Eigg – The Renewable Isle

Dougie continues his journey through the Small Isles with a visit to Eigg. The community owned island has a unique renewable energy grid that harnesses the power from wind, light and water. The system also involves a bank of batteries that stores electricity when renewable generation is low and releases it when there is plenty of supply. Dougie meets the architect of the system, John Booth.
