Working with our green energy partners, we’re making a difference at our special places across Wales. From stunning solar at Bodnant Garden and Chirk Castle to our holiday cottages that offer greenery, scenery and sustainability, we're harnessing the power of nature and going greener from coast to countryside in our castles and country homes.
The waterwheel at Aberdulais generates green energy for the site as part of a ground-breaking hydro-electric scheme. So a tradition dating back 400 years or more goes on.
Growing the latest renewable energy technologies at a historic garden.
Its over 700 years old but 2009 saw our castle being brought bang up to date with some 21st century green energy modifications.
Now generating more energy than it uses, the National Trust's Powis Castle in Wales, could be one of the first energy self-sufficient nurseries in Britain.
Llanerchaeron was designed to supply all its own needs as well as that of the local community. Today we continue that tradition by producing our own reared meat and produce from the garden.
As well as being home to our farming scholarship, Llyndy Isaf, has played host to an array of cleaner energy projects in a bid to help make the farm more sustainable.
Penrhyn Castle, our last bastion of oil-power in National Trust Wales, switches to biomass heating.
We’ve built the UK’s largest marine source heat pump so we can use the sea to warm up a Welsh mansion. It's part of our ongoing programme to use more renewable energy.
