Alternative Energy

The contribution to the UK’s energy needs made by the renewable sector continues to grow. Internationally, both in the developed world and in emerging markets, climate change is becoming accepted as a driver of the need to reduce carbon emissions by a combination of further renewable and low-carbon power generation and increased efficiency in use of fossil fuels.
