The students visited the Severn Trent Water anaerobic digestion plant Coleshill, Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth,  Rhiedol Hydro and Rheidol Wind Farm. They met entrepreneurs from Surechill (Cooling technology) and Dulas (solar, biomass, wind and hydro technoloiges.) The students will be reporting back on whether the core activities of these organisations can be scaled up or scaled out to achieve wide sustainability benefits to the UK or the developing world, how would such scaling be achieved and what are the barriers preventing this at present and how can they be overcome?
