Wind, Waves and Whisky | Fully Charged

Robert Llewellyn is in Scotland to look at wind, waves and whisky! LIKE Fully Charged on Facebook @ fb.me Fully Charged Podcast on iTunes @ bit.ly Robert Llewellyn visits a wind farm in Scotland to speak to EVA Scotland Chairman Adrien Loening. There are 50 wind turbines here, generating almost 500MW of energy, making it nearly half the size of a nuclear power station. 33% of the energy Scotland uses is renewable, surpassing 2011's target of 30%. He then speaks with Andrew MacDonald from Islay Energy Trust to find out about tidal turbines. It is predicted that just 10 turbines will produce enough energy for the whole island of Islay. Finally Robert Llewellyn meets with the MD of Bruichladdich Distillery Mark Reynier, to discuss organic Whisky which is produced in a self-sustaining matter. Fully Charged is an online show hosted by Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf, Scrapheap Challenge, Carpool), sponsored by British Gas: Looking After Your World. During this series, Robert will discuss why we need to change how we think about energy consumption now. He will be taking a look at the newest electric cars available on the market [Volvo, Ford, Peugeot, Renault & Nissan] and also different forms of renewable energy [Wind and Solar].
