Energy demand over time
Renewable Energy Potential
How much energy could we generate by renewables like solar panels or wind turbines. This shows the maximum achievable and how much of this has actually been identified in real projects. The pie chart shows the mix in capacity (kW).
Hydroelectric - 900kW
Solar Thermal - 11.33MW
Solar Photovoltaic - 9.06MW
Wind Turbine - 10MW
Biomass - 400kW

PV - 25kW - IdentifiedA notional project at early stage of development. See overall map at http://bit.ly/energyFr
Hydro - 60kW - Operational
PV - 6.48kW - OperationalPV at a school: 50% grant funded 50% by Somerset CC as part of their Carbon Reduction Commitment. No export meter fitted but the school probably uses nearly 100% of electricity generated.
