• ALL-ENERGY, the UK's largest renewable and sustainable energy exhibition and conference, is being held at Glasgow's SECC on May 4 and 5, with a special 90 minute conference session aimed at the farming community - "the Future of renewables and energy management in the rural sector".

  • YORKSHIRE-BASED renewables specialist, Earthmill, has expanded with the launch of a new division dedicated to servicing and maintaining wind turbines.

  • Renewables, promoted so vigorously to the rural sector as a land of opportunity and social responsibility, have lost much of their gloss - not least because of rates for Feed-in Tariffs for solar and onshore wind being slashed, degression across Renewable Heat Incentive rates for biomass, and the end of the Green Deal.

  • THERE could be blackouts - or at least brownouts - in the UK next winter.

  • NEWTON STEWART dairy farmer, Ian Service, will open his doors to farmers and the renewables community for the third - and final - time next Thursday, November 12.

  • CUTS TO support for farm-scale green energy will hit UK farming while it is still reeling from the slump in food market returns and the shrinkage of European farm subsidies, industry bodies have warned.

  • WESTMINSTER'S cull of wind energy incentives will not properly begin til the start of 2016 - but farmers and landowners hoping to beat that deadline have now lost the ability to pre-accredit their installation at the current Feed in Tariff rate.

  • WORK IS set to commence on a second solar park project near Arbroath, Angus, within Robert Ramsay's Kinblethmont Estate.

  • WESTMINSTER'S PLAN to slash the Feed In Tariff paid on farmscale renewable energy will 'kneecap' the sector in Scotland and should be fiercely resisted.

  • THE LACK of discussion from the UK Government on support for renewable energy is likely to cause disruption to community energy projects.
