Waves, weirs and waterwheels – unleashing the power of water

How can we use and manage water in a more sustainable way? CAT volunteer and MSc student Ed Macdonald has been exploring the issues and delving into the detail of hydro power. Born in the year of the water dragon, perhaps my interest in watercourses is to be expected. As a kid in a nearby natural sandpit I was enchanted by flow of the stream, able to bypass attempts to dam it with clay. Fast forward 20 years, I... Read More ››

  • Tobias Bignell

    Hi everyone, I hope this is the right place! I wanted to get in contact.
    My name is Toby and have been following the blogs here and was really interested and wanted to get in touch to ask for some advice.

    I’ve just joined a project will have a huge community and blog presence in order to discuss amazing new stories, provide support for up-and-coming green energy projects and to ensure our members are at the heart of what we do. I’d love to involve you somehow as your knowledge and views would be a great asset to what we’re doing. We will be encouraging the sharing of tips, reviews of smart green energy tech, news in the renewable/sustainability sector and much more. As a community manager, I’m really excited about it and have lots of ideas that I can share.

    Its an energy start up that has been created by a group like-minded friends. They have a vision of using a community-led company to champion renewable and sustainable energy sources and to provide affordable energy for the UK (and hopefully beyond!). You can see a little article about us here.

    I’ve been working in communities professionally for 7 years, starting out at giffgaff. This is a brand new adventure for me though as most of my experience is in telecoms but I’m really excited to learn more, which is why I’ve reached out to people like yourself . I want to create an amazing community of like-minded energy lovers where we can discuss and influence real change.

    So, if you’d like to know more, get in touch! I’m eager to chat more about it if you’re interested

    Thanks, Toby
