The Queen's Hydro Scheme Moves Ahead

We've been closely following a few schemes and the Archimedes turbines at Windsor is one of those.

The Daily Mail has an article you might find of interest (Poor pun warning)

We've covered this topic a bit over on the main North Mill website and on the blog here- there are facets to the Queen's project which the Daily Mail doesn't cover - like the fact that British banks (including state owned ones!) wouldn't provide finance for a British company to actually build the turbines.

Well, we have had a good experience with the EA for a change. Their last review of Freedom of Information has been very competently handled and has finally ... about 18 months late, delivered a lot of what we asked about at the end of last week - quite a wait.

The EA's prior obstructive handling of our FoI requests is the subject of a complaint and an investigation by the Information Commissioner's Office - we mustn't pre-judge the ICO's findings :-)

It's all extremely interesting -  and there are some real revelations. We will be contacting the EA next week to discuss the way forward.
