating system during the course and be able to take it home with you.

Builders will receive two pre-fabricated panels, the cylinder, pump, control set, fittings, insulation etc - truly a full solar water heating system. Alternatively you can just attend the course and take away the knowledge - worth considering if you would like to make your own solar heating panel.

Vegetable Oil Engine Conversion

If you have an indirect injection diesel car then you can convert it to run on environmentally friendly Biodiesel. During this weekend course you will learn how to convert your car to run on new or used straight vegetable oil (SVO). The car of one participant will be used as the demonstration vehicle and will be fully converted during the course.

Courses are great value priced from just 120 to 180 depending on your level of earnings and shared accommodation, meals, and bedding are all included.
