The Brahan estate Archimedes Screw hydropower project, an ultra low head scheme operating on only 1.5m head and producing 100kW from twin screws was commissioned near Inverness ahead of schedule and is now delivering power to the local farm with excess being sold back to the National Grid.
The 100kW Brahan Estate hydro turbine will save 258 tonnes of CO2 annually. It will provide power for a farm with excess sold to the National Grid.

China is surging ahead in switching to renewables and away from coal in what its officials say will allow it to surpass its carbon emissions targets. The country’s solar and wind energy capacity soared last year by 74 and 34 per cent respectively compared with 2014, according to figures issued by China’s National Bureau of Statistics yesterday.
Wind and solar energy surged in China in 2015 to record levels, helping the country to pivot away from coal, which still provides two-thirds of its power

Shell is involved in blocking the development of a renewable energy project in a legal battle between a private club owned by the company and a community hydropower scheme on the river Thames.

The scheme at Teddington lock and weirs has won planning permission and defeated a judicial review from the Lensbury club, but the club is now seeking to appeal against the judicial review decision.

Interesting idea! Tiny blades inside the 'leaves' can generate electricity in wind speeds as low as 4.5mph (7km/h), and regardless of the wind's direction. The power output of the tree is 3.1 kilowatts with the potential to generate 3,500 kWh to 13,500 kWh a year depending on the wind speed and the location of the tree. This could provide enough power to supply 15 street lamps, 83 per cent of the electrical consumption of a typical family household or one electrical car for 10,168 miles (1,360km) over the course of a year.
French company 'New Wind' is installing the first at Place de la Concorde in Paris and is hoping to expand throughout the country and abroad. The trees currently retail at £23,500 ($33,670).

In December 2015 communities and leaders from all over the world descended on Paris to make history and commit to a legally binding deal to limit carbon emissions and to attempt to limit global warming to below 2°. In this episode of Eco Eye Duncan Stewart goes on a journey to find out how the global agreement in Paris to fight climate change will affect everything we do in the future and what this really means for us in Ireland.
