The ParkPower team have just launched an online resource listing worldwide reference sites that provide energy related activities in parks and greenspaces.  A selection of sites, grouped by Scotland, rest of UK and international, are listed on the greenspace scotland ParkPower web pages including a downloadable spreadsheet allowing users to filter sites based on selected technologies. 

John Maslen, ParkPower project manager, comments;

“We were unable to find any online resource that brings together a wide range of energy related activity in public parks.  So we created one ourselves. It demonstrates the breadth of innovation around green energy solutions applied to greenspaces around the world. If anyone knows of other sites and resources please let us know by email [email protected]land.org.uk and we’ll add them to the list.”  

Alongside the reference sites there is also a new Useful Links page to provide information about related initiatives, many of which are in Scotland.
