Over 100 NFU (National Farmers Union) members, Farmers and landowners rubbed shoulders at an event packed with information and case studies on the benefits of installing renewable sources on their property / land.
Business Weekly reports that the event, featured guest speakers on Wind, Biomass, Solar and Ground Source heating.
Whilst large scale wind farms have met with strong local opposition, smaller installations aimed purely at powering farm machinery like milking equipment, might prove more palatable to locals and the energy savings could be huge for farmers, whilst also providing an important revenue stream from their land.
The conference, held in the East of England was such a success that another is already being planned.
