Resillient Energy Great Dunkilns

Regulated investment company arranging renewable energy projects

Abundance connects people with energy project developers, so that everyone can benefit from the growth of UK renewable energy.



Resilient Energy Great Dunkilns (REGD) is a joint venture between The Resilience Centre and Anthony Cooke, the entrepreneurial owner of the farm where the turbine project will be built.

The project is the first Community Scale wind turbine to get planning permission in the Forest of Dean. The turbine was built during September and since October 2012 has been operational and generating electricity.

Social Impact

As with all Resilient Energy partnership projects when the turbine is operational it will provide a local community donation avergaing £14,000- £18,000 per year of operation. The community donation will be used to develop local infrastructure and community services.

We're very pleased to announce that the first community benefit payment has been paid! In total, £4,000 has been distributed to a variety of very worthy causes:

  • £850 to St Briavels Heartbeat towards a defribrilator and a battery for an existing defibrilator which was supplied without requisite battery. So the village will now has two public operational defibrilators one in Assembly Rooms and one in Sports Pavilion.
  • £800 to St Briavels school PTA for two laptops.
  • £500 to St Briavels Music Society who put concerts on in the church - to cover admin costs for next 12 months
  • £1500 to Memorial & Sports Ground for a zip slide for older kids 12-16 yr olds.
  • £350 to Mother & Toddler Playgroup for some storage for toys & equipment.


St. Briavels (pronounced "Brevels"), was once known as 'Ledenia Parva' (Little Lydney) and stands on the edge of a limestone plateau above the valley of the River Wye, just on the English side of the Welsh border, above an ancient ox-bow of the river.

The village is sheltered behind the crumbling walls of its 12th century castle which was erected by Milo Fitzwalter, Earl of Hereford in 1131. St.Briavels Castle has been a Norman fortress, a Royal Castle & hunting lodge of King John and visited by Henry II, who made St Briavels Castle the Administrative and Judicial Centre for the Forest of Dean. It has also been a prison, a school & a private house, but today it is a flourishing Youth Hostel!
