In 2009 the Welsh Economic Review ran a special issue on energy and interviewed several commentators within Wales, including myself.
In 2010 a polish TV company made a 45-minute video interview about the history and operation of the Centre for Alternative Technology.

In 2013 I was interviewed by Allan Shepherd as part of the Oral history Archive for the Centre for Alternative Technology. This is a long interview covering my entire life-experience including the origins of ‘alternative technology’, changes within the environmental movement, and the evolution of CAT up to the ‘emergency period’ after 2011.
