Hydropower on the Upper Thames

Upper Thames Hydro
Charlie and David Jeffcoat near Shifford weir

We need much more renewable energy. Community hydropower has been successfully installed at weirs on the Thames including at Sandford, Osney and Reading. In 2022, I commissioned a feasibility study from Renewables First to explore which weirs on the Upper Thames have substantial hydropower potential. David Jeffcoat is now the leader of the project and we are working together to take this community project forward. Find out more at www.upperthameshydro.com. Please let us know if you want to get involved, there's lots to do.
