Renew

 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, alternating bi-monthly  with ROL,  looking at wider issues: http://renewextra.blogspot.co.uk

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.
