    Carbon Coop Retrofit - a Conversation with Marianne, Matt & Johnathan

    In this first episode of season 6 I chat with some of the people in the Carbon CoOp team

    You can hear what they are all about and how they have been helping people navigate through the cacophony of retrofit and renewable heating advice. They are one of my favourites out there and really understand the challenge.

    Matt is very much an enthusiast, like myself, in monitoring  buildings and heating with sensors etc in order to engender better outcomes and encourage learning.

    In keeping with an IoT theme please welcome my new sponsor: Farnell, who have an event happing soon. They also have a Raspberry Pi Solutions Kit and you will hear me discuss Raspberry Pi with the Carbon Coop team on this episode.
