HRH The Prince of Wales has always been consistent in his environmental beliefs, setting up his organic foods company a good decade before the bandwagon really got rolling, and always being outspoken regarding his beliefs.
So it’s no surprise that Prince Charles is to undertake a tour of the UK to promote sustainable living. The tour starts in Glasgow, with Charles making the trip in the bio-fuelled royal train.

One of the best things about the Green Energy topic is that theres always something of interest to read. There is a constant stream of news and opinion out there in the mainstream news and more niche blogs and websites.
For enthusiasts of the subject who may wish to dig a little deeper (we like to count ourselves in here) truly great reading material can be found within the Academic Community: for example this great post by Josh Winn at the University of Lincoln on Oil and the story of energy. There is also a great deal of excellent video content out there, the Open University has a guide to some of the best out there. Of course, we shouldn’t forget about our friends across the pond where a huge academic network exists.
In order to find these sites, simply perform some smart Google searches, ie: “green energy” inurl:.ac.uk” and you should get some interesting results.
Happy learning, and please let us know what your favourite energy learning resource is!
