The Government is committed to developing the production of renewable energy, especially in generating electricity. Where this is derived from onshore facilities, it will involve the use of land, either for the installation of turbines or for growing fuel for power stations. Meanwhile, agricultural incomes have fallen and the CAP is being reviewed so that more farmers are having to look at alternative uses of their land. Becoming involved in renewable energy is one such alternative, but it is a new and relatively untried area that comprises a wide range of issues that need to be properly assessed.
This publication offers an investigation into the policies and practicalities within the UK of providing alternative sources of energy to fossil fuels, notably wind power, biomass and bio-fuels and considers the main factors that are involved in putting them into practice.
The issue is relatively new and most landowners or professional advisors encountering it will have little knowledge or experience of it. Material published by Government and industry organisations is influenced by political and commercial needs to proceed with specific solutions and does not provide an impartial guide; this work intends to give the balanced/impartial standpoint.
