This week

Germany is still very much at the forefront of developing renewable energy and this website (in both German and English) keeps track of the most interesting heating, solar and wind renewable energy developments.

I have recently become a shareholder in a new wind farm to the west of Oxford. This website tracks the Co-op’s progress in constructing five 1.3MW wind turbines.

The weather has always interested me.

It affects how buildings perform, how comfortable they are, how much energy they consume … and it’s so unpredictable.

This website lists the places where you can swim at ease outdoors and is full of information about the risks (and rewards) of outdoor swimming.
