Renewable energy information service
All you need to get access to up to date news and independent views on renewable energy developments and policies in the UK and globally.
This is the main access site for Renew and NATTA- the Network for Alternative Technology and Technology Assessment. NATTA was set up as an independent information service in 1976, and Renew, its bimonthly newsletter, started up in 1979, with a free electronic version, Renew On Line, starting up after issue 100 . This site replaces the old NATTA web site which gave access to Renew on Line, as a PDF file, and some other info sources.

We also produce a shorter Renew Extra, until recently alternating bi-monthly with ROL, looking at wider issues: http://renewextra.blogspot.co.uk
From Feb 2018 onwards, this posting has been combined with the old Policy Blog (see below) and is now run monthly, still covering wider issues. It’s at: https://newrenewextra.blogspot.co.uk
Back postings (pre Feb 2018) are available from the old site above.
Why not book mark these Blogs on your browser now: they are all posted near the beginning of each respective month.
Renew On Line was posted as a blog bimonthly without pictures/charts at: http://renew-on-line.blogspot.co.uk up to Renew On Line 118, but this service has now been discontinued: not many people seemed to use it, and it was hard format in which to load up text properly . Earlier ones (from ROL 113 on) are still accessible in text only Blog format via a link on the Blogspot site.
Renew On Line archive All the back issues of Renew On Line in PDF format are available from: https://renewonlinearchive.wordpress.com
