Creating Renewable Energy Farms that Double as Wildlife Reserves

Ecotricity, the world’s first ever green energy company, will form a partnership with the British Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) to develop renewable energy installations in more environmentally friendly sites, and which could even double as wildlife reserve.

Ecotricity was the company contracted to construct the wind turbine at the RSPB headquarters in Sandy, Bedfordshire last year, this plan works to build on that partnership, and strengthen the link between green energy, and the environment and wildlife.

Dale Vince, the founder of Ecotricity, explained that, “protecting wildlife and creating habitats is not just close to our hearts, it is central to what we do. We’re already making green energy to cut the carbon emissions that cause climate change, which in turn impacts habitats and wildlife. This partnership takes that one step further, making closer links between nature and green energy.

This is a long-term strategic partnership that will not only protect wildlife, but develop new habitat creation, and make the RSPB a more integral part of the process of our green energy projects.”

The partnership will focus on two different areas to strengthen the link between energy and nature:

•    The RSPB will use their expertise to help Ecotricity create green energy projects that combine wildlife habitats with wind, wave, and solar generation facilities.
•    Ecotricity will use its expertise to help the RSPB increase their use of renewable energy, and install EV charging points in  wildlife reserve visitor centres.

    I am always delighted to hear partnerships like this developing. There always seem to be to much competition for competition sake and working together like this we can achieve so much more. Save energy save the environment great philosophy.
