Reading Hydro highlighted at COP27

As part of efforts to raise climate change awareness as the intergovernmental COP27 meeting starts in Egypt this week, a leading environmental charity has recognised Reading Hydro as an ‘outstanding example’ of how community action can help combat the challenges of the climate crisis. Carbon Copy, the organisation behind the Running Out of Time Relay linking COP host cities Glasgow and Sharm El-Sheikh in the world’s longest continuous relay, identified 27 local projects which ‘formed the backbone’ of the relay route to celebrate and highlight how community action can make a real difference to global challenges like carbon emissions, including Reading Hydro via its Turbine House on Caversham Weir, Reading, UK

As an organisation, Reading Hydro is proud to have been part of this historic endeavor linking two crucial global summits on tackling climate change, as well having the collective efforts of our volunteers and investors being recognised in such an incredible way. We hope our local project can be an inspiration to others (and those at COP27) in how to turn good ideas and warm words into a positive and clean energy reality.
