Visit & Tour of the RES Group Wednesday 3 JulyPosted: July 4, 2013
The RES Group is situated alongside the M25 and is readily recognised as the Wind Turbine in Abbots Langley, but its not just a turbine. RES stands for Renewable Energy Systems and is one of the worlds leading renewable energy project developers, and it is situated in Three Rivers! RES has played a central role in the development of the renewable energy market, it develops, designs, constructs, and operates renewable energy projects worldwide. The site was a former egg farm producing eggs for the nearby Ovaltine factory. From a derelict complex it has been sympathetically transformed into a low carbon office employing many local residents.
The tour started with an explanation by Sandie Taylor, the Education Officer, of the companies ethos and what it does . I was very impressed. They have an excellent education programme and I would recommend schools and adults take the opportunity to participate. It’s good practice to educate the young in these matters, creating environment savvy adults in later life.
