Exmoor is going 'green' as the national park faces up to the challenges of climate change.
A project to put in a generator using tidal energy near Lynmouth, that might eventually provide most of the town's electricity, is at the testing stage and is being supported by the park authority.
But Exmoor also faces a challenge from the impact of the green efforts of others: large-scale wind and solar generation sites outside the protected area.
"There is the worry that we will be hemmed in by wind turbines and solar farms," said Dr Stone.
"We are fortunate that solar farms face south and so are less visible from Exmoor, but wind turbines as far away as the north of Barnstaple are highly visible."
The park authority was careful to try to balance its duty to protect Exmoor with the desire of others outside who want to increase generation capacity from renewable sources,
