Wave energy could provide over 10 per cent of the UK’s electricity needs, and we’re closer than ever to turning this potential into reality. But we need a more intelligent approach to make sure this happens.
After eight years of heartache, we have finally decided to decommission our Hertz pellet boiler because of all the problems that have befallen it. So, if you are a business considering investing in a biomass boiler using the Renewable Heat Incentive, here’s 10 things you should consider about yourpellet boiler before you buy it (and your installer won’t tell you about).
New data released last week shows that investment in fossil fuels is still more than double investment in clean energy. But increasing awareness of risky carbon assets and rapid falls in the cost of renewables could change this sooner than we think.
As debate around the latest incarnation of the controversial Severn Barrage scheme rumbles on, an alternative vision for renewable energy in the Bristol Channel promises comparable amounts of power, less environmental damage and better long-term economic prospects. So is it time for a rethink?

Inspiring, green and innovative: why I came away impressed by RegenSW’s Renewable Energy Marketplace
What do an electric four-wheel vehicle you can peddle, unobtrusive secondary glazing and a bit of brass piping that makes it less expensive to run a combi boiler have in common? They all originate from the southwest and they were all being showcased at RegenSW’s Renewable Energy Marketplace (REM) this week.
Businesses can now implement energy efficiency improvements without having to pay the full cost of these measures up-front under the Green Deal. But the Green Deal is not the only option available.
We are facing a water crisis and our energy security is being compromised. Meanwhile, our utility companies are hiking up their prices. So what can we do about it?
16 years ago upon a Cumbrian hilltop, it was proved for the first time in the UK that ‘crowdfunding’ could harness renewable energy. Today, crowdfunding in general is forcing its way into the mainstream. So, will 2013 be hailed as the year when decentralised finance for decentralised energy came of age?
