THE culmination of a year-long project by Exeter University students resulted in a top presentation to Sid Valley Energy Action Group (SVEAG) members at a special meeting.
Professor Bob Miles from SVEAG liaised with Dr Abel Nyamapfene of the engineering department at the university to discuss a series of projects identified by members - designed to look at potential renewable energy systems within the Sidmouth area.
Four students volunteered to undertake a diverse range of ideas, ranging from a cost effective environmentally green energy mix for Sidmouth by Toby Walker, to an anaerobic digestion feasibility study using geographic information systems by William Bowerman-Whyatt.
Derek Chant, chairman of SVEAG, praised the students’ professional presentations.
He said: “All those attending were impressed with the quality of work undertaken by the students and there is no doubt that this information will prove invaluable for our local community.”
