Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is best known for cooking all sorts of weird and wonderful food from sustainable and seasonal ingredients and generally being passionate about food. But his team from River Cottage, on the back of several very successful media campaigns such as the Big Fish Fight, have got involved in renewable quite a big way.

Essentially, Energyshare is about sharing information and bringing people together to get more using and producing renewable energy. There are some really useful resources on making and saving energy.

Perhaps the most exciting part is the Energyshare Fund, where £500,000 of funding is available to successful applicants of community energy projects. It's really worth reading and considering applying for if you're interested.

They have an open day at River Cottage HQ in Dorset on May 18th - details here.
