Perhaps Ian Ryder or XENG might be able to help out.

If you're venturing to Plymouth at all there's the great http://www.earthfromtheair.com exhibition and the National Marine Aquarium is very good also (and has a renewable energy section).

The Earth from Air exhibition is really good, and you can't miss it Razz.

I'd be wary about the National Marine Aquarium, apparently those two wind turbines you can see from outside aren't actually generating any power (interestingly, they're also placed right by exploration equipment from Shell).
