The development
of the Trail
Tynedale is emerging as a centre for renewable energy! All the main technologies can be seen in a relatively small area. A team, lead by Tynedale Council and renewable energy consultants, North Energy, was pulled together to draw attention to the systems in the area and explain them. The aim was to inspire others to help to avoid further climate change by saving energy and installing further renewable technology systems.

The team behind the Tynedale Renewable Energy Trail are :
Tynedale Council
North Energy Associates Ltd
Iain Kerr Associates
Forestry Commission
North East Community Forests (NECF)

The team are grateful for the use of photographs from Geowarmth, North Energy, Bridget Gubbins, Adrian Smith, Iain Kerr, Fawside Foundation, AMEC, RWE npower renewables and Christian Aid, and for the help of site owners and renewable energy equipment suppliers.

Without funding provided by Northumberland National Park Sustainable Development Fund, Leader Plus, Tynedale Council, Forestry Commission, Energy North East, Northumberland Strategic Partnership and Northumbrian Water Ltd, the project would not have happened. In-kind support from FC, NECF, North Energy and Iain Kerr Associates was invaluable as were contributions to the exhibition from BSW Sawmills and AMEC Wind.
