Westmill Sustainable Energy Trust seeks partners in energy trial

Swindon-based sustainable energy charity, Westmill Sustainable Energy Trust is looking to partner with organisations trailing close to market household or community scale energy innovations including technology and/or regulation.

Westmill has a current trial involving 48 households and domestically produced PV, and are exploring a potential site for storage adjacent to a wind farm and a solar park that are both community owned.  The ‘households’ involved in the trial include a pub and the local sports pavilion, and all have smart meters installed.

Westmill is keen to talk with anyone who would have a use for such a group of householders for a future trial, or in the storage site. Interested parties should get in touch with Mike Blanch, a founding board member with Westmill, at michaelblanch@btinternet.com.
