Our city’s shared plan to tackle climate change


EcoHome Lab: Monthly meetup and skill share

Thursday, July 12, 2018 - 17:30 to 20:30
Plant NOMA, Dantzig Street, Manchester, M60 0AE

Now in our regular monthly slot – every second Thursday of the month. A hangout for people taking control of their home energy usage and generation. We use open-source hardware and software to gain a better understanding of energy in our homes, how to make the best use of the energy we generate and reduce energy wasted.


This is a CarbonCo-op (http://carbon.coop/) initiative working close together with OpenEnergyMonitor (https://openenergymonitor.org).


Topics will include:

• Home energy monitoring.

• House energy performance assessment

• Sensors – electricity, gas, temperature, humidity, air quality…

• User interfaces, dashboards

• Smart houses and automation

• Aggregation of data sources

• Taking the power back! – Making better use of the surplus power we generate

Who is it for?


• Anyone with skills in physical electronics, web development or programming who wants to use that knowledge to reduce energy and carbon!


• There will be open space for small groups to focus on adding new sensors or hacking the user interface, there will always be a ‘newbies’ group for people interested in finding out more.
