Green Party visit to IESD

The national leader of the Green Party, Natalie Bennett and party election candidates met with IESD students and academics in DMU's Queens Building on Thursday, 20 March. Ms Bennett saw demonstrations of IESD’s research into smart grid technology and advanced glazing, which was followed by a discussion of Green Party policies with MSc students. Ms Bennett revealed how her party would use carbon taxes to insulate every home in the country for free. She also explained why the Green Party was against fracking, and said research into Combined Capture and Storage (CCS) of carbon dioxide should continue although it was not yet proven at scale - it was much better just to use less energy. At the end of the visit, Ms Bennett said: “It has been very inspiring and exciting due to the enthusiasm of the students and the academics and it all took place in a great building.” For the full story and picture, go to
