National Trust Hydro work receives global recognition… awards to be held in Lima Peru during UN COP20

Dave modeling our latest weir. This small weir will play its part in generating more energy than one of our mansions uses on average in a year.

Out of the blue last week we received an invitation to an award ceremony in Lima, Peru. The city is hosting the UN Climate Change Convention COP20. We were all perplexed as to how we had won an  international award. Kirsty, Chloe and I all denied applying. A few e-mails later with the organisers and we had been put forward by readers of our blogs and various communications for this award. The 10 international judges then deemed that we ‘little old’ National Trust were worthy winners of the water and hydro category. We had shown support, backing and drive in the micro hydro market. As you can see from the list below we are amongst some pretty big hitters. I would have loved to see Peru but traveling half way round the world for a day is a bit…

Thanks to the organisers for this affirmation and backing of the National Trusts renewables work. People do take notice!  http://www.rtcc.org/awards#awards
