Renewable energy – new technologies and new applications!

As most of you will know, Bridgend Green Party has been playing a prominent role in the burgeoning anti-fracking movement, in part because the methane produced is far from the ‘green’ (or even ‘transitional’) fuel it is purported to be.

The ‘No Fracking UK’ group, which has evolved from ‘The Vales Says No’ group, are looking into putting together a ‘pro-renewable’ strand to their campaigning to sit alongside the ‘anti-fracking’ campaign – so that we can be seen to be offering positive alternatives and not just be ‘against’ shale gas and coal bed methane.

Any good links to local organisations or companies in the renewable energy sector would be appreciated – especially those in the local area.

The new school being built in Brackla, while preaching Dark Ages dogma, is at least demonstrating some enlightened thinking in terms of energy and water consumption. One of the contractors is Cardiff based Natural Power (Wales) Ltd, who specialise in solar technologies, ground source heat pumps, air source heat pumps and rainwater harvesting.

Personally, I want to explore the vast potential of tidal energy along the Severn Estuary. Any leads on this topic would be especially welcome.

On a much smaller, and more intimate level, it amazing where the technologies are being used these days:
