Free Linking Service

Many families and organisations in Snowdonia are taking innovative steps to reduce their energy use. With Profiad Ni’s Free Linking Service you can speak directly to householders and organisations about what they have done – this is a unique chance to learn about sustainable technology and practices without people trying to sell you anything.

All you need to do is contact Profiad Ni’s Co-Ordinator, tell us what you are interested in seeing and we will arrange an appointment for you to see working examples in your area.

Profiad Ni can show you examples of:

• Heat pumps and biomass heating systems
• Solar hot water systems
• Renewable electricity technology (including solar, hydro and wind power)
• Productive vegetable gardens
• Local building materials
• Insulation & draughtproofing

Visitors say there is something really special about being able to chat about energy use with other people in their communities rather than with companies or large organisations. It’s a chance to ask questions of people who have actually been there and done it, such as:

• How much did it cost?
• Which suppliers did you use?
• Has it made a difference?

Wood fuel heating system for cafe and visit centre. New energy efficient visitor centre in construction using locally grown timber. The building employs many principles of Passivhaus, a rigorous German energy standard which achieves energy conservation via an “insulated envelope”, high levels of air tightness and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery as opposed to heating an energy inefficient building with large amounts of renewable fuels to achieve the same low carbon emission rating.
