Masters students get up close to renewable technology during field trip to Wales
Masters students on the Environmental Change and Management course at the Environmental Change Institute visited mid-Wales recently for a field trip focused on renewable energy. Staying at the Centre for Alternative Technology, they lived entirely off-grid, relying on micro-hydro, solar, biomass and wind for their electricity and heating.
Trips to a nearby wind farm and hydro power plant gave them experience of renewable generation at a larger scale. You can read one student’s thoughts on the trip, or watch a youtube video about the trip
