with Ian Westmoreland
“Ever wondered just what goes on in inside a solar panel? Ready to take clean power into your own hands? Stumped by watts, amps and volts? Fascinated by the future of energy?
Spend a couple of hours with our us and you’ll walk away with hands-on experience of making a solar panel or bike generator, plus a deeper understanding of what renewable energy is – where it comes from, and how to make better use of it.”
Participants will learn:
The basics of electricity: voltage, current, power
How solar panels work
How to build your own solar PV systems
Understanding the future of energy: where it will come from, and how it will be used”
I’ve been teaching people about practical renewable energy for several years now. Giving people hands-on access to renewable energy technologies is a great way to improve understanding of energy consumption and generation, as a way to encourage better use of natural energy sources. I’ve found that festivals are a fantastic environment for people to let their curiosity lead them into new learning experiences. I’ve delivered these workshops at Off Grid festival for the last 2 years, and I’ve been running solar energy workshops for the past 4 years.
