Parc Stormy

Our Parc Stormy HQ is a place for natural innovation.

Parc Stormy incorporates anaerobic digestion, wind and solar energy generation, ultra-low carbon cement production, and Cardiff University’s energy positive SOLCER House. Annually, both CENIN’s two wind turbines produce enough electricity to supply the total energy needs of approximately 4000 houses and will do so for the next 30 or more years.

CENIN’s ground mounted solar array was installed in 2011. It was the largest solar array in Wales at the time. It has a maximum generating capacity of 735kW.

CENIN’s Parc Stormy has been redeveloped from a rundown brownfield site to a cluster of interconnected renewable energy technologies. The concept is modelled on Güssing, Austria, where a vibrant local economy has been created using renewable energy, natural resources and the re-use of waste materials.

A large amount of the project’s success is down to the cutting-edge work of Jeff and Steve Jones, whose outstanding work in the design and build of the electrical infrastructure made Parc Stormy a reality.
