Sustainability group aim to encourage responsible use of resources
The group wants to establish a Sustainability Centre to demonstrate several ecological, environmental and sustainable themes
Members of Reading Sustainability Group met at Caversham weir on Saturday in an open meeting where members of the public could see the work they did.
The group wants to establish a Sustainability Centre to demonstrate several ecological, environmental and sustainable themes.
The weir is where it plans to harness the power of the Thames to produce hydroelectrity.
Members aim to encourage responsible use of resources such as energy, food and water.
It promotes greater use of renewable energy technologies and wants residents to see how to better protect and improve the environment and reduce their own energy and water use.
It is hoped that the hydro scheme at the weir will not only generate the energy needed to power the centre but also help fund it.

We were awarded a grant to enable us to develop this website by The Earley Charity for which we are most grateful, without it we would would not have been able to progress the project as fare as we have. In these days of information technology, electronic communications and websites it would be foolish to try to develop a Sustainability Centre for Reading without a website.
On 23rd April Reading Climate Change Partnership Board approved funding to pay for us to follow the Environment Agencies pre application process for our proposed hydro scheme. We wish to express our appreciation to them for this and the process has now been completed and the results will be available to members shortly on this website.
