• Sustainable energy

We are interested in developing sustainable energy, both in housing design and on farm applications. We have geothermal heating in nine of the buildings and are investigating the possibilities of a hydro scheme for the lake which has a head of 30 feet. We are interested in both commercial designs and encouraging some simple home-made constructions to provide or use energy better. One of the key aspects is to develop the mental link between energy provision and energy use. Modern urban societies have lost this link, both with energy and food supplies.
