FREE Public Event: Saturday 26th February: Denny Old Parish Church: 11am-3pm

We have organised a public event, pulling together local and national organisations to offer advice, help and of course, some free gifts to local residents.

The main theme of the event is Food and Fuel Poverty – however, there will opportunity for discussion and information on wider subjects such as carbon reduction and Fire Safety in the home (TBC).

There will also be themed related art works on display – created by school children from Head of Muir Primary, Denny Primary and St Patricks RC Primary schools.

The benefits of LED light bulbs will be demonstrated by school children also.

Meeting the community

On Saturday 23rd February we brought our Smart Denny project to the community with our first public event. The days and hours and weeks of preparation that go into making the day all of a sudden feel very worthwhile.
Denny High School STEM (@dennyhighSTEM) group pupils attended and facilitated the LED bulb table – giving away the FREE LED bulbs that we had purchased for community residents, while also providing visitors with invaluable information about the benefits of LED bulbs and ‘greener energy use’.
We had created an activity for the pupils which involved showing members of the public the savings (energy & cost) they can make from switching to LED light bulbs. Well done to all.. You were shining stars of the day!

Home Energy Scotland Strathclyde & Central also came along to talk about energy saving tips in the home, and their #usingwaterwisely project..

Also present were Forth Valley Communities for Conservation, who talked to visitors about collaborating with  us at Smart Denny on delivering a Good Fuel session in the community.

Kids visiting weren’t left out, and they had lots of fun solving word searches and showing their creative talents with HES colouring books… Cakes and juice on the day also brought smiles to faces.. and thanks have to go to Smart Denny family members for providing the home baking and constant flows of teas and coffees.

We also asked for your views on things like climate change, lowering carbon outputs & community impact, and energy saving.. Thanks to all who engaged.. Your voices are important to us.

Survey: Understanding energy use in the home.


Hi everyone,
We would like you to participate in our survey. It should take no more than 3 minutes of your time. This survey will help us understand how people view their household energy use, bills and carbon footprint. It will also help up to know whether residents would like to participate in the development of a local energy project in the district of Denny and Dunipace.

As we begin this journey together, it is imperative for us that the journey is taken in collaboration with the people in our community. We all live here and we want to make it a better future for us all.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to participate.

Free LED’s for your home

Improving home energy efficiency is just one of the ways that we can help in the fight against climate change.
We have some LED’s to give out to local residents to help reduce household energy costs and reduce your carbon output. We will have these available at our upcoming event.
Date and Place of event TBC… Keep coming back here or pop onto our FB page for regular updates and to find out where to find us.
