Who we are
Energy Advice Centre is an independent charity
which has been created as a service to promote
energy conservation, the use of renewable energy
and provide independent advice and information.
Climate change and the depletion
of fossil fuels means that we will have to
conserve the energy we use, and switch to
renewable energy sources based on the sun moon,
wind and rain.
Where we are
based in the beautiful picturesque Silverdale
glen, at the old water powered corn mill, we are
now operating from the Green Centre, opposite
Iceland in Douglas.

|Energy Efficiency Advice
Demonstrations include solar
panels (both PV to generate electricity and
evacuated tubes to generate hot water), best
practice in such areas as draught proofing, low
energy appliances, double glazing, etc.
We have videos and books on how
to DIY - whether with wind, hydro, or sun, or even
building yourself an electric car.
Our colleagues at the Green
Centre can also advise on many other green issues
such as recycling, making the centre a one stop
shop for all environment matters.
The Centre provides access
through its library, Internet and Consultation
Service to information which will help
householders, landowners, builders etc. realise
the advantages to be gained by reducing energy
waste and harnessing indigenous renewable energy
