Please make sure you complete your maps for the first day back and also do some research for your proposal. Have a nice break!
You will be given an OS map to conduct a feasibility study and produce an energy proposal for the map’s area. State what types of renewable energy would be suitable for the region, or what mix of these could be used, and the site where these could be employed.
