Nothing beats leaning on a turbine! TGV hydro on the National Trust stand helping others scope their opportunities for hydro development! One of many many people there to help others understand the process of hydro development

It’s been a few blog free weeks whilst I have been in not so distant lands. I could hear the sigh of relief!  (I will give you a clue where I was . Wine, cheese and heavy into baguettes!). A few weeks ago the National Trust where are the Royal Welsh show helping others understand the how, where, who, which bits and so on of developing their own hydro. We were working with the Energy Now Renewable energy magazine who kindly supported us and ran an article on our renewables work and also hosted a very well attended session on hydro development in their marquee. Then we all piled back to the NT stand to meet developers, Consultants,  Turbine suppliers, the British Hydro Association, District Network Operators and Natural Resources Wales. (one stop shop for hydro development you might say) I got the impression that there are a lot of people who understanding the process  a little better and where to start (not that its ever simple!). All in all I feel there are many more people out there who are scratching their heads now whilst looking at their streams and rivers thinking “I wonder?’ Big thanks also to Emily from our external affairs team who turned the idea into a real and successful ‘thing’. Wonder if we could do the same next year on another technology?

thanks to Energy Now magazine for the support in making the "I have a stream sessions" a success. (ps Plas Newydd PV on the front cover!)
