Lat week we had the pleasure of attending the BBC Energy Day in the heart of Salford's Media City. The BBC had arranged a day of exhibits, discussions and demonstrations to talk about the UK's energy situation and how we can keep fuel bills down and secure our energy for the future.
On display was a wide array of contraptions from solar panels and electric cars to inflatable underwater bags and hydrogen powered guitars! We were invited along to show how energy isn't just about where it is generated, but also about where it is used and how small domestic products, like the Radfan, can make a big impact when used en masse.
The stars of the exhibition were the cows showing where biomass methane comes from. I won't go into too much detail on how this works but you might be surprised to know that most of the methane comes out of the front end, not the rear!
For us though the highlight was showing off the Radfan to the MP Ed Davey, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. He was there to take questions on the Nicky Campbell show about the government's energy strategy but he took the time, before the show, to visit the exhibitors and learn about everyones product.
