About

Workshop content:

This session is to show how the National Trust are developing renewable energy projects within sensitive landscapes as part of its commitment to generate 50%of all its energy requirements from renewables by 2020.

The Trust will talk about the challenges of developing hydropower within such a volatile and sensitive landscape but also how some of these challenges can be overcome and what the opportunities are for further schemes in the lakes.

The visit will take us to the largest National Trust hydropower scheme in the lakes (250 kW) where we will be able to see the turbines in operation and hear about its performance to date.
