Glastonbury and UWE Bristol announce partnership
The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) is delighted to announce a five-year official partnership with Glastonbury Festival, after researchers developed the Pee Power urinal.
The Pee Power urinal that turns urine into electricity, designed by researchers in Bristol BioEnergy Centre (BBiC) based at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) at UWE Bristol, has been in operation at the festival since 2015.
UWE students will also research energy efficiency measures in collaboration with the festival power providers, stage production teams and mobile traders.
The agreement will last for five years and formalises the ongoing work between the two organisations.
Professor West said: “This partnership cements a relationship with the festival that has been working for a number of years.
“We are focusing on sustainability projects that matter deeply to the University and resonate with the ethos of Glastonbury Festival.
“The partnership means we can contribute to helping Glastonbury Festival with waste reduction and energy efficiency and also demonstrate Pee Power, a flagship research project for UWE Bristol.”
The agreement between the university and the festival states: “The parties commit themselves to exploring mutually beneficial collaborative projects promoting sustainable development and providing valuable opportunities for students to gain experience of working in this unique environment.”

The En Indy Awards
The story of David and Goliath is well known but the reality is that Goliath normally wins and this is reflected in many industry awards programmes. EN introduced The Indy Award recently to cater for exactly this – to allow smaller, independent organisers to compete with their peers rather than the global behemoths we know and love.
