Also follow me on:

Completed a technical apprenticeship in engineering and have worked in various industries. I love to solve problems, not those that have answers, but those that need a solution.

I enjoy the outdoors, nature is fascinating!

My wife and I spent over 8 years trying to be sustainable. Growing our own vegetables, we had hens and ducks and planted over 3,000 willow trees for fuel. We invested in a 4KW solar array and learnt a lot about sustainability.

I am currently working on a renewable energy project that (hopefully) will enable everyone to produce their own electicity without the need for a wide open space for a wind turbine or a large south facing roof area for a solar array.

Sustainable Urban Energy (SUE) is a concept that looks at the way nature works and identifys ways to utilise its energy in an urban environment.

The facebook link is shown below, but be patiant with me, social networking platforms are not my forte.
