New Renewable Energy Website Goes Live

09 January 2014

UK - A new website for farm-based renewable energy in Scotland goes live this week.

The launch of the new website, part of NFU Scotland’s Renewables Development Initiative (RDI), will improve the quality and availability of information about farm-based renewables energy technologies to all Scottish farmers.

The RDI has been established with the aim of providing sound independent advice to farmers and land managers across Scotland on renewable energy with specific focus given to facilitating knowledge transfer between farmers on renewables.

By showcasing renewable technologies in action on farms, the initiative aims to provide a far greater understanding about the true benefits available and what can be achieved.

Aberdeenshire farmer David Smith, one of the farmers featured in the first open farm event held in November 2013, said:

"It is essential that Scottish farmers grasp the opportunity that renewables present."
