Filming on the sea shore with PML scientists

Fuelling our future

 

As part of an ongoing Energy Bits filmmaking project, a team of students from Bodmin College in Cornwall make biofuel from algae and waste cooking oil – with a little help from PML and a local farm that uses only sustainable and renewable energy sources.

The Energy Bits project involves 13 partners from nine countries in Europe and beyond, and is supported by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme. Its ambition is to bring about changes in behaviour and promote innovative practices on energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the everyday lives of young people.

Energy Bits engages with young people by encouraging them to create their own content to reinforce sustainable energy messages –  this content will be shown across Europe via these national broadcast and web channels.
