Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Chicken Poo lights up Gloucestershire Town



http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/oct/28/chicken-poo-lights-town

A new plant in Cirencester will shortly be using chicken poo to supply energy to homes in the town. The biogas facility, a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant is estimated to be able to power around 350 homes and will begin operations in November. Essentially the plant works by capturing methane from decomposing agricultural waste. This is then burned in a generator to produce renewable electricity and heat. This is not the first such plant to operate in the UK as recently Centrica opened one near Didcot which uses human waste to supply energy.
