Sussex is on the South East coast of England. At the present time there are no UNESCO listings in either East or West Sussex. 

 

A site that is potentially worthy of consideration for future inclusion, is the electricity Generating Station, just outside the Sussex village of Herstmonceux. This site may become more important, as we transition to renewable electricity, with load levelling as the means to store energy generated by solar and wind power, where such natural energy harvesting is irregular.

 

 

 

The missing link between early rural electricity supplies and modern renewables with load levelling

 

 

 

The electricity Generating Station in Lime Park, Herstmonceux, is thought to be the only surviving example in the whole world, of supply to a village, where the technology included battery storage. This site is thus technologically unique. The only extant example of a type of building, architectural or technological ensemble to illustrates this significant stage in human history. The beginning of the modern age of electricity.

 

Battery storage systems are seen as being a modern solution to load levelling, that may soon be supplemented by hydrogen storage, as the load leveling and energy storage medium.

The historic Royal Observatory (GMT), was at one point moved to Herstmonceux Castle, also on the Meridian Line, but was relocated subsequently. Maritime Greenwich became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997 and includes the historic town centre and Royal Park.

 

 

 

 

A World Heritage Site is a landmark or area with legal protection by an international convention administered by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). World Heritage Sites are designated by UNESCO for having cultural, historical, scientific or other form of significance. The sites are judged to contain "cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity".

 

 

 

 

 



 OBJECTIVES & POSITIVES

Being listed as a World Heritage Site can positively affect the site, its environment, and interactions between them. A listed site gains international recognition and legal protection, and can obtain funds from among others the World Heritage Fund to facilitate its conservation under certain conditions.
UNESCO reckons the restorations of the following four sites among its success stories: Angkor in Cambodia, the Old City of Dubrovnik in Croatia, the Wieliczka Salt Mine near Kraków in Poland, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania. Additionally, the local population around a site may benefit from significantly increased tourism revenue. When there are significant interactions between people and the natural environment, these can be recognised as "cultural landscapes".

A FULLER UNDERSTANDING OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT - Due to the pace of development, sometimes significant gaps exist in the records, as to how man leapfrogged from coal fires, to steam, to electricity, computers and finally the renewable energy age, to combat climate change.
