Hay Festival 2015 debates energy and climate change

Green energy company Good Energy is hosting a series of talks on climate change and renewable energy at the Hay Festival of Literature & Arts, which opened this week (21 – 31 May).

The first talk is at 10am on Sunday 24th May and panellists, including Good Energy founder Juliet Davenport OBE, will debate the question ‘Does anyone really care where there energy comes from?’

The series continues on Wednesday 27th May at 1pm when actor and writer Robert Llewellyn joins a debate entitled ‘From NIMBY to IMBY’ which asks the question ‘What would it take for communities to say yes rather than no to new energy developments?’.

The Good Energy talks at Hay conclude on Friday 29th May at 2.30pm with a discussion, led by comedian and broadcaster Marcus Brigstocke, about the role the arts play in changing views on climate change.

Kate Turner, Good Energy’s Communications Manager said;

“Our series of talks at this year’s Hay festival are sure to be lively. There will be some great panellists there to discuss all things climate change and renewable energy related.”

Entry to Hay Festival is free. Tickets for each of the Good Energy talks cost £6 and can be purchased at www.hayfestival.com/wales
