CEPMLP students visit the Whitelee Windfarm Centre

On the morning of Friday 29th November, Dr Thomas Muinzer and his students on CEPMLP’s Law and Policy of Renewable Energy Sources and Technology module headed off in search of adventure to Whitelee Windfarm for a daylong fieldtrip. His class was joined by a range of other CEPMLP students who were keen to come along for the visit as well.  The group had a wonderful day out, enjoying a scenic bus journey to and from the centre, the exhibitions and café at the centre itself, and a bus and walking tour of the extensive windfarm site.

Whiltelee is the largest onshore windfarm in the UK, and Thomas and his students found that its enormous site replete with 215 turbines is a dramatic spectacle that really brings the study of renewables to life.
