Reliable and sustainable micro-hydropower in Nepal13 February 2018Joe Butchers from the Electrical Energy Management Group travelled to Nepal for a 5 week study, funded by the Cabot Institute, looking at the technical, social and economic issues that lead to poor performance of hydropower plants. In rural areas of Nepal which are not covered by the national grid, local communities depend on micro-hydropower plants. These plants divert water from rivers and use it to power a generator. The resulting electricity can be used to power homes, businesses, schools and health centres. When problems occur, many people have no other source of electricity and their lives are badly affected.

Seeing colour in a contemporary light21 October 2015Colours are not physical things but the result of a process that starts in the eye and continues in the brain. The limits of colour constancy, when the colours of objects appears the same under different lights - from daylight to LED light, will be explored by a leading visual neuroscientist at a free University of Bristol public lecture next week [Thursday 29 October].
