A hydroelectric scheme is a practical and economic project. Recent technological advances in turbine efficiency allow small flows to generate electricity efficiently. Accordingly, it could provide power for a single residence or community. Since hydroelectricity is a flexible source, the amount can adapt to energy demands. Due to a diminishing availability of fossil fuels, as […]
Clegg Associates were appointed to provide a design, detailing and project management for a waste food plant in Codford, Wiltshire. The Anaerobic Digestion plant will receive 45,000 Tpa of food waste to provide methane gas from two 21.5m Dia digesters.
