We have compiled a list of Exemplar sites in the UK and internationally that either (1) demonstrate the use of green energy technologies in public parks and greenspaces or (2) highlight innovative organisational models for the management of greenspaces. 

If you are interested in more detailed information, view the list below or search our more comprehensive spreadsheet (Ver 1. approx. 200 Kb).

As we discover more sites we will update this resource. If you know of any interesting examples in the UK or worldwide please let us know via   email
