Active Energy has received the Best Arts and Green Energy award from Regen SW. The awards were announced at an event at the Bath Assembly Rooms on 29th November 2016.

11am-4pm Saturday 14th May 2016
To celebrate National Mills Weekend
The Geezers will be working with artist Loraine Leeson and engineer Toby Borland in front of House Mill
at the Three Mills
heritage site to construct a stream wheel for later installation in the Lower Lea. The wheel will be activated by the outflow of water from the mill and will power an aerator to help oxygenate the water and counteract the effects of pollution on the river’s fish and wildlife.
This current phase of the project is taking place as part of the Hydrocitizenship initiative.
On the evening of 15th September 2015 projections of river organisms were projected along the Thames embankment in Lambeth to draw attention to the importance of supporting biodiversity along urban rivers.
This arts/science collaboration between artist Loraine Leeson and scientist Nithin Rai includes new reed bed habitat for micro organisms and invertebrates in long basket structures attached to the hull of the Dutch barge Tamesis Dock. Find out more at www.lambethfloatingmarsh.org.uk.
Join us, London Assembly Member for City & East John Biggs and Shadow International Development Minister Rushanara Ali MP at 6.30pm on Tuesday 8th October for drinks and to witness the launch of the Active Energy underwater turbine on a Thames barge close to the Houses of Parliament.
