The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) (Welsh: Canolfan y Dechnoleg Amgen) is an eco-centre in Powys, mid-Wales, dedicated to demonstrating and teaching sustainable development. CAT, despite its name, no longer concentrates its efforts exclusively on alternative technology, but provides information on all aspects of sustainable living. It is open to visitors, offers postgraduate degrees as well as shorter residential courses; and publishes information on renewable energy, sustainable architecture, organic farming, gardening, and ecologically friendly living. CAT also runs education programmes for schools and sells sustainable products through shops, restaurants and a mail order department.
