Centre for Alternative Technology Review

At an abandoned slate quarry in the hills north of Machynlleth, a railway transports you to a futuristic village equipped with all things green: alternative energy sources like solar panels and wood-chip boilers, organic gardens, and a vegetarian café. Interactive displays present practical ideas about renewable resources.
