Ecodyfi

The Venture

Ecodyfi is a bilingual locally-controlled organisation based in Machynlleth. We were established in 1998 and have been fostering and supporting a greener economy and community ever since. Mostly we work in the Dyfi valley and the UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere area, but also in other parts of Mid Wales. Renewable energy, responsible tourism and community development are our three main areas of expertise. All profits are used to support our aims, as we have no shareholders.

Ecodyfi activities have varied over time, depending on resources, with renewable energy and sustainable tourism receiving the most consistent attention.

Projects have included Tirwedd Dyfi (exploring the links between Welsh language, culture, landscape and nature); working with tourism providers on sustainable practice, product development and joint marketing; and supporting the setting up of Bro Ddyfi Community Renewables Ltd and other community energy projects.

Annual dividends from their two wind turbines are placed in the Dyfi Community Energy Fund and managed by ecodyfi to reduce carbon emissions locally. There have also been projects around being active in the outdoors, reduction of ecological footprint of the valley, transport, waste, fair-trade, lifelong learning … In addition, ecodyfi continues to play a crucial role in facilitating the active collaboration required to make the most of the UNESCO designation for sustainable development, the Dyfi Biosphere.

Beyond the Dyfi Valley, contracts with the Energy Saving Trust, Severn Wye Energy Agency and Development Trust Association Wales have allowed us to support communities and businesses with renewable energy and resource efficiency schemes.
