About The Prospectory

The Prospectory carries out behavioural psychology and technology research projects. We are involved in a few collaborative research activities and also self-fund our own projects.

Our main interest is in experimenting with ways to……

  • Use less energy but have more fun
  •  Exploit local energy sources – sun, rain and wind,
  •  Benefit networks of local residents, visitors, businesses and communities, and
  • Explore and enjoy the irrationality of human behaviour.

Alongside Prospecting, Alison and Peter are Directors of  Talybont-on-Usk Energy and were founding Directors of the Eco Travel Network which won the inaugural Green Transport Prize in Scotland in May 2013 and the Low Carbon Champions Award for Low Carbon Road Transport Initiative of the Year  in September 2014. Alison is also a member of Larks and Ravens – an experimental arts group.

Sadly, Peter died in November 2019 after 2 years with Motor Neurone Disease. The Prospectory lives on albeit with a slight skewing over time of its projects and interests.
